It’s been a hard year, but I’m thankful for:
There’s a million more things to be thankful for, and I assure you that I’m likely thankful for them all. Even with the sorrow, it’s a good life that I have.
And now a little Thanksgiving story. The last time my immediate family was all together on Thanksgiving was in 1998, when my sisters and I were 15, 17 and 19 (before I went to college too far away to come home for a long weekend). After my parents divorced, we would have an early dinner with my mom, drive over to my dad’s house and have a second full dinner around 6 or 7. This Thanksgiving, we were all sitting around the table and out of nowhere, my younger sister bursts out with “And that’s why I wear sweatpants!!” Or at least that’s what the rest of us heard. To this day, she swears that what she really said was “Guess why I wear sweatpants?” The four of us ended up laughing until our bellies hurt.
I hope everyone who reads this has a fabulous Thanksgiving, if you celebrate, and a wonderful Thursday if you don’t!
