It’s been quite a year,hasn’t it? It was a year without a summer. A year of outrage by liberals,led by the Boy Who Would Be King. The emotional ups and downs that comes with living life. We face trials and tribulations and glean joy from many sources.
As with most people,we’ve had some difficult financial times and the everyday stresses that come with getting through the day. This year I spent more time with my grandkids,went to some of their baseball games, and watched RJ Pistol excel on the gridiron, all of which was shared with family and friends. God has granted me another year to be with those I love. He saw us through the trials my beloved child bride had with her heart issues and she recovering well.
I am deeply grateful to my oldest daughter,who put me in touch with my estranged daughter and I met my grandson for the first time. We’ve spoken and had lunch several times and I look forward to sharing some time at Christmas with her, something I haven’t been able to do for too many years.
Not the least of all,I’m thankful to have my friends here,who lift me up on a daily basis. Doing these posts give me a mission in life. A mission to inform,provoke and,hopefully,make you laugh once in awhile. Sometimes DW complains I spend too much time doing this,but I’ve been ignoring her for more than 20 years,so why stop now?
This is the first year she hasn’t had to cook for the family,as we’re going to her daughter’s house for dinner. She’s looking forward to letting somebody else do the work.
I ended up with a lot of Thanksgiving pictures and I must warn you….one in particular is a bit disturbing.
Enjoy your day with friends and family.
