If your family is like our family, we do revisit many of our traditions with the THANKSGIVING meal with good ole favorites ….. the traditional Turkey and Dressing with all of our favorites accompaniments, such as Sweet Potato Soufflé , Broccoli Casserole, Squash Casserole, Pecan Pie, and other homemade goodies. The Dressing is a Family Favorite that has been “the recipe” and passed down to my sister and me, from Mama’s recipe collection. I showed Noah the little booklet that dates back to the early 70’s for this traditional THANKSGIVING Treat when we were grocery shopping! You should have seen his eyes get big at the idea of using this “ancient recipe”! HA!

Our family’s traditions probably revolve more around the food and menu than anything else. I often wonder about families traditions, through the eyes of Hollywood, with the well dressed families sitting at a table with the silver, crystal and fine china. We have never celebrated Thanksgiving in a formal manner, but more of a family style feeling with lots of casual comfort in our day…. We did try celebrating Thanksgiving one year at the beach, with the dressing of course as part of the menu, with a seafood flair. We all enjoyed it and the change, but that was about 10 years ago and we haven’t repeated that tradition again…… yet.

What is Thanksgiving?

It’s a time to reflect on what we are thankful for…. Don’t you think? We are GIVING THANKS for many things…..

It may that you are grateful for a beautifully bright oasis for retreats
