All Balls

All Balls


With Thanksgiving fast approaching, one can only reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for. We do this, because this time of year is all anyone thinks about - Thank you, thanks, give thanks, get thanks, want thanks, THANK YOU, NO THANK YOU (Gary and the boys will understand). We all have plenty to be thankful for. Some days - more than others.
I have the obvious to be thankful loving and amazing husband of 37+ years. My two wonderful sons. What fine gentlemen they have grown to be. They make a mom very proud. My two daughter-in-laws. They are true blessings in my life. And of course, the ever precious g-babies. Being a grandparent is a GRAND thing to be thankful for. I have good health, I have a job, I have friends and I have the Lord above looking down on me everyday.

I was searching the internet - no really - I was working....and came across a few notable Thanksgiving quotes:
What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets. I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?
- Erma Bombeck

Thanksgiving, when the Indians said, "Well, this has been fun, but we know you have a long voyage back to England”. - Jay Leno

*It took me three weeks to stuff the turkey. I stuffed it through the beak.
- Phyllis Diller

Thanksgiving is an emotional time. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often.
- Johnny Carson

With all that said, one of my favorite presidents was
John F.Kennedy.
This is a quote by him. It speaks volumes, as he did.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.  "      

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone !!
