Happy Thanksgiving! Or as one of my friends said earlier, Happy T-Gives!
Today was all about relaxing and spending time with each other...and, of course, eating a scrumptious meal. As per tradition, we had turkey. Not just any turkey though. It was a 10 pound turkey. Yup, 2 lbs of turkey per person! Ok, maybe there was a little left over ;).

Today I was especially thankful for:
- My parents. They are pretty much the definition of unconditional love here on earth.
- My sisters. Ditto (^). Miriam, aka magic hands, gave me a neck massage today and Sarah let me test her reflexes. It's quite possible that I whacked her elbow multiple times when trying to elicit the triceps reflex.
- Living in a free country
- Potato mashers...several months ago I borrowed my parents' potato masher and have never returned it since. We had to make-do with forks/spoons as a substitute today!
- And last but not least, I'm thankful for YOU, my friends & readers! You are always such an encouragement and I could never let you know how much you mean to me. Thank you!
