Thanksgiving was wonderful. My turkey was golden and delicious. Getting together with my family was so much fun. We ate, played outside, ate, and played Farkle. What a day. I hated it to end. I missed my daughter, who hasn’t spoken to me since August, but I heard she went to a friend’s house for the day. I wish her well. One highlight of the day was getting a note from my 16-year-old granddaughter. She said how thankful she is for me. I know that she was fulfilling a school writing assignment, but wow it was awesome! Two pages worth of telling me how cool I am. I can live with that. It’s so rewarding to see her talented, authentic writing skills. My thanks go out to her teacher. Thank you notes are powerful. I think I will go write some.
