Wow! It's the day before Thanksgiving! What a wonderful time of the year!
This year I am especially grateful for family and friends. As many of you know, our son-in-love, Randall Ricketts, was diagnosed with glioblastoma (brain cancer) in late August this year. He underwent surgery, completed 30 treatments of radiation, and continues to take chemotherapy. We are most grateful he never experienced any seizures or nausea, enjoyed mowing his yard the day he took his last radiation treatment, and returned to work at Bethel University on November 16th, the day after his last radiation treatment. We are most most grateful for the outpouring of love we have received from friends and family who continue to pray for Randall daily. God is good all the time!
I hope your Thanksgiving Day is filled with happiness and joy as you celebrate the bountiful blessings we are privileged to enjoy in this great nation we call home! I am so thankful for the men and women who stand ready to protect us by serving in our armed forces. My hat is off to each and every one of you!
I'll be making the dressing this year for our traditional family Thanksgiving Dinner. I wonder what all of my quilting friends will be making. Whatever you are doing I hope it is just exactly what you enjoy!
