A potato masher. Yes, a potato masher is giving me cause to tell you of reasons to give thanks today. 

My Momma’s potato masher. I don’t use it but I value it; so much that it has a place of display in the kitchen. 
The handle is clear evidence that she used it for years, and she mashed more than potatoes.

I can still see her mashing that pan of berries as she prepared the berries for the freezer and/or strawberry jam. 

Sweet memories! 

As we gather today for our official Day of Thanksgiving, count your memories sweet and give thanks for every precious one yet to be made, even today.
