Giving Thanks

Throughout my life I have been blessed with God's tender care. Whenever there is a trial, He sends someone to hold my hand.This year that someone was my friend T. Mr. Nomad wasn't able to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with us, so T. and her family graciously stepped in. (Even though they are Canadian, so it really isn't their holiday.)This was our first time sharing a meal together. From the looks of our spread, I think we make a good team. What a feast! I'm so thankful to have a table laden with yummy treats, and even more grateful to have had friends to share in that celebration.

Ahhh. . . .contentment fills my heart as I write this Thanksgiving weekend.


  1. Glad you had a "family" holiday even though Mr. Nomad is off on assignment. Hope he is back safely and soon!

  2. Oh that does look delish!! Such a sweet blessing for you to expand your guest registry(you really should have started one years ago)!!!

  3. Mary,
    You know all too well, it is just part of military life.

    That is a great idea. Why didn't I think of that like about 15 years ago? That would be really fun to look back and revisit. As it is, we are pretty skimpy on photos of the holidays. It seems especially with Thanksgiving I'm always so busy in the kitchen, I don't think of photos until everyone has gone home. :(

  4. I love all your pretty dishes! Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving with friends. I too, always forget to take pictures. I'm glad you got a few to share.
