This week I am looking forward to my favorite holiday of the year. Thanksgiving is such an awesome day to me because I am so very thankful to God for all of the many blessings in my life. As I prepare for the holiday, along with you, I clean my home and see to all of the ingredients for the feast. I turn the television on in the morning to watch the parade, and enjoy watching the afternoon football games with my son. These traditions are important to me and to my family. But mostly, I come to this holiday with a thankful heart.

This year I am most thankful for: Jesus and all He means to me. I am also grateful for my family, for my home, and my life here.

It is out of a grateful heart that I am offering a little gift to a sweet pink lady out there. This week I will have a drawing for this little santa ornament. Please submit your comment with what you are most thankful for this year and I will draw a winner at random on Thanksgiving.

I am thankful to be alive...and, as I said in my blog for all humanity and the creatures on this planet that touch my life...including you :-) (humanity not creature!)

Hi Carolyn,

I am thankful to my family, having a home, friends, and all who has supported and encouraged me in one way or another, the pink sisters who are so giving and encouraging!

This Thanksgiving, as all Thanksgivings, I am so thankful for my family and that most of us can be together. I am thankful for old friends and new. I am thankful for always being shown the way (even if I'm too dense to see it the first time around).

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and give them my best wishes.

Hi Carolyn,
I, too, am a woman of faith...without it nothing else would make sense to me. I am most thankful for the closeness of my husband, my children and grandchildren...they are what makes it all worthwhile. May you have a blessed Thanksgiving Day! Your little santa is wonderfully vintage and cozy cute!!

I am most thankful that my kids are healthy and happy and for all my wonderful friendships.

We pretty much have the same routine on Thanksgiving, the parade then football!
