life is good...Thanksgiving was great. Sister and Brother were here at my house. A little quieter than usual because three girls were missing - my sisters daughters are away at school and REI girl is still adventuring...she comments:
Life here is good. The past few days have been sad though. I can't believe that I am leaving in a week and a half. The time has gone by too quickly. I feel that if I could have stayed longer, I would make a bigger impact on these children's lives. The kids that I lived with are amazing. Each one is such a wonderful gift to this world. Their spirit, imagination and sense of adventure are indescribable. They come from such horrible beginnings, but they have started to overcome their hardships and are such beautiful children. I will miss them more then I can describe."
She will be home in 10 days! It seems like she just left yesterday!
College girl was home for Thanksgiving week - what a delight to have her around! We had lots of fun and now all is quiet on the home front for a few days anyway.
I have been knitting on those last minute Christmas gifts - really not last minute - just those things that I put off for too long. So am now scrambling to get them finished (oh yeah - and started!)
Work will be quiet this week also as the boss is traveling - some business some pleasure - whatever - it means I can get caught up on lots of things.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is enjoying the Holiday season!!

Sounds like a wonderful Holiday gathering. I enjoyed a bunch of my grandchildren around me as a matter of fact. It was wonderful (& sad at the same time) ... you know what I mean.
