To all my regular readers... And I guess I'll include those who suffer from irregularity as well... I wish you each a very happy day of giving thanks.

If you spend the day with family members and loved ones, you are all the more blessed. But even if you happen to be alone, you still have a lot to be thankful and grateful for.

If, like me, you acknowledge God, tell Him, "Thank you."

If you don't, tell someone you love, "Thank you."

On this uniquely American holiday, even if you live in South Africa, call someone special (Mum or Dad would be fine, or anyone you think of) who has made a difference in your life and tell them, "Thank you."

You'll BOTH feel good. And that's a good thing.

I'm always remined on this holiday of the child who asked his father, "Dad, what do they call those Army machines that run on treads and have a big gun sticking out the front?"

His father replied, "Tanks, son."

His son smiled and said, "You're welcome."

Now, about your irregularity...

A wonderful post, and thanks for the wishes. Enjoy your holiday, as well. (A request or hope, not a command. I'm not *that* bossy.)

This was my first year without Turkey and all the fixins. My husband doesn't eat turkey. We had his traditional lasagna. This was also the first year that I didn't go anywhere or have anybody over and I am thankful for that! Well, my mom came over, but lately she's been very low maintenance. We watched movies and lounged on the couch. It was great! We DID NOT shop today - and I doubt we will shop at all for presents this year. I'm really over the outrageous spending. I much prefer to give little gifts all throughout the year - whenever the mood arises or I go somewhere fun and find neat things that I must share. It's so much more natural that way instead of all this holiday nonsense.
Thanks again for a good topic.
