Three of our truck driver friends live near us. Last year Margaret invited them to join us for our Thanksgiving meal. We repeated the invitations this year. The past eight years we were always at the chapel on Thanksgiving day. Also, the drivers and our family have other commitments on Thanksgiving day, so we have our meal the weekend before the holiday.
Our daughter Sheri and her two sons, Jonathan and Patrick Sean, came up from Virginia Friday night. Sheri fixes a deep fat fried turkey for her family and agreed to bring her fryer with her this year. Margaret had tasted one of Sheri’s fried turkeys before and loved it.
Ready to begin the feast! Left to right: Ron Jones, Sandy Jones (neighbor and friend from church), Tony Kong, Jay Jones, Jonathan, Sheri, Patrick Sean, Margaret, and Baby Girl. Even though we had three Jones’ with us, they are not related.
Margaret, Jonathan, and Sheri did an awesome job preparing the meal. The fried turkey was delicious. Sandy provided the desert—two pumpkin pies. We have so many blessings to be thankful for!!!
In His name,
Chaplain Sam Houchins
