Tom the Turkey


Thanksgiving a few years ago.

It was my mother's habit all of my life to take a picture of all the grandchildren around the Thanksgiving turkey. My daughters are both seated and my niece and two nephews are standing.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving day. Remember in the midst of all the chaos and hard work to be grateful for those in your life.

I will not be with any of my own family this year but instead will be spending this first Thanksgiving with out my mum at my in-laws. 

Honestly, my wish would be to stay home for the day and not get out of bed until it's over. But, I am happy that my husband will get to see his own mother after a few years of not seeing her due to distance and COVID. 

I am blessed beyond measure with my daughters, my son-in-law, my grandchildren, my husband and his family. 

Happy Thanksgiving eve y'all.  


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you, and thinking of you as you spend the first Thanksgiving without your dear Mother. I was going to spend the day with my in-laws, but my brother-in-law broke a bone in his shoulder and they are taking care of him, so no big Thanksgiving. But my son will cook the turkey this year, his first year cooking the turkey. Sometimes it's nice to have a small and pleasant gathering.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
