Well, here I am on Tuesday, trying to come up with a Friday post because I looked at the wrong topic…(should have realized we were doing Thanksgiving). Since my out-of-state relatives will be in tomorrow, (and you would not believe how much work I left for myself; never again This place WILL be easily guest-ready like it used to be),I am dashing this off.
I am grateful that my family has come through so many twists of fate and that we are all together, reasonably well and in better position than many others who have no jobs or roofs over their heads.
I am grateful that I have found cousins and extended family that have been ready to resume or create relationships among ourselves despite the previous generation’s problems.
In reply to other posts this week, I am grateful to my fellow Foxes and the Hound for taking me in, making me stretch my wings, challenge me and giving me the push to put up my own blog. And in doing that, I am grateful for the response warm from the cooking/entertaining / writing blog communities for their friendship and support,(I wish a little more would spill over to here). If it were not for the Internet, I would be a maniac,(or, perhaps, according to my family at times, a WORSE maniac!)
And although I hope that the rest of you get a chance to read this, I hope I can be grateful that you have lives filled with good-times and family, as I anticipate MY week to be. So, if you do get here and I don’t get back to you right away, I will as soon as the cousins get back in the car for their 2-state drive home.
I wish all of you peace.
