Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We're sitting here stealing a few watching the Macy's Parade before the Festival of Cooking begins. I was probably five years old before I realized the parade was for Thanksgiving, and not just because of my birthday. *g* I just wanted to wish everyone the best of holidays and list a few things I'm thankful for...
My wonderful husband -- it just keeps getting better!
My family -- even though far away, I know we're all still together in spirit.
Our beautiful new home, and the fact it will be filled with friends and laughter for our first Thanksgiving here.
Our amazing friends -- both in real life and on the 'net. It's been a year where we've truly seen the worst in people, yet the close friendships we have make us realize that in the end good will always triumph over evil because evil is dumb. Or something like that...
The fact that even in a year of loss, so many new lives coming into the world truly makes you appreciate and stare in awe of the circle of life and the miracle each and every breath is.
Knowing that even though I may not have my health -- I have my life -- and that's truly the best gift of all.
And last, but certainly not least, that each of you visit here each day. For something I didn't even know if I would keep up with it in the beginning -- it has allowed me to meet several incredible people (both online and in real life now!) -- and blogging has also made it possible for my husband to discover a voice he thought he'd lost long ago. We're addicted to blogging -- and we're proud of it!
I have to save the rest of the sap for the Thanksgiving desserts. Have a wonderful day!

Awwwwwwwww... that gave me the warm & fuzzy goosebumps. Seriously. I would take a picture but I doubt that I could capture it on film. I am thankful for both of you too! Happy Holidays! Let the games begin!
