Of Things to be Thankful...

So much to be thankful for, so little time to write about it.
Of course, my guys, all 3 of them. We've been a bit insulated lately, with everything that is going on, but we have enjoyed our time together. We have been healthy (relatively speaking of course) and happy. We dont know what tomorrow may bring but right now, in our little world, things are just perfect. So today we will not worry about things we cannot control and just simply give thanks for our many blessings.
Hope everyone is able to do the same. Now off to fix some sweet potato casserole.

1 cup chopped nuts (pecans preferred)
1/3 stick butter -- melted
