Gather Here With A Grateful Heart - A Thanksgiving Tablescape

Soon we will gather around our tables to celebrate Thanksgiving here in USA. We will give thanks and celebrate the day with family and friends. 

Turkeys will be cooking in our ovens and wonderful aromas will fill our homes. Tables will be set, whether elegant or simple, it won't matter, for it is the gathering of grateful hearts that makes this day so special.

 As you scroll down the page, I hope you will reflect on what you are grateful for.

I know you are planning your menus and gathering your dishes as all good bloggers do.

From the words of George Washington . . . "that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country . . . "

Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
