Thanksgiving



A quick note of Thanksgiving. Today, I am thankful that we do not have to move out of my parent's home like we thought we were going to have to last week. The buyers rescinded their offer, and it looks like we will be able to stay here until at least next spring. I am very thankful that we don't have to box things up and try to find somewhere to live that we can't afford. I am very thankful for wonderful, caring friends and family. I'm thankful for life, and for experience, and for relationships. Lastly, I'm thankful for each moment that I am able to feel love coming from a source divine both for myself and for others. Happy Thanksgiving!

Such good new! (for you, I guess not so much for your parents) But that is such a relief that you don't have to move again.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

I wish I would have looked at your blog sooner and was able to write some words of sympathy, if I could think of any for those circumstances. But all I can say now is YEPPIE! I'm glad your able to stay in your parents. And since your in Sandy if you ever have time we should get together, I just live right over the point of the mountain from you. So let me know if your interested. I bet the kids would have a lot of fun.

Jenny, I'm seriously SO happy for you that you get to stay in your parents' place. Wow. I was so sad for you and your crazy situation. I'm so relieved things are working out.

PS - You're nice to compliment me on my clothes - I'm 100% super flattered. I'm not kidding when I say I'm the world's cheapest shopper. The only places I really shop are: Ross (sounds a little gross, but it's maybe my favorite store for clothes), Gadzooks/Forever 21 (same store, just different names), TJ Maxx, Target. I rarely buy anything that't full price, so I appreciate that you still think my clothes are somehow cute. Thanks for the compliment!
