Today is a day of Thanksgiving.  It is a day when people are supposed to stop and remember what they are thankful for in this day and age. It is a reminder of how far we have come in our unity of a nation because of those who came before us. It seems to me, like so many people aren't thankful for this nation anymore. Politics and negativities have been put before unity and love. It's sad really. People would rather play video games or surf the internet than spend time with their family, talk, be present in the real world, or even exist in a real life social setting.
Today, I planned to make a Thanksgiving dinner for my family. We don't have a lot of money because I am currently in college full time and we live off of my husband's disability which isn't much in its self. However, I planned a special dinner. It had to be tweaked because Tatty was coming home from college and she is now a vegan due to food allergies. It was somewhat difficult to do. I was able to pull it off though. One of the reason's why she is a vegan is because she is very allergic to garlic. I was able to make our turkey today without garlic just so that she could eat it. She is allergic to milk but that didn't stop us from making mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, cornbread stuffing, cheesecake, and pumpkin pie. I had to omit the cinnamon because she is allergic to that too but it really didn't matter. Nobody noticed. The turn out for our dinner was amazing. The turkey was so delicious and the sides were just scrumptious! I can't wait to try the real part of the pies.
Today, I am thankful that I could make a full meal for my family and not have to worry how much it would cost. I'm thankful for certain grocery stores that brought down the price of their vegetables and turkey's to $.39 a pound. I'm thankful that my whole family is under the same roof right now. I'm thankful that they are all getting along. I'm thankful that I have a bed to sleep in and a roof over our heads. I'm also thankful that I was able to facetime my mom, dad, and sisters while cooking this morning. That was especially special to me.

Finally, I am thankful that I am getting baptized on Saturday by our Children's Youth Pastor. I am very much looking forward to this. I know I'm ready. God told me so.
I'm also thankful for you who read my blog, even when the posts are far and few between.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and a safe Black Friday.
