Oh I wish I could be sitting at your table with you tomorrow instead of here packing boxes! *sigh* I usually host Thanksgiving but not this year. I'm pretty sad about it too. Kathy is going to pick up the slack so that we have some kind of Thanksgiving but it will actually be on Friday because my hubby has to work tomorrow. But I am thankful that he has a job. LOL!
Have a beautiful day my friend.

That is truly awesome that your husband has a boss like that. To many people these days are afraid to show their faith in the workplace. Happy Thanksgiving.
