Sunday Reflections…

What a perfect wintry morning! It’s freezing cold, sleet and freezing rain have been coming down, and I just turned 50 years old! 😳

Everyone has been asking me “How does it feel to turn 50”? So I’ve been reflecting & pondering on the question… 🤔

This has always been my philosophy. Growing older is a privilege & if your lucky, you’ll age gracefully … But you don’t have to fully “grow up”! 😊

50 feels pretty good really! I’ve been blessed with a great family & wonderful friends & I love ❤️ my Job! Plus, it’s almost Christmas 🎄

Christmas is coming fast this year!

Christmas is coming fast this year! But, we are all ready for a wonderful Christmas with family & friends 🎅🏻

Thank you All for the outpouring of love the last couple days! It made hitting the “Half Century Mark” a pleasure 😍

“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”

~ Sophia Loren.

Peace, Love & Merry Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to take a minute and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m already busy cooking and preparing my part in what will be a HUGE Thanksgiving spread for our family and friends and I am looking forward to seeing everyone and sitting down and catching up a bit. For our part of the meal I’m fixing a bourbon glazed ham, a smoked turkey breast & “twice baked, mashed potatoes! Jo stayed up late baking old fashioned pecan & French coconut pie’s, both my grandmas recipe 😉 Most everyone else is fixing a thing or two also (green beans, casseroles, rolls, cranberry’s, deviled eggs, dressing with giblet gravy, a big relish tray, more cakes and pies, etc…

A few pictures of Thanksgivings past. Always lots of great food and wonderful people 😍

Following the meal of course is Football, and naps with your belt unbuckled and the top button on yours pants loose, or just gone…  I’m going to try to pace myself 😇

Like I said, have a LOT to be thankful for!!! Family, good friends, a warm home, a huge feast & so much more! Blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours🦃🏈❤️
