I wanted to take this moment to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that this holiday will allow you to reflect on the many blessings that God has given. I will not be posting this week, instead I will be spending some time with my family and I hope that you too will find yourself surrounded by loved ones.
We learned today that my husbands grandfather passed away at the long ripened age of 95. Grandpa was such a joy in my life. I never had a grandpa, mine had passed on well before my birth. Grandpa seemed to adopt me as his own. He was one who created and planted and would want to fix anything I would pose to him. I wrote a specific story a few years ago about his fruit picker: Click HERE for FRUIT. As well as one about his GREEN THUMB.

These are two dear and precious men that I will forever be shaped by and reflect fondly upon. What blessings that have been to me and my family. We will celebrate them and the lives they lead. There is no sadness, only for missing them, but their lives here were long and well spent. I can only hope the same fate one day.
Its a bittersweet holiday, but one that will be relected on with fond memories with loved ones.
I invite you to join me on Monday, November 28th. Tales from Bloggeritaville will then have it's holiday look and music. I hope you will join me for the holiday celebrations, as well as the return of Thrifty Thursday.
For comments, I would LOVE to know what you are thankful for, and what Thanksgiving traditions you have.
