Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who celebrate! I hope everyone who’s traveling has a safe commute, especially those hitting the snowstorm we’re expecting on the east coast and anyone else facing dangerous weather conditions. Stay safe and warm and eat lots of good food. If you want, feel free to share some things you’re thankful for this year in the comments. On a personal level, I am thankful for my health and the health of my loved ones, our new apartment that meets our needs and gives us some room to grow, the DW community, and that despite some of the challenges of 2014 I got to see just about everyone I love and care about, many of whom are scattered across the country (and even overseas).

I’m taking tomorrow off, and posting will be light on Friday as well (look for some Friday Links, though, for your weekend reading pleasure). Have a great holiday weekend!

    I am thankful for now. Not the past, not the future, for now. Now is good enough. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all. I’m thankful to have an amazing family and a great job. I’m also thankful for the good health and well being of all my loved ones as well as myself. I miss my godson who passed away suddenly earlier this year.

    PS I’m looking forward to reading AP’s love story updates!

        He’s just a very very very good person and he is all about me and it’s just very very niiiiiiiiice. I think we are good for each other. He’s met my mom and sisters and I’ve met his sister…. And tomorrow I meet his entire family and extended family. Crazy eh? But not at all.

    I’m thankful that my kitties (mine and NG’s) are snuggled on either side of me right now while Navy Guy runs out to get me an ingredient I forgot for my pies. I’m finishing baking them tonight. He’s such a great guy. <3

    I’m thankful to get to spend the morning on my couch watching the parade with caramel coffee and my dogs! I’m thankful for Matt and my friends and family. And the wine and pie in my fridge and that I have enough that I’m able to give back to those who don’t even if it’s a small amount.

    I hope Thanksgiving is going well for all. Like Jane63 above, I am thankful for “now”. It was a gorgeous day. I ate and drank too much. My sister called. My BFF called. Now is pretty good. Happy Thanksgiving all!

    I got to spend my thanksgiving with my parents, a brother, and my grandparents. It was a lovely day, and so good to see my grandparents. They live far away so I don’t get to see them often. Now heading back home to see Othello and my kitties.

    Oh, and my team beat their football rivals in their 150th football meeting!
