I have, lately, just before going to sleep, listed all the things for which I am thankful. Some people may just think them, but I have to list them. Lists = me. It's a very long list. And it's a very wonderful list. At the top of the list is the fact that I am very thankful that I have the opportunity to share another Thanksgiving with my parents.
I hope you all are surrounded by the people you love (and all the furry ones, too) on this special day. We will be a small group of four (and two dogs) with our 20# turkey, but, luckily, I am almost more fond of leftovers than the main event. We will be reminiscing about Thanksgivings that came before, missing sisters, a brother-in-law, a niece and nephew who cannot be with us, and we will not move out of the kitchen - no matter how hard my mother tries to shoo us into the living room - because, you know, no matter how much other space there is in a house, the kitchen is the heart of the home.
I am very thankful, too, for all the friends I have made though this blog; some of the funniest, kindest, nicest women (and men) ever put on this Earth.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
