Holidays, we love them and hate them. Back up and remember none of them were to make us stressful, we do that ourselves.
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to God for all He has given us. When possible you get together with family. If your family isn’t close by invite others to your house, have them bring something for the dinner and get to know each other. Think of the “little old lady” down the street, I bet she would be thrilled to come, maybe she doesn’t cook any more but would buy some canned green beans for you to make that casserole. How about the man across the street that lives alone, he could buy the bread cubes for stuffing. See how this comes together. If any of you do this let me know, I want to hear all about it.
Here at Vogt Farm it is a time for family, noise (lots of that) and seeing who needs dinner. Actually I do my first Thanksgiving dinner this Thursday for some people that live alone. They all go to family for Thanksgiving so we are doing the dinner this week.
