I remember the first Thanksgiving I spent married to the most wonderful man on God’s green Earth. It was 1980. We feasted on my mother’s turkey with dressing and pumpkin pie. But that year it was extra special. We were at the beginning of a pilgrimage, together.
That Thanksgiving day led to a cornucopia of delights. We shared a lot of good times since then, but more important, we shared unconditional love.
Traditional Thanksgiving puts things in perspective for me. It is a day when I can remember, with joy, just how much I have to be thankful for. It’s funny how you look back and see it was all in God’s plan.
Although he was a little older than I was, circumstances allowed my husband and me to enjoy life at the same pace. We lived a life that was perfectly seasoned. My husband put things on the table, and with memories of our first Thanksgiving together, I will give thanks again!
