Hectic Holidays

Tday Dinner

This week is Thanksgiving here in the US.  My boys are out of school for the week and it is family time. Too often these weeks for school holidays are hectic and hazardous to our relationships.  So this week I am going a bit quiet on the internet in order to enjoy the time with my family and friends, plus all the accompanying visits.

I’ll still be crocheting when we are all sitting around visiting, and there might be the occasional tweet to update. But I won’t be spending much time on Facebook, Ravelry or even my blog.

I have so much to be Thankful this year. Not the least I am thankful for all those in our community and further afield that have helped out as all those affected by the September floods here in Colorado work to get back to some sort of “normal”. In particular our amazing volunteer firefighters who sprang into action in the midst of the crisis and got so many to safe shelter.

I am thankful that my house was untouched by the devastation, though our lives have been impacted by the aftermath.  I’m so glad that so few in our community were loss, though the losses suffered will be a permanent part of all our lives forward.

I am thankful for all the friends that have reached out during the past 2 months, and all the wonderful friends that are always in my life. Not sure how I have been so fortunate to have so many in my heart and life, but they are everyday blessings that make my life richer.

I hope you all have a wonderful week, and in particular some lovely time spent with your family and friends during the holiday. I’ll be back later next week. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving ! It’s been quite the ride this year, but we’re all surviving, and there is so much to be thankful for (especially good, old friends who know us well!).

    All my love to the boys and hope we can visit more soon – Mel
