Much To Be Thankful Today

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149



I had Much To Be Thankful Today.  Not only did I get to enjoy a wonderful turkey dinner with my wife and two boys, but with also two families that are close friends of ours, and their children.

My wife puts a lot of effort into our Thanksgiving meal, and the end results are always perfect.  The turkey that you see above was marinaded in wine for two days, and then covered in bacon before it went into the oven.  The whole house smelled so good that everyone was anxious for the meal to begin. 

Today we reflected on how blessed our lives have been, the good has far outweigh the bad.  God has truly blessed us in so many ways, and continues to bless us more and more each day.  We have especially been blessed with a wonderful family and very special friends.

I hope that your day was as special as ours, and that you stopped to enjoy what you have been blessed with.  All of us have far more than we need.  I hope that you have been blessed with the realization of knowing that, and take the time to enjoy what you have been so blessed with.

George, in keeping with the Heritage, marinate the meat. The turkey is probably the only thing we haven't dipped in wine to soften. Hope all were happy.
