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.
