It’s going to be a festive week. Lots of Thanksgiving dinners to attend, food to be prepared, and families to arrive. I’m wishing and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving week, be careful if on the roads traveling, and, remember, there is always something to be thankful for.

Thoughts and prayers who will be celebrating without their loved one for the first time. It’s hard to see that empty seat, and miss their smiling face, but we know they are having an even bigger and better feast in heaven with the Lord.

This Thanksgiving is our first without having my mom present. With Alzheimer’s, we never knew what Mom really comprehended of what was going on around her, or what we told her, but just her presence there was comforting for me.

Our weather is staying on the cool side, which I’m sure all the deer hunters are liking. I’ve seen pictures on Facebook of some really nice bucks, and have heard of others getting ones, too. It sounds like the first gun season was successful.

Mother Nature is going to be testing us come Tuesday morning. Going to be the coldest we have had thus far. Thermal time for those having to work outside.

Congratulations to Colton Logeman and Serina on the birth of their son, Casey Ray, born last week. He weighted 8 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 21 3/4 inches long. I bet he is going to be tall like his daddy. Casey has two sisters, Harper and Delaney. Congratulations to grandma Karen Logeman and great-grandma Lois Logeman.

Brian Miller is home after spending a week in Utah helping his son with a job. Glad he’s home.

Happy birthday wishes are sent this week to Jason Jacobs and MacKenzie Stratmeyer.

We had a great turnout Sunday evening, Nov. 21, for our annual Thanksgiving supper. Lots of delicious dishes and desserts. Thanks goes to those who prepared the turkey and dressing. We even had some turkey leftover this year. We all had a great evening with our church family and friends.

We even got to enjoy a cute Thanksgiving song sung by Beverly Mescher Aevedo. Beverly is home from California to spend Thanksgiving with her dad, Milledge Mescher. So glad you could join us, Beverly.

Wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving. I have a poem to share.

More Than A Day

By Karl Fuchs

As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,

It brings up some facts, quite profound.

We may think that we’re poor,

Feel like bums, insecure,

But in truth, our riches astound.

We have friends and family we love;

We have guidance from heaven above.

We have so much more

Than they sell in a store,

We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove.

So add up your blessings, I say;

Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.

Enjoy what you’ve got

Realize it’s a lot,

And you’ll make all your cares go away.
