Happy Thanksgiving

My grandparents on my dad's side have been at a nursing home for a few years now. Last Thursday, they had a family dinner to celebrate Thanksgiving with all the patients and their families. H and I went to have dinner with them since we're going to be doing today's festivities with our moms. Grandma is doing pretty good- a few health problems, but she's still sharp as a tack. Grandpa isn't doing so well- both physically and mentally. Having somebody to cook him 3 meals a day and provide several snack and dessert with each meal hasn't been helping his waistline, which is probably exacerbating his other health issues. He is showing signs of early dementia and fairly moderate memory issues, which tend to drive my grandmother crazy.

It was great to spend time with them & I'm lucky they are so close to me. They were a big part of my childhood & I'm thankful to be able to help them out after all they did for me as a kid. Today, family is the thing I am most grateful to have in my life. My husband is a wonderful man and I love our little family of 2 entertaining dogs. Our parents have been amazing and we love them so much and are so thankful they are still such a big part of our lives.

I want to wish everybody a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope that you have many blessings to count today!

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We're hosting again this year, but luckily somebody else is doing the heavy cooking today.
