The garland Millie Bug and I made. Very into those things.

Lovely and yet bittersweet. There's much to be thankful for -- family, friends, good health. God answered our prayers and Grandma Vicky was released from the hospital the day before Thanksgiving. This is her holiday. We wanted it to be special for her because of all the Thanksgivings before that she stayed up till 4 in the morning making sure the turkey, dressing and candied yams were special just for us. She slept most of the day, but she did wake once coughing. I asked her if she wanted water. She said no, she wanted candied yams. And I complied. Yes, there is much to be thankful for.
