Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving!

I can hardly believe that this favorite Holiday has rolled around again so quickly. This time last year we were totally housebound because Mr. had a terrible fall after back surgery and broke his back in two places. He had a second surgery that left him immobile for 6 months. As a result we missed the traditional family Thanksgiving dinner. Little did I know that it would be the last one. Long story, maybe some other time.

So this year we begin a new tradition, fewer people but clearly the best of the bunch :) I know this one will be special because we have decided to maintain certain traditions while adopting some new ones. We are a family in transition like so many. Most important we are more than thankful for the privileged life we lead in this country.  We have abundant food, wonderful shelter, and good health.

That said, have a lovely day no matter where you are and what you do. It is the recognition of good lives that make this day a memorable Holiday.
Addendum:
***probably one of the best Thanksgiving celebrations we have ever had. The food was great, thank you Dear Son and the best of family and friends. Even the dogs were happy and peaceful. That is always what we always wanted. Thankfulness, in all its forms.
