  • We are supposed to be thankful, but it's just turned into an overeating exercise. And now, a bunch of stores open on Thanksgiving day. Just another reason for people to shop for things they don't need.

  • Counting my blessings, starting with the country I live in, and how amazing it is that this country was settled. Then on to our health, and family and friends and food.

  • At home with my close family it is to give thanks for the wonderful things we have in life. The dinner fiasco every year at my MIL's house is only because I have yet to find a way to get out if without having her come to my house and invite all of her family.
