Thanksgiving....not a good day to be my jeans!

Thanksgiving is fast approaching. 
I am thankful that I am not responsible for a big fancy dinner.
I am thankful Ricky is part of my life.  He is my best friend.
I am thankful Ricky has a job.
He just called and told me that he probably won't be home for Thanksgiving.  He will be home before then but he said it's lookin' like he will be back on the road by Turkey Day.
Not really that big of a deal.  We have so much to be thankful for that we can celebrate our thankfull-ness on any given day of the week.

I am thankful for my mom.
I am thankful for my brother.
I am thankful my brother has a job, too.
I am thankful for my daughter, Savana. It has been a joy watching her grow up.  Rick and I know we are not raising a child...we are raising a future adult. 
I am thankful for my friends.  You know who you are.  I laugh with you and sometimes at you.  I cry with you and sometimes I cry for you.

Even though we may have never met in person....just ask Ricky.  I talk about y'all everyday.

I am thankful for my faith.  I'm not one to preach.  I believe what I believe...you believe what you believe.  I'm cool with that.

I leave you with a quote from Johnny Carson....
      "Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday.  People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year.  And then discover once a year is way too often."
