Happy Thanksgiving

The house is bustling about - the turkey is frying, the pastries and pies are all cooling while the sounds of chopping and chatting compete with the cheering and booing of the football game on TV.

This is my Thanksgiving Day in a glimpse...I have not had a big family thanksgiving day like this in - well I can't say when I remember the last one I had with my family - extended family (friends who are very dear family) but not blood line family. Even as I sit here and blog about all that is happening around me - I am oddly at peace and quite happy to just be apart of it all.

Thanksgiving is many things to many people - history has a weird way of twisting the meaning of thanksgiving if you let it, but for me - regardless of how it started or quite how we ended up here - I am very thankful to have this day to celebrate family, friends and life.

I have had the opportunity to share many of them with you, my wonderful bloggie friends, with whom my world would be a little dimmer. Today with my heart bursting at the seams, so much to be thankful for - I want to pass on my thankfulness to you - for being apart of my world and allowing me to be apart of your world.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!

Thanksgiving can be bittersweet for me. For most of my life, we celebrated at the home of a dear uncle & aunt. My uncle passed away several years ago and my aunt just can't handle all of the relatives alone, so we just have individual celebrations now. I miss my uncle and all of the good times in the past.

It sounds like the perfect day! I hope your Thanksgiving weekend has been all you could want it to be and more!

Thanks again for letting me blog for you and again, I'm sorry it was late. My Internet access was limited and my Beckett was needy when I did have access.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!!

When I was younger, my extended family used to all get together. Now it's just my parents and brothers and sisters... which is still a lot of people, but just not the same!

I'm glad someone else appreciates a good deep-fried turkey! Yumm!!
