Happy Thanksgiving!

To everyone!

We will have our whole family here through that! So I doubt I will be online much...
Plan to eat good (oh yeahhhh) craft with grankids (probably make dough ornaments) play cards, watch movies ....laugh, laugh, laugh....and eat some more!

So thankful to The Lord for His love...and assurance that He has us in His hands...

Hope everyone is enjoying family/friends ....and praying for those serving in our military and those away from family....And safety for all who are traveling...

Hugs to all
