On the dawn of this beautiful Oklahoma morning I have much to be thankful for. In just a few hours the house will be filled with our kids, grand kids and lots of friends. My wife and I still have our Dads who also will share the day with us. Twenty-six wonderful people at last count. As I sit here in the calm before the storm and reflect on my many blessings my thanks also go out to my friends and readers, each
who have there own way to enjoy the day.

The smells coming from the kitchen are beginning to make me remember another thing to be thankful for. Just think of Grandmas house on Thanksgiving Day! Sorry Mr. Tom Turkey, one of your domesticated kin, will be the center of attention.

So as my family stands to give prayer and thanks before the meal, I will keep one eye open on the food, knowing full well that my blessings and thanks were given at dawn!

  1. You get up too early Parker! I was going to put up a turkey picture this morning. LOL

    Nice shot by the way.

    How do you ever get an afternoon nap with all of those people in the house? LOL

  2. The more Turkey Pics the better on this day!

    Getting the nap is easy! The Fifth Wheel is hooked up to shore power, so have lights and heat if needed. Will put some soft music on the radio, hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign, and lock the door from the inside so none of the little ones can ambush me!LOL

  3. wonderful post! God bless you and yours as you gather today - and every day thereafter. :)
