I hadn't planned to blog while stateside, but I couldn't resist on this day, Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. America is the only country that celebrates Thanksgiving, though the sentiment and ritual could easily be universal. It is a day to acknowledge all of one's blessings and to enjoy a truly special meal with those near and dear to your heart. My life is filled with blessings innumerable, and my heart is full on this day when I will join my mom's side of the family in celebrating my grandfather's 90th birthday.
And, in the interest of being honest, it's also about the food (you know me...isn't it always about the food?).
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
