Plenty To Be Thankful For is my favorite video from last year. What are you thankful for on the eve of this most beloved and uniquely American holiday?
Everyday I count my blessings for my beautiful and thoughtful children (now young adults) and today I am especially grateful for my very hard-working and sweet son Alex. The last batch of several hundred bulbs needed to go in the ground. We did speed planting along the HarborWalk and, in less than 45 minutes–done! Thanks so much Alex for your much appreciated help! His new truck, that he saved for with his hard earned money, came in handy, too!
I am so thankful too, for my wonderful GMG family of friends!
Please forgive the old photo–it only annoys my son when I try to take a snapshot!
Thank you everyone for sharing your favorite Christmas songs. Your comments inspired the idea to post a “Holiday Song of the Day.” Please keep your favorites coming!
Pat commented that her favorite is Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” written by Irivng Berlin for the film “Holiday Inn.” You may recall the Happy Thanksgiving video that we made at the dock featuring the song “Plenty to be Thankful For,” which was also written for “Holiday Inn.” I adore this film and if you have never seen it, you owe it to yourself and your loved one(s) to make a movie night of it!
Bing Crosby and Marjorie Reynolds singing what was to become the beloved holiday classic, “White Christmas.”
