Happy Thanksgiving!

Jackie's TV Blog, holidays


I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends, food and love! Although the times aren't easy these days, friends and family are something that we're all thankful for everyday.

While in no way a compete list, I'm thankful for many things this past year:
  • Having friends and family I care about and who care about me.
  • Knowing so many GOOD people who keep my life interesting.
  • Working for a company where I have a fairly secure job despite hard economic times.
  • Having health insurance and short term disability insurance, both at a very reasonable cost.
  • My successful knee replacement.
  • My cat Vincent, as nutty as his person.
  • New Jersey for being as weird as it can be.
  • Trader Joe's and Peapod grocery delivery for feeding me well (at a cost, of course).
  • Coke Zero
  • Adventures in the Outer Banks with good friends.
  • Chocolate.
  • My photography addiction which keeps both mind and body active.
  • Technology such as Facebook which reunited me with family and friends from my youth.
  • You -- the friends who have been a part of this blog community for years!
Of course, my list isn't necessarily in that order! May everyone have a fantastic day!

Love your Thanksgiving graphic! So pretty!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Jackie (a day late oh well.....).
I should have made a list of the things I am thankful for but it would take me forever and I would probably leave out something/somebody important!

Thanks so much for just "being there" for us!

Hope everyone had a warm and love filled Thanksgiving.

Please forgive me for coming here with my "excuses" for always being absent. Well...here goes. My father had a heart attack last Sunday but is still with us. However, he's too old to take a chance with any type of surgery. I'm grateful for still having him even though the prognosis is frightening.

My step-son who has been battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma for the last couple of years may not make it to Christmas according to his oncologist.

My husband is having more tests run as his doctor suspects metastized bone cancer from the tests he's already had done.

Whew! What a bummer I am. I don't know where this dark cloud that keeps following me came from. I hope you don't mind my telling you what's going on with me and why I'm not here enjoying Jackie's "best tv blog ever".

Jackie, seeing that old TG graphic put a smile on my face. I had totally forgotten about it. Those were the good ole days.

Take good care all.
xoxo
