  • There is so much to be thankful for this year

    Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.

    Dear God,

    Here I am again, my 17th year of making public my thanks and gratitude to you for yet another year of your faithful kindness and goodness to me.

    Lord, you and I have walked together for nearly 40 years, and even when I’ve strayed from the path, you’ve never left my side or dropped hold of my hand, even for a moment.

  • CAC volunteers at food pantry
  • All dressed up for Halloween
  • Make plans now to save leftovers for future meals to save money

    Hello once again my friends. I would love to say wow right now. Wow in that we are already at the holiday season. It seems like yesterday that I was writing about summer foods and grilling and light salads. Now we are talking turkey and ham and all the great holiday food traditions.

  • To fully experience Thanksgiving, remember to count your blessings

    The experience of a traditional Thanksgiving experience was introduced to me by marriage.

    Actually, I had seen it played out on television with the head of the house carving a giant bird surrounded by the adoring sitcom family with each innoxious remark punctuated by canned laughter.

    But I have no childhood memory of experiencing the giant meal. What I recall was Dad working a double shift at the plant in Louisville so others could be off.

  • Be thankful for, and keep protecting, your blessings

    In a tradition familiar to many, on Thanksgiving I will sit down with loved ones and we will take turns giving thanks for the blessings in our lives. We know who we are by what we hold dear.

    I recently had the privilege of sitting down with leaders from diverse groups across Kentucky and learning what they are grateful for. Made up of working families, teachers and students, faith communities, vulnerable Kentuckians and more, they are grateful for things I thought worth sharing. They have given me permission to share them with you.

  • Thanksgiving holiday has ties to Kentucky

    This week, our families and friends will sit down at the dinner table to celebrate Thanksgiving, the oldest of the American-based holidays.

    Nearly 400 years have passed since the most famous of these harvest feasts was held by the Pilgrims and Native Americans. It didn’t become the holiday we recognize today, though, until President Washington and then President Lincoln helped solidify its place on the calendar, which Congress finalized in the 1940s by declaring it to always be on the fourth Thursday of November.
