It Was a Blessed Thanksgiving Day

 Dear Friends,

Happy late Thanksgiving to you! We spent the holiday here at Birdsong Cottage, with just our family this year. We have been recovering from a stomach bug that has moved through the family, and didn't want to share!

It was a very wet, rainy day, but it was warm and cozy inside, as we all worked together to make a meaningful meal and time together.

The girls and Frankie had a sleepover in our front room the night before Christmas. They brought all of their bigger dolls and babies, so they could have a sleepover, too. I love that even my oldest girls still play with their younger siblings with their dolls; it is precious to see.

 We hope that your Thanksgiving Day was full of bountiful blessings, as well. It is indeed wonderful to set apart a special day in giving thanks for all that we have been given .


  1.  Come, ye thankful people, come;
    Raise the song of harvest home.
    All is safely gathered in
    Ere the winter storms begin.
    God, our Maker, doth provide
    For our wants to be supplied.
    Come to God's own temple, come;
    Raise the song of harvest home.
