Five orange pumpkins sit in a row in front of a distressed, wooden background.

Hoping that you all enjoy today with your family and friends. We went to my cousin Ann’s for dinner Yesterday. All of her children and grandchildren were there. It was so exciting to have 5 babies at the dinner, so for us it is a true week-end of celebrating with family and friends.

I had to marvel at the Kids ( all now 25+) and their and babies. It was heartwarming to look around the room, take it all in, and take pride in the Circle of Life. There were so many young adults there and it made me proud. Ann and my Parents are gone now. We are the Old ones, the keepers of the family. I am an only child but was blessed with parents who never missed a party and so very often hosted it, so I have many cousins who have substituted for brothers and sisters all my life. I am rich in family and friends.

Indeed we have a lot to be thankful for. Enjoy Thanksgiving.

May your Stuffing be tasty,
May your Turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize,
And my your holiday dinner stay off of your thighs!
