Pecan Pie Ingredients

Today, I’m thankful that my youngest felt well enough to play part of the day.

My next youngest is still sick, so I’m also grateful that we were planning a quiet Thanksgiving at home with no guests this year.

I will hopefully have a chance to get back to some sewing and present making in a day or two when I expect she’ll feel better. 


What are you thankful for today?

  10. I am thankful that we managed to have a Thanksgiving dinner today—I got out of ICU yesterday, where I landed after having a heart stent placed on Tuesday. My daughter, who has never cooked a turkey before, even though she’s 53, made just about all the dinner and did a great job of it. My granddaughter made green bean casserole from fresh beans, and bought a wonderful mixed fruit pie. So we had a lovely meal and the whole family together and all I did was make the gravy!! The ICU part of it was unexpected, as my planned discharge was 10 AM yesterday but turned into 4 PM because of some middle of the night problems with a little bleeding and a big rise in blood pressure. I was sent to the ICU simply because they are better with IV drugs which were necessary to fix my blood pressure as quickly as possible. All was back to normal and they sent in about 8 different doctors to check to make sure I was well enough to go home. They all agreed I was!! Lucky for me.

Thanks for the friends we celebrated Thanksgiving with yesterday, for my children who did a great job of being “the big kids” (as my friend put it), playing with the little ones so the adults could clean up after the meal, and for our brand new great-nephew born on Thanksgiving Day to our oldest niece.
