Happy Thanksgiving!

I always find the way my day straddle's everyone else's to be a little odd. Do I wish everyone a happy holiday now or in my post that I do later, that for me will be Thursday's post... Ultimately it doesn't matter which I guess is the beauty of it all.

I love Thanksgiving. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite holidays, right up there with Valentine's Day and Fourth of July. It has all the warm fuzzies and fantastic food without the pressure of gifts and decorations and all the other fanfare. As with almost all of the holidays, my family isn't actually celebrating it on its given day. We always adjust for multiple family members in the medical profession and just have our day when we can. This year my sister and I work Turkey Day/Night, so we'll feast on Saturday. I will, however, just be extra thankful all weekend long.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I am the most blessed person on earth. And for this I am thankful every single day of my life. But right now I want to specifically thank all of you for taking time out of your days on occasion to read what I have to say and comment on it. Knowing that you do pleases me and makes a difference in my life. I even (I hope not too presumptively) consider many of you friends though I may not have had the chance to meet you in person. So THANK YOU and HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!

BTW...Dad's kidney function is back to normal, so we're well on our way back:).

Anthony C.--Let me hear those challenge ideas of which you speak.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving, Jennifer.

    My father-in-law and I had a brainstorming session yesterday about our favorite holidays.

    Mine were Memorial Day and Labor Day!!! I guess because we usually spend these days BBQing on our deck with friends. He likes Thanksgiving (because he cooks, and it's a big event for him) and Memorial Day (beginning of summer).

    I honestly have no feeling whatsoever about Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, birthdays, etc. Weird.

    Valentine's Day is an opportunity to go on a date with Fawn.

  2. Belated Happy Thanksgiving to you - glad your Dad is doing well. I read your blog all the time and have only commented once before - I usually sit down and have a cup of coffee while I enjoy your writing - we have similar views on family, life in general, and I love kettlebells
