One more thing I am thankful for

My grandmother and mother died in 1982 ending a lifetime Thanksgiving tradition of having Thanksgiving dinner at my grandfather’s home in Haleyville.   It is times like that when you realize the importance of the mother’s role in keeping a family together.   Plan it, cook it, make it fun and they will come.

Thankfully for me, I have a wonderful sister Jeanette Masdon.  For the past 27 years I have enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving in their home along with 50 other extended relatives.  Jim and Jeanette have been wonderful examples of generosity and hospitality.  Without knowing it, they have been my role models.
