Thanksgiving ~~Thursday Nov 24 1977

Thursday Thanksgiving November the 24th 1977, is a most memorable
yet bitter sweet Thanksgiving.
My Dad was big on all the holidays wanting all his family to be
home and together during any holiday.

On this Thanksgiving I had to work at my new job.   I was sad that I couldn't
be with all my family to enjoy the meal and fun of just being with each other.

Around noon my dad walks though the door with the plate in his
hand saying , you couldn't be with us and I just had to bring your dinner to you.
He then says there is something special just for you on your plate I can see his sweet smiling
face as I unwrapped my plate to see what was special ,  sure enough
 he had went to the garden got me a couple of
turnips peeled them and had them on my plate as a special treat from him.
My dad and I was the only two that loved raw turnips everyone else liked them cooked.
I am so thankful for this special treat that he fixed just for me .

Now the bitter and oh so bitter part that still after all these years
 brings tears to my eyes as I recall this now is he left earth for heaven .
