  1. I keep telling some of my senior friends who don’t have family that can come (or don’t have family, period) that this is a wonderful opportunity to share a meal and a good time on the holiday! I think we need to get the word out to the senior agencies about this so folks don’t have to stay home. Maybe a senior agency could also support a pick up vehicle for those less able. Or maybe they already DO that!

    For those of us with family, we need to be thankful for all we have!
    God bless everyone on Thursday!
