Salem, Mass (Witch City) resident with deep southern roots! Love New England - let it snow! Still making up for all those years south! I'm a widow attempting to make merry but it is very hard. This is my way to vent, share, and talk about my path to finding happiness again. September 2006 I became a widow. My road out of the abyss of grief, guilt, and anger hasn't been easy but I'm clawing my way to something better. Seeing rays of hope and joy. Feel free to comment, share words of wisdom, or just read about my fairly mundane life. Slainte!

I Swear I thought turkeys could fly!

Happy Thanksgiving!  Now does anyone remember where the title quote came from?  A hilarious Thanksgiving edition of WKRP in Cincinnatti!  It still makes me laugh! Just imagine turkeys dive bombing from a helicopter!  Well I'm shortly going to give in to the turkey sleeping disorder so I thought I'd at least post something about Thanksgiving.

We are very lucky to have this Holiday - only the US and Canada do! So even though I am spending today by myself, I know I'm not truly alone.  There is so much to be thankful for.  A FB friend posted each day of November what she was thankful for.  I like that.  We should do it every day of the year.  I'm thankful for my friends and family, for health (despite my current sinus infection I am overall healthy), for living in this beautifl part of the country, for having a job that I really love, for an income that allows me to enjoy the things I enjoy most in life - travel, reading, movies, good music (U2!), and many others.  Most of all I am thankful for my friends and family.  This is a small group and they are scattered around the world but they are so dear to me.  Without them I would have become a lost soul many times over the years.

I was going to write something grandiose but have decided to keep it simple.  What with the prescription meds, the turkey, and that one glass of wine, nap time is coming any minute now.

To all my friends and family - I love you.  I am so blessed to have you. 

Happy Thanksgiving all!  (Next - the Christmas list!)
