thanksgiving is a time to reflect on our blessings and to really FEEL appreciative for them. as daily life goes on, we tend to take for granted those things that make our lives special and give it meaning. everyone has something to be thankful for, no matter what kind of life you live. these are the things that give my life meaning..

Love you and your upbeat, sincere, inspiring posts. I hope everyone remembers to be THANKFUL this holiday. There is so much to be thankful for.

And erm, the being thankful for one arm thing made me giggle. Does that make me a mean friend for laughing? ;)

((hug))

Ditto on all the thankful things you've listed and I'm going to add all of my very special blogging friends too. Today this community sent me their thoughts, prayers, energy and made what could have been a very difficult day for me to get through a breeze.
Now my eyes keep wandering over to your reference to EC pizza and double drooling on my desk since todays' pre-op liquid diet sucks!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Diane and Chris. And thank you.
