Sorry that I haven’t written in a while. My blog took a backseat to my health, but I’m happy to report that I am doing much better. Just wanted to wish any of you reading this a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope that you are spending it with family, friends, and loved ones. My family went to Nevada to visit my daughter (she turned 29 yesterday) and to spend time celebrating her birthday. I couldn’t make the trip. I can’t travel more than one hour in a car without significant pain. It’s okay. I haven’t celebrated Thanksgiving in so long that I can’t remember the last time I sat down to a complete meal. I couldn’t eat it all anyway due to my smaller stomach. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009 to lose weight. I am currently working on putting some of that weight back as I lost too much!! The surgery works, sometimes too good! I do give thanks to God for my family, and for another year of still being here on earth. I hope that I have many more years left, and hope to stick around for a long time. So, enjoy your day. Watch some football if that’s your thing. But do remember to give thanks, because that is what today is all about. Enjoy! The first recorded Thanksgiving dates back to 1621 in Plymouth, Mass where the feast was prompted by a good harvest. The Puritans and Pilgrims who began emigrating from England carried on the tradition to New England. We have been celebrating ever since. Just a bit of history.
