THE RACE IS ON

Halloween is over, thank God. I don’t mean to be an old sport, but I just don’t enjoy Halloween anymore. When the kids were little it was fun to celebrate through their eye, but now as I am OLDER-ugh- I have lost interest in it. I don’t enjoy seeing the ghoulish, evilest, costumes, and the actions of some people just plain turn me off. I’m sure God hates it too.

But now the holidays that I love are coming. Thanksgiving is one that I love. I enjoy having my children come with their kids for a big feast. Not too many years ago I lived in a tiny little house,(if you put 6 people in it , that was too many!) and I couldn’t have a dinner. Now that I have a bigger house I want them ALL to come! My poor husband needs a nerve pill when all the brood comes in. He is not used to a big family, and the great guy that he is, he braves it like a trooper. It is not unusual for people to graze at the buffet table and then go stand and eat. I love it, my husband says he has never seen me happier than moving around talking and laughing with my family. He is right , I am in my glory then. You never know who will not be here next year, is this the last time I will see them?, so I hold it very dear to my heart to see my family. So I guess I will start baking pies and other things before the big day. can you just smell them?
