Thankful Day

Today, I am very thankful that our respective families live very close to us so that we may celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with them. While I type, we are driving to pick up my mother-in-law to bring her to my sister-in-law's house, where AJS's three nephews (and perhaps respective S.O.s) will join us.

Rosie helped make the final decision about where we would have our dinner today. While AJS and I were still debating on where to go (my parents', Kelly's or just staying home were also options), Rosie brought out a treasured photo of her with all 3 cousins and placed it next to her bed. So I asked her if she wanted to see her cousins, getting an enthusiastic "YES!!!"

After we leave my SIL's, we're planning to visit with my parents and Auntie M for a while in the evening. AJS bought "The Wizard of OZ" and hopes to make it as much of our Thanksgiving tradition at my parents' as my dad has made "The Quiet Man" a part of our St. Patrick's Day rituals.

We may not be doing as much driving as some of you may be, but it'll do for us.

I wish all of you out there in blogland are celebrating the day, hopefully with friends, family, and lots of delicious food. I thank all of those people out there who are volunteering at food banks and kitchens, giving a hot meal to those who are in need, so that they might enjoy a holiday bounty as well. Thank you for giving, donating your time, and for your generous spirits!

Many, many thanks to everyone!
