30 Days of Thankfulness - Day 23

It has been another great day here in Tennessee.  This morning we got up early, 5:30 AM, and headed to Cairo, Alabama.  I wanted to visit my Daddy at Sandlin Cemetery, his final resting place.  Sandlin Cemetery is an old country cemetery and it is location that we knew Daddy would love. 
After visiting with Daddy we headed into Huntsville, Alabama as we were meeting Leslie and DeeDee for lunch at Rosie's.  My sweetie and I were anxious to see them as we hadn't seen them in 5 years.  DeeDee is growing up and is now 9 years old.  It was absolutely wonderful seeing them and we had a great time visiting over lunch.  After lunch Gary and L Z went to the movies and saw Lincoln while Debbie, DeeDee and I set off to do some shopping, Leslie wasn't able to join us.  After a time of shopping we just had to stop at Sees Candies for some sweet treats and then we were off to meet Leslie as DeeDee had a date for some ice skating.
It was then time to pick up the guys at the movies.  When we arrived we found out that their movie was not over until 3:00 PM.  Since we had an hour to kill Debbie and I decided it was time for a T J Maxx visit so off we went.  They had some really pretty Christmas decorations but it would have cost me more to ship them home than I paid for them so I settled for a blouse. 
It was then time to head back to the movies to pick up the guys and head back up to Winchester, Tennessee.  It was an absolutely beautiful and awesome day with family.
There is an old saying,
"Having someplace to go is Home
Having someone to love is Family
Having both is a blessing."
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.”  Psalm 100:4-5
Thank you God for the blessings of family!
