A Thanksgiving thought!

by Posted On

I know I am late!

I’m working on two things for Thanksgiving; neither are right!  Yet!

But I received a picture of 4 generations of her family  from my “best friend” since the 6th grade!  Her parents have been married for 70 years!  They are both in their mid-nineties!

(we were “not asked back” to school together!)  We are 64 years old!  She has her parents?!?  Yikes!

Her parents  just had a Thanksgiving dinner with 4 generations!

Her mother asked her “who are all these people?”  My friend said, “they are all your family!”

There is a life-size portrait of her (drop dead gorgeous mother that I wondered about when twelve) in the dining room!

Her mother saw it; and said.”Why did I have that done?”

My friend says,  “Life is a hoot!”

And she also said, “No matter how senile, or complicated the members of my family are;  they are MY family!”

And THAT is my Thanksgiving thought!!

Family is just about everything!

    What a great story Penelope! Your bestie’s parents are amazing & inspire me to emulate that famous bumper sticker. ‘Avenge yourself, live long enough to be a problem to your children!!’
