Reflections of the Day & a Winner!

I hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving celebration today, and that you've had some time with family, some good food, and some moments to focus on and thank God for the many blessings you have.

I have not forgotten about this week's Booked for the Holidays giveaway, but when I arrived at my mother-in-law's house Tuesday night, I discovered that her internet access was down. I was thrilled when my man arrived this morning and after all the activities of the day he went upstairs and got it up and running.

I am a happy gal sitting here with my laptop as I watch my 'Horns beat up on Texas A&M. (Sorry Xandra - can we still be friends?!)

We spent the day at my father-in-law's Alzheimer's facility. Unfortunately he wasn't feeling well and slept much of the day. But possibly the sweetest memory I will have from this day is seeing my girl feed her granddaddy his supper tonight. Such a compassionate heart she has, and she loved doing it.

I'm looking forward to hearing how you spent your day!

Oh yes - congrats to Cathy Davis, the winner of The Cure! Email me your address and I'll send it your way!

Congrats to Cathy!!!

My day was busy we dropped my sweet dh off at the airport for his trip to Holland to see his family, and then came home bummed as we already miss him...we came home to a call from a wonderful friend who invited the kids and I to have Thanksgiving with them...so we had good food, great friends, and none of the work!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

So glad to read of the kindness of your young daughter. Many kids might stay away from this type of encounter but she demonstrated her heart of compassion.

We had a quiet turkey day at home eating and watching the Macy's parade.

If a little good natured rivalry came between us, then we weren't good friends to start with! :)

That's so sweet about your daughter...those are the things she'll remember forever.

Linda ~ What a precious memory of your daughter and FIL. One of my sweetest memories (albeit bittersweet) was of the Tongginator during my FIL's funeral service. She cried so much before falling asleep in my arms. It touched the hearts of so many around us - they KNEW how much she missed her grandpa.
