Happy Thanksgiving y'all!

I love Thanksgiving. My daughter got up this morning and was mesmerized by the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, as was I when I was her age. I remember waking up and watching the parade until my parents made me get dressed to go to either my grandmother's or one of my aunt's houses. I love this holiday. It's a time for family, which I love.

This year will be a bit different. My grandmother was recently diagnosed with dementia and that in itself has caused a bit of turmoil throughout the family. It's my hope that everyone will put aside their differences and come together for her sake, at least. She's a great lady that deserves a great holiday, and I'm so thankful to get to spend one more Thanksgiving with her.

I hope you all have a great day with your families or whoever you may be spending the day with! Be thankful, I know I am.
