A Thanks-filled Thanksgiving

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday with my family.

I am so thankful that I got to see my sister-cousin, Patti!

I am so thankful for the very grand dinner…

I was blessed to be able to spend time with my little niece, Livvy.

I had the pleasure of playing with Betty, the Boston Terrier.

I was extra-thankful that David’s Mom Skyped in so she could join the festivities!

And I was truly thankful for all the laughter and joy that filled the day.

My dad creates an elaborate ceremony of dubbing visitor Grace an honorary Ferguson

Grace was very good-spirited about the whole thing (or maybe she’d mustered her courage with some good spirits). Anyhow, perfect Ferguson material.

Newest turkey in the crew!

Mostly, I was overwhelming thankful for the outpouring of love and acceptance from my family.  It’s there on Thanksgiving as well as the other 364 days each year.

I am a very thankful girl!

I hope you all had a lovely day filled with the things you are thankful for.

“I am grateful for what I am and have.  My Thanksgiving is perpetual.”
