Thanksgiving from Several Thousand Feet Up 26 Nov 2010

We had an early Thanksgiving this year with my side of the family. All of Bubba’s descendants were scheduled to be present. Of course, I was hoping to get a picture of the whole crew. This is the photo we took.
I am thankful for it; however a few family members are missing.

One of my daughters was busy doing this:

This picture is from an earlier show in October. MJ was so busy watching her do her thing that he didn't get any good pictures from this one. My daughter was very happy, but MJ would have been much happier eating turkey and stuffing. I did bring them home big plates of food, which they gobbled up.

My sister’s son and my cousins' husband were also missing as they had to work.

As he always does, my father led a beautiful grace and conjured the memories of our beloved family members who are no longer with us. I am so grateful to my father for his ability to invite them to our celebrations with such dignity and also that his prayers make everyone there feel included, no matter what their religion. 

MJ and my kids enjoyed Thanksgiving today with his side of the family. (I hope they took pictures!) I however am several thousand feet above the ocean on my way to Germany to visit the past and grateful to my husband for supporting me in my quest.

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoyed the day and have lots for which to be thankful.

Scrappy Gen
