We are in Scottsdale, Arizona. A place noted for year around sunshine and warm weather. This Thanksgiving it is dark, overcast and raining. It rained off and on all night. Lita and I have brought children. spouses and grandchildren here for Thanksgiving. We put over thirty people in the Westin Kierland Hotel and Resort here. They brought swimsuits and sun tan lotion when they should have brought umbrellas. Last night we had a family gathering and dinner inside. It was noisy, frenetic and fun seeing everyone.
This afternoon we will have a family Thanksgiving meal at the Desert Highlands clubhouse where our Scottsdale home is located. Perhaps the weather will change, but t hat's contrary to weather predictions.
In spite of the inconvenience of the weather, we are thankful for the many blessings we have received and for the fact we are able to celebrate this Thanksgiving together. To all of you, a very happy Thanksgiving.
