Eddie and I are soon to be driving to Birmingham this morning (around 9:30a.m.). We are headed to my brother and sister-in-law's for an early Thanksgiving.
Yesterday, I prepared stuffed celery, sweet potato casserole, and a congealed salad. Eddie made two pecan pies and Shannon (in Birmingham) made a 4 layer chocolate delight. Several of the other family members are making or brining some things, but my sister-in-law Brenda has the bulk of the cooking on her. Since my mom passed away and I moved out of town, the burden for the holiday get-togethers has fallen on Don and Brenda's shoulders because Chris and his family live out of town too. The central location for all of us to meet is at Don and B's.
I want to thank Don and B for going to all the trouble of having all of us pile in on them. I know it is hard work to clean the house and cook for 15 to 20 people. I am very thankful to have my wonderful family. We may not see each other as often as we did in the past, but I know they are there for me and I hope they know the same can be said of me (that I am always there for them).
Sitting here this morning, thinking of all the wonderful people in my life, I realize I am truly blessed. Thank you God, for placing these people in my life. I love each and every one of them.
