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!
