Happy Thanksgiving from Kentucky

     Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because for me it has always been a time to be with family. It's never been anything fancy. When I was a child my Daddy would spend most of the day hunting with his brothers. It was always a tradition that we sold our tobacco the Friday after Thanksgiving so I remember helping to load the tobacco, not on Thanksgiving, but often it was that week so the sights and scents of the tobacco barn are linked to Thanksgiving for me.
     Today, we no longer grow tobacco but we still have the livestock to care for so like all farmers, the daily duties of feeding and checking the cattle, goats, and pigs is still part of the day. Hopefully there will be time to relax and watch our Dallas Cowboys win, as the cooks (my Mama, myself, and daughter) spend most of the day in the kitchen cooking a meal filled with our traditional foods of turkey, dressing, ham, green beans, corn, cranberry salad, and delicious desserts of pecan pies and cheesecake.
    I'm thankful for my many blessings, my salvation, family, health,  home, wonderful friends, and to be born and live in this great nation the United States of America. My thanks to each and every military person that has fought for this country and our freedom, and to their families for their daily sacrifices.
     Happy Thanksgiving from Kentucky to all! May God bless you!
