Thanksgiving

I hope that all of my friends out there know that I am truly grateful for their friendship, support and love they give me all year round -- not just at Thanksgiving.

A friend of mine's mother was in town from the Northeast for Thanksgiving. I met the mother several years ago when my friend invited me to have lunch with them. Since then, her mother and I have exchanged friendly emails and I usually catch up with her for lunch when she is in town. Yesterday, we spent the better part of the day together as her daughter was working. I enjoyed the day so much -- I think I enjoyed mostly feeling for a few hours that I was "part of the family". I miss that -- not having a large family, not having family close by. Thanks Mrs. K for making my day special....and thanks to your daughter for sharing you with me!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. I'll bet that you are having a fine meal.

Rachel is here, as well as two of my Washington Street neighbors, and we're having Thanksgiving with the American students in just a few more hoours.

Rick and I are so much looking forward to having you here in Canterbury next week. Be sure to dress warmly--it is getting colder here by the day!
