"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy: They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." -Marcel Proust
This year will be the first year without any of my family members around for Thanksgiving. Without them, I intended to spend Thanksgiving on the couch, in my sweats, eating a rotisserie chicken. (This depressed my friends more than it did me). None of my friends would stand for this (with their crumpled up faces as if they saw a truck run over a litter of kittens) and I am so very touched (as I am every year) by their many invites for dinner. With my family so far away, all of my friends have opened up their homes and been my second family.
So on this day of giving thanks I would like to thank my friends for always being so wonderful. And, of course, most of all I am thankful for my family whom I simply can't live without.
Hope you are all having a wonderful Thanksgiving!
