I hardly know what to say…

November 27, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. And today I am most thankful that number one hubby is here safe and sound on American soil. We enjoyed Cirque De Soleil last night with a new appreciation for the safety of the good old USA. It was a nice distraction – we enjoyed a very slow dinner without watching the news. We disappeared in to the laughter of the crowds. It was magical and it took us completely away from our worries.

Right now our children are blissfully unaware of what happened yesterday in India. We are enjoying cooking with them and are looking forward to having our family here to hold hands and say a Thanksgiving blessing before dinner. We are especially grateful that number one hubby’s brother will be joining us after serving in Iraq for 15 long months. We are more appreciative of that service now than ever.

We are thankful for your prayers and well wishes. And, we are going to enjoy the luxury of putting the madness of yesterday to the side to bask in the best America has to offer – family, too much food, football, and the peace and quiet of our little street.

Surely, we have decisions to make – but thankfully, they can wait until tomorrow.

    I can’t believe I have two friends who have husbands were in India (the other was actually in Mumbia) the day before the massacre. On the one hand it’s amazing that we can travel to such places, and on the other it’s so scary what’s happening. I’m saying a prayer for you guys – you have some big decisions to make.

    I don’t even know you, Ellen, except through the blogosphere, and you and your family were the first thing I thought about when I saw the breaking news. So glad hubby was home, and I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving with his brother and the rest of your family.
