Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Joke

what are you thankful for, this year? me? I'm just thankful to have a job. even if I have to work on thanksgiving day. we had our thanksgiving dinner earlier tonight. it just wasn't the same this year. one of my kids had other plans so it felt like someone was missing.

also, I am still struggling with money, trying to catch up, so my oldest son bought the whole meal for us to make, this year. another thing I am thankful for... good hearted kids and the kindness they have at times like these. I have already announced to the ones who came over tonight that there will be a Christmas dinner, but no prezzies, not even little ones. it hurts me deeply to be in this situation. it is the first holiday for me that I wont be giving presents to anyone, EVER.

and I am NOT happy.

Diane and I are very depressed about it, so we have decided to volunteer at one of the shelters in town to serve the homeless and less fortunate on Christmas. at least we have time to do so, and it doesn't involve money. gifts from the heart always mean more, in my opinion.

I hope whoever reads this has a blessed and happy thanksgiving today! may God always bless you.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Diane. I think it's lovely that instead of staying depressed, you are taking this opportunity to help people in need. You are simply amazing.
