I want to wish each and everyone of my blogging friends and their families a very Happy Thanksgiving. Even to those that live outside of the U.S. Even though, this is an American Holiday, it signifies all that we are thankful for in our lives.
This year for me, has been a difficult one, as some of you know, and there will be one chair empty, which will be hard, but there are other things that I am thankful for. It could have been 2 chairs and for that, I am grateful. I have my family, especially my sons, their gfs (who I consider my daughters), friends, my blogging buddies and am surrounded by my books, which bring me such tranquility and peace.
There is so much more to be thankful for when you think about it, a roof over one's head, people who care about you, some of those people you have never met but feel that you have known for years, food on the table, health (even though I am disabled and physically limited, my mother always said, "there is always someone worse off".
So have a great day, enjoy being with your family and friends and if you have that 2nd slice of pie, it's ok, you will just have to type faster on Friday to get the extra weight off lol.
