I am getting off the subject of Survivor just for today so I can tell you all Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, I am a day early but wanted to share some thoughts about this wonderful holiday with all of you.  I feel especially blessed this year.  My family is healthy and happy.  What more could I ask for?  In the last couple of months, I had to watch two separate families bury their children.  One was a precious two year old boy and the other a beautiful 19 year old girl.  I can’t even begin to comprehend how they are going to get through tomorrow and the next month.  I hope you all consider as you are celebrating with family and friends just how short life is and we are not guaranteed the next minute much less the next year.  Those we are with this year may not be around for the next so take it all in and enjoy the moments that make up Thanksgiving.  We all come from different backgrounds and different religious beliefs and maybe no religion at all but we can all come together and give thanks for all the little and big blessings in our life.  Hold your loved ones tighter tomorrow and listen to the stories the older generation has to tell about the holidays they celebrated when they were younger.  Find someone to share your own stories with and for those that have kids, give them a break tomorrow.  Let them run wild and free and eat as much sweets as they want.  It is only one day, you can get them back on track Friday.  :)  Let us all remember Fedup with the loss of her husband and what a difficult day this will be for her.  We miss you girl!  Check in with us sometime.

I will get off my ranting now and you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and eat as much food as you want!  You can diet another day.
