Larry & Lee Ann's Journey travel blog

I can't believe it's Thanksgiving once again. 2012 has certainly flown by quickly. As you know, Larry & I are here in Ely, Nevada visiting with Mom. And sister Lori & her hubby Marion too, of course. We have been having a nice time & it will be even better when our niece Tiffany (Lori's daughter) & her family arrive around noon tomorrow to share this special holiday with us. They live in the San Diego, California area so it's a bit of a trip for them. Glad it won't be snowing, even though the kids wish it would! I wish we could be with each & every one of you but of course, that's not possible. So, if you are traveling for the weekend, be safe. And don't eat too much, lol!

And now, a bit of trivia for you:

Did you know that almost 400 years ago, after surviving their first winter at Plymouth, the Pilgrims celebrated a harvest feast to give thanks? And, are you aware that George Washington proclaimed the first National Day of Thanksgiving in 1789, and that Abraham Lincoln revived the tradition during the Civil War? Our Founders thanked the Almighty and humbly sought His wisdom and blessing. May we always live by that same trust, and may God continue to watch over and bless each and every one of you.

May you all share a warm and wonderful day with those you love...
