A Happy Heart for Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving from the McLemore's

and the Maxwell's

and the Greene's.....

I love getting together with my family.  This isn't all of us, but we had a great time. The weather was beautiful, the food bountiful and laughter plenty.

Maybe this year means more as my grandparents (in the middle, Grandad in the grey suit and Grandmother in the white shirt with the cane) are in their upper 90's. Just last week Grandad was in the hospital.  I know that these special moments are fleeting.

My dad's dad, my Papa, died 23 years ago on Thanksgiving day.  I remember the day with such clarity you would think it was just last year.  Maybe that's why Thanksgiving is such an important day to me. 

I hope you had the opportunity to be with those you love on this special day of the year.
