As Thanksgiving approaches many folks start thinking of all their blessings. I have many. I sit here this morning drinking coffee with yummy local milk and cream. I am thankful for my farming neighbors who work so hard. The sun is shining and I am thankful for this big beautiful world I live in and especially thankful for my little corner here on the Leelanau peninsula.

I am thankful that I have such a great job/life here at Hillside. I am thankful that I have the energy and stamina for the hours that I work and the gratification it gives me. I am blessed.

I am thankful for the kind guests who come through my door and share my home and food with me. I want to share a nice note I received from one of my guests lately. It made me feel so good…

 Just wanted to let you know how much our group enjoyed the dinner at Hillside Homestead. It was a delightful and delicious evening. The careful research and execution you bring to your home and dinner, as well as your warmth and gracious hospitality make for a memorable event. We wish you success in your exciting venture. And, we’re thinking maybe a smaller group of ham-lovers might make a return trip!

And her comment at the end about ham made me laugh out loud! I love good ham too. I hope they are able to come back for some good old ham! So thank you for reading! And I hope you find reasons for thanks-giving.

I’m thankful for the wonderful seventh graders who came here recently on a field trip and had a great time using the hand pump in the kitchen.
