We were in a merry Thanksgiving mood and ready to take a drive to Philadelphia from Boston for a family gathering, when my daughter came down with the flu. Now that our plans have changed we have to regroup and make the best out of the situation. We of course will be home and I am o.k. with it. I will likely run out tonight, I know...insane, and pick up a few things to throw together tomorrow for us. I just hope my daughter will feel better by then, she was really looking forward to all the festivities with her family. I was thinking of things to be thankful for and...I am very thankful that we were not at a hotel somewhere and she then became sick, that would have been awful for her. I am also very thankful that she is strong and healthy and she will get through this. I am very thankful that we will be together at home where we can all be comfortable and have a quiet, simple evening (of course with the sounds of football in the background!). So, we are going to do our best to get into the Thanksgiving Spirit. I found some quotes that I found to explain it best. Hope everyone has a wonderful meal and that you are with the ones you love.
