Happy Thanksgiving!

"Give me the end of the year an' its fun
When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,
Let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringin' with song,
See the old faces unblemished by wrong,
See the old table with all of its chairs
An' I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers."
- Edgar A. Guest, Thanksgiving

This year, I am thankful:

~That my uncle Mark, who has lived for 26 years with ALS, is home from the hospital after a scary bout with pneumonia.

~ That Baby Sam came through his first surgery with flying colors.

~ That I have a job, no matter how much I complain about it.

~ That spending the holidays with my family is a pleasure, not a chore

~ That I have blessings upon blessings - my life is good!
