Happy Thanksgiving

It's a time to be grateful and I have a lot to be grateful for.  Thanks to my friends for sticking with me for the person that I have become.  I don't know what I would be without my friends and family.  We have so many material things that we sometimes overlook the most precious gift of all -- love and support.

My family growing up wasn't the most functional of families so holidays were many times not the happiest times.  Thankfully, our small family hasn't gotten to that point and hopefully never will.  I'm grateful that Alan and Jen have moved back to the area and we can see each other more frequently.

What are you grateful for this Thanksgiving?

Not missing In Action

I promise I am not MIA.  I have had so many thoughts lately -- was going to sit down and write about them and as quickly as I thought about them, they left me.  I even wrote some of them down, and then couldn't find where I had written them.  November has been busy and I've been trying to keep up, but it's amazing to me how much gets by me these days.  I'm slowing down and everything else speeds up -- or at last that is what it seems like to me.  The holidays are fast approaching and I feel like a deer in the headlights.  I'm anxious in a bad way and can't really figure out why.  Hopefully, by the time I do, the feeling will be gone.
