Just as they were grateful celebrating their first harvest in 1621 (I know this because I home school now hehe!), I, like the Pilgrims who settled in America, feel blessed to live in The United States of America. With all the benefits and rights that privilege comes with.I'm grateful for the opportunity to follow Jesus. I'm grateful that I can write this blog and reach out across the world to make new friends. I'm even grateful that others have the right to say they would prefer to share their Thanksgiving meal with Hillary (seen here, possibly already tryptophan-injected and ready to serve).
I'm also grateful for choices. And for the ability to gather information to make the right choices. The shopping season is upon us, and toys are at the top of many lists. Until the toy industry is held accountable and the lead and other extremely detramental toxins are not anywhere on any toy on any store shelf, I hope you consider buying American made toys this year. I've come across a link, Toys Made In America. Check into it...you might find some unique and quality-made toys that will stand the test of time and become a family treasure!
Alright, I gotta get moving--I haven't even purchased my turkey! Does KFC do turkey? Bridget? You're the kitchen hero, do you know? By the way, I'm going to attempt her Cinnamon Crunch Bars tonight--I hope I do her proud. You'll find them over at her place. That along with about 50 other great ideas! Okay NOW I'm going. I heart grocery stores the day before Thanksgiving. After getting in from the wet and snowy parking lot. MmmMmmm...nothing better! Does HyVee deliver? Who knows this? Anyone? A Tab soda would be refreshing--where IS the Tab?????
