Celebrating our blessings

Mrs. Linder, a special neighbor, created the turkeys above, one for each of our grandchildren, visiting for our Friday Thanksgiving celebration. The grands, ages 3 through 11, had to wait until after the Thanksgiving meal for the tasty creations.

After their treat, next on the day’s agenda was a tree decorating frenzy. Mrs. Linder had sent over a treat for the grands to celebrate the Christmas season, too—Rudolph made from a Nutter Butter cookie, chocolate, pretzel antlers and a red hot for the nose so bright.

Thank you, Mrs. Linder!

The blessings I counted were abundant, among them family, friends, food and faith.
