Thanksgiving in Palm Desert

Thanksgiving has always been special to me; from when I was a boy and it still is.  It is a time of year that I really do think about what I am thankful for.  I think about my blessings, I think about my shortcomings and I strive to improve as a person.  To be a better husband, a better father, a better son, a better brother, a better friends- a better person.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving week in Palm Desert with the Lovely Sharon.  We went for walks, played lots of golf and went shopping.  We had several dinners friends with David and Wesley and with Art and Aija. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with John and Peggy and Dave and Karyn.

It was a perfect week.  Here are a few photos I took over Thanksgiving:
