Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for our blessings...even though as a child I thought it had something to do with celebrating turkeys. Whatever you believe, it's a recognized holiday and I don't have to work.
So I am spending this week with my family and stuffing myself until I can barely walk, then waiting a few hours before doing it all over again. Why exactly do most of our holidays involve eating?
I'll be back next week or sooner if I just can't stand to be unplugged for that long but before I go I just want to say...thank you.
To every friend I've made online, to each person who comments and to those who just lurk, to all the aspiring writers who struggle with me every day, and to those who've made it but haven't forgotten a second of what it was like. Thank you. For all your support, for every single time you make me laugh, and even for those times you make me cry.
This is how pumpkin pies are really made.
