Thanksgiving Thoughts

Hi everyone,

Don't faint!!!

Two posts in two days.

WHAT is going on???

Well, I wish I knew.

My usually very chatty friends have suddenly disappeared from my messages and Marco Polo.  Why is it that when that happens, I feel like I've done something wrong?

Oh, wait!

I know!

It is because most of my family has disowned me for some infraction they think occurred; so I automatically think I've done something wrong when my friends go silent, if only for a day.

I did see Terry and two of her grand dolls today.  McKinley and Riley were visiting and having a wonderful time.  Reminds me of the days when my grandchildren actually loved being with us.  I thought it would always be that way, but the world is a cruel master and it pulls the hearts of our loved ones away from us.  Kids are selfish and they forget all you did for them when they were growing up.  

I know a lot of my readers are in the same boat. Sad and hurtful, isn't it?

We were invited to our friends' home in Ozark, MO for Thanksgiving, but because of our sudden, unexpected trip to Des Moines and new construction at our OKC store, we had to cancel that.  We will go to Terry's for Thanksgiving.  We are taking the turkey.

Then Terry and I leave Sunday morning for the 7 1/2 hour drive to Des Moines for two days of Quilt Path classes at APQS (the company that made my longarm and the Quilt Path software).

So, that is what I'll be doing this coming week.  Would love to make some new tops for winter, but I can't seem to find the time with me working at the store and practicing Quilt Path every spare moment I get.  Someday soon though.

Tomorrow is Sunday and I always am excited to watch the service live from Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, TX.  It is a highlight in my week for sure.

God bless you all!   
Hugs, Joy
