My dear friends invited me to their home for Thanksgiving and I accepted.  I so much appreciated the invitation.  I asked if I could bring a dish and of course, Terri said there would be be plenty so there was no need. 

I fretted before I went about stopping and buying flowers or some kind of gift as a thank you.  It was a beautiful day and took my camera.  I was able to take a lot of pictures of their family enjoying the day.  By the grace of God, Rick discovered back in the summer he had a small cancer tumor in his lung and had a lobe of his lung removed.  This made his Thanksgiving extra special.  I took several pictures with him and his daughter and granddaughers.  Although they aren't professional quality - they were pretty good.  I'm glad I was able to do something meaningful for to make their holiday special!

Kathy, I'm sure that meant way more than bringing flowers!  Sounds like you had a good day.

That is a really great gift.  You were there to document the day for them!  What a cool idea!  I hope your day was wonderful.

Sounds like a wonderful day! Getting pictures means a lot. I used to say that people could take my pictures away from me, but nobody could take my memories. Well, as I get older, I realize that my memories aren't taken, but they sure disappear somewhere! LOL So, those pictures ARE quite valuable... to ME! I end up taking LOTS of pictures so I know my memories will be there.

As a guest at my dinner, you and your camera would have been so welcome. It is so hard to get pictures when you're the host/hostess and I'm sure this was the best gift you could have given them. I would have loved for someone to have done that for me.

So thoughtful, Kathy, and certainly a more long lasting gift than flowers. You'd be welcome at my table anytime!
