All the kids are home. Pookie got here at about 3:30 AM and Small Son (who is bigger than me but who I call Small Son to keep him in line) got here at about 4:30 AM. Whereas Pookie came in and threw herself on my bed and declared “Mama I’m SO glad to be home!!” so I knew she was here, Small Son did not. When I woke up at 6:00 to go swimming I was afraid to look out the window and see if his car was out there, lest it be not. It was and the world was right!
My plan for the night was that we would all drink delicious drinks and get merry and play Trivial Pursuit. In reality we drank delicious drinks and we are all ready for sleep at 9:30. We really know how to party – woo hoo!
Tomorrow we will cook and drink and eat and be Merry and we will all tell each other what we are Thankful for. I am Thankful for so much. For good health, good friends, great kids, the means to enjoy the day, and love and wellness. I know that is a little redundant but can we give thanks for love and for good health enough? I think not. Those are the 2 most important things in the world and we have them in abundance and for that I am eternally thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
happy thanksgiving, mom! enjoy your day!
Same to you and your family Pamela! Sounds like a great day is in store!
Hugs for everybody!
Happy Thanksgiving! Your story about your son’s arrival made me smile; for the years I was in college (and other late night arrivals later), my mother kept a stack of post-it notes in the bathroom. She’d wake up in the morning to a post-it stuck on the mirror, and know I was safely ensconced in bed.
There are, I believe, still post-it notes in a drawer in the bathroom.
I am thankful for you, my good friend.
it’s so happy to be surrounded by family – say hello to your “small” son for me. woof!
Glad you have your flock with you – Happy Thanksgiving!
