One phone call to mom and grandma later, finally showered and packed up, we head to Dave and Sue's house, parental units for CHB. They were hosting the shindig this year. Dave did the turkey and Sue decorated the table.
No eating all day, plus several bottles of wine later made for one of the more relaxed Thanksgiving meals I have eaten in a long time! It also made for more tears than I have ever seen before as we all said what we were thankful for.
For me: I was thankful to have the best bunch of friends a girl could ever ask for. They lift me up, take me down a peg (when needed), and fill my heart with their warmth. I am thankful for their support and unconditional love. I am thankful for my children and for my health.
Hope you all had a wonderful meal, surrounded by those you love.
