A Sentimental Turkey

I have been known to be such an sentimentalist.

Saving everything that has such meaning and memories for me.

Many boxes of them . . . just ask the hubby!

I remember the first turkey that my son made.

It is in a box somewhere.

When my granddaughter was in pre-school,

she made her very first pinecone turkey and she gave it to me.

Now, who would cry over a pinecone turkey?

But the thought that she wanted me to have this, made my heart happy!

I wish you and your families a most blessed Thanksgiving.

A day of counting our blessings and making memories

that we keep in our hearts or tucked away on a shelf that makes our hearts happy!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  7. That’s so sweet Shirley, and perfectly understandable for you to feel that way. That cute little pine cone turkey is far more precious than anything that can be bought.

    (When you said your son’s first turkey is in a box somewhere, for a second I thought it was real!) lol
