I hope everyone has a very blessed Thanksgiving.  I am going to go and see my mother.  I haven't seen her in a long time and she is 83 years old.  It is always good to go home and be with family, especially when you don't get to be around them much.  I wish my sister could come but she will be spending it with her children and 5 grandchildren.
I will be back to share pictures of our Thanksgiving and my wonderful family.
Blessings - Maxine

P.S. Blogger is not cooperating very well today.  It has highlighted some items in white and I don't know why and put in some spaces for some strange reason.
