***I made it through Thanksgiving. It was a great day, but thoughts of my mother were at the forefront of my mind all day. It was hard not to just spend the day crying. I could have done that, but Mom would be furious with me if I did. She would tell me that I wasted my day. I decided to focus on my family that was with me. I’m so thankful for each of them and we had a great day. I did have moments of tears and when I did, my kids and husband were right there with hugs. 1st Thanksgiving without my mother is now history. That’s all I’ll say about that.
Hope all my US friends had a great Thanksgivng holiday wherever and however you spent it. If you have any leftover turkey, I have found some great ideas on what to do with it, thanks to my sweet and beautiful friend, Karen Ehman. Visit Karen’s blog for 10 creative and easy recipes. #10, Turkey Quesadillas, is top of my list!
Blessings to you my friends. Enjoy today and the rest of your weekend.
