We had a great Thanksgiving! We all met at Mama and Daddy's house just like we do every year and we wobbled home around 5:30, loaded down with food. I have never gone to my mama and daddy's house without taking stuff home! It's gotten to the point that Ami and I take our own containers now for leftovers.
I went with Daddy to visit Maw in the nursing home and it did me so much good to see her. She has good days and bad days but I guess that's to be expected. One of the things I'm most thankful for this year is that I still have my 86-year-old grandma with me.
I'm also thankful for my parents' love and devotion, their health (they've had a pretty good year!), my sweet sister and her husband, who I wouldn't love more as my brother if he'd been born to us (although that would have messed up Ami's future big time!! Ha!). I'm thankful to have a husband who adores me. I honestly cannot live without him. I'm thankful that I have a home, a warm bed and plenty to eat. I'm thankful to have a job that I enjoy and for the new friends I've made there. This time last year, I was reading stuff on the internet about Citi closing and downsizing and I was fearing for my job. What a difference a year makes!
I read this the other day and I was so touched by it that I thought I'd share it. I think it's how we should observe Thanksgiving and every day.
