In 2008 we started a new tradition (I guess by now you know I really like traditions). Evie made this beautifully colored paper mache' "thankful bowl" in class. Everyone writes what they are thankful for (anonymously) on strips of paper and puts it in the bowl and then we read the thanks out loud. I thought Adrian's said it all. Friends near and far are part of our family too. What's most important in life is our relationships with the people we love and who love us. There are many other things I am thankful for but that one is the most important to me.
But on a lighter note I do have one to add......
I am especially thankful that I did not have to cook a turkey dinner this year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
