::Day o' Turkey
Deeeeelicious dinner yesterday.
My family went to Frankenmuth for the Thanksgiving buffet.
Later, we saw Four Christmases.
Vince Vaughn's rapid-fire delivery never fails to make me giggle uncontrollably.
Although this has been a very difficult year in many respects, I have had such blessings to soothe me and lift my countenance.
I lost my job in March, but my beautiful friend Annie paid for a trip to Utah so I could visit her and enjoy a change of scenery for a wonderful week.
In July, I fell and sustained two gashes requiring 38 stitches. In the midst of all the swelling, pain, self-consciousness and frustration, I had a camp full of people who showed me unparalleled warmth, kindness and generosity.
They helped me smile, laugh, relax and dismiss my misery.
On August 4, my niece Emma was born.
She may have become my new Favorite Person on Earth.
Her Thanksgiving hat was so precious.
Uncle Joel called her "Poetic Justice."
