I wanted to take the time to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in blogland. May you have the blessings of family close to you and take time to thank God for all He has given you.
We're postponing the actual day of the get-together due to a stomach virus that has been "running" (literally) through my family. We all got together last Friday night to pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child. My youngest grandson (who has tummy troubles all the time that are currently being diagnosed) apparantly had a virus. I couldn't resist kissing his precious little face (or maybe lips....yes, probably lips).
He got worse. By Sunday I was VERY sick. His dad was VERY sick. By Sunday night his brother Timothy was sick. On Monday night his Auntie Dre got it. It only lasts about 24 hours but leaves you "wiped" out (Pun intended) with no energy or appetite. Today is the first day that food really sounded good to me. So after5 days of cleaning up after 2 sick kids and a sick husband, my other daughter came down with it tonight. And did I mention that my son had it, too?
That only leaves husband, other son-in-law and oldest grandson who haven't had it. So we're going to wait a day and see what happens. So in everything I'm (trying) to give thanks. I'm thankful that my Operation Christmas Child party fell through last Friday night and that the only people who showed up were my family. Otherwise, all of my guests would now be sick for Thanksgiving.
I have SOOOO many things to be thankful for! As my son said tonight when I asked him if he minded postponing the day "It's the people, not the day"! Happy Thanksgiving to all you people who help round out my life!
