The American holiday of Thanksgiving dates back to the early 1600s when the Pilgrims began settling in North America. Once established and finding that with hard work there could be a bountiful harvest they celebrated by gathering and giving thanks.
I’ve so much to be grateful for and I try and be thankful each day. I’m not always successful so Thanksgiving gives me a chance to make up for those occasions I forget.
Arranging dates with our extended family for holiday get-togethers can be a challenge, so our main family Thanksgiving dinner was this past Saturday — deep fried whole turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry dressing, pumpkin pie, etc. The wife and I will be eating leftovers today.
I hope each of you has a wonderful day.
