Thanksgiving at Grandmas


Today (originally posted Thanksgiving of 2007) was a special day spent at my Mom's. Once-small grandchildren, now grown, all working together to help Mom as she helped their Grandmom get everything ready and on the table in time. (I shared more about that at my Memories and Nostalgia blog.)

Thanksgiving isn't just about eating, it's about families gathering, helping, and supporting one another; it is about looking around a table at 3 or more generations and appreciating how quickly time passes and how not a minute should be wasted; it is about tears and laughter; it is about a tradition of helping and loving passed on from generation to generation; it is about love and thanking God for the many blessings He has given us.

So ends a beautiful day with a thankful heart. Thank you to all of you Grandmoms who make this blog a fun place to visit!
