Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, all of you who celebrate it.  May you have a wonderful day full of family and friends and good food.  Things have been kind of rough for me lately, so I decided I better think of the things that I am thankful for.  I am thankful for in-home hospice, so that my sister-in-law and brother can spend as much time together as possible.  I am thankful that my brother has a job which let him save up his vacation days and take them now, so he can stay home with his wife.  I am thankful that my older nephew now has a wife and two lovely boys, to help him get through this difficult time.  I am thankful that when my Mother fell three weeks ago she only cracked a vertebra and didn't break anything, like her pelvis.  I am thankful for all our wonderful friends, who are making sure that my Mother gets to her doctor appointments.  I am thankful that my Mother is beginning to feel a bit better.  I am thankful for all my online friends, who have helped me so much during the bad times and provide me with so much good cheer all the time.  I am thankful that I have Thanksgiving Day and Friday off, so I can cook a good meal for my Mother and me, then rest up a bit, because I am exhausted.  Grin.  There is nothing like working in a grocery store the week before Thanksgiving to make you grateful that the big day has finally arrived.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I had no idea you worked in a grocer. Does this mean we can get discounts on cat food?! I can make it worth your while...

What? who me? I didn't say anything...

Happy Thanksgiving, Karen. My memere fell too. She got her slipper caught in the heater grate, hit her forehead on the wall, and smacked her face. She is all puffy. Mom is really worried, because she is 74. Hope your mom gets better soon. Glad you have tomorrow off to recuperate.

Happy Thanksgiving Karen Jo! Mom says it is amazing all the things we have to be thankful for even in the midst of trouble. We hope you had a wonderful time with your Mother today.

Thank you very much for your kind comments for Ruckus and my Daddy. It is amazing that you can give so much encouragement to others while you have so much going on in your own life.

Your limericks brighten our days even when we don't comment. We are glad to call you friend and we love you.

There’s a wonderful limerick lady
Who makes rhymes that neither pentameter or ionic.
So this isn’t a limerick or quite a poetiac,
But something that’s nearly betweeniac.

Oh Karen thank you for sharing about your family! I will certinly keep you very close in my thoughts during this time right now.
Try not to exhaust yourself, for who would take care of the caregiver if you did? Take a small moment each day to close your eyes and reflect on the things in your past that were beautiful and rewarding to your soul...go to that place then for a brief repite from today.
Love and hugs from Karla & Miss Peachy
