Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is more than just spending time with family and friends

Fall
As we draw closer to the end of Thanksgiving week, it ushers in a lot of emotions. It can be happy for some, and a very sad time for others.  There are people traveling all over to meet with family and friends they may not have seen in a while. This is the start to the busiest time of the year. In the midst of summer we was all wishing for fall to get here, now fall is almost over and it is about time for Winter. I have to say that this is my favorite time of the year. It starts with College Football season and one of my favorite things to do, Hunting. Then we continue on to Thanksgiving then Christmas. We have to remember, though, that Thanksgiving is more than just spending time with family and friends, it is about being thankful for what you have. Continue reading “Thanksgiving”
