This was a Thanksgiving to remember! Last night, we began sorting through Mom's and Dad's belongings as a preliminary step to putting their house on the market. Sally and Karen decided it would be easier to buy our dinner at a restaurant so Thanksgiving was courtesy of Boston Market. They gave us a great deal on a meal for twelve and since there was a mix up, they threw in two free turkeys! Surrey Place provided a spacious room as well as drinks and plates/utensils free of charge! There were thirteen of us between the folks, the three boys, wives, grand kids, and Seth's lovely girlfriend, Lauren. Dad was so thrilled to have us together as a family, especially to spend a holiday with Mom. We opened our meal, at Dad's request, with the reading of Psalms 20 and 73. After lunch, we retired to the chapel and entertained ourselves for another half hour by singing, laughing, and just being together. Dad was worn out by the excitement and Mom was as well. We hope we have more of these celebrations in future years as a family. May the Lord bless you this November 22.
