This Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for my family. I'm thankful that my dad is recovering from a serious fall last Sunday, and that I could go be with him in the hospital Monday and Tuesday and stay with my mother overnight. I'm thankful for my husband who traveled with me there and provided emotional support for me and company for my mom. I'm thankful for my siblings pulling together in this crisis and for cousins and aunts and friends who supported us in calls and visits and Facebook comments. I'm thankful for my coworkers who were supportive and covered for me while I was gone. I'm thankful for my husband's daughter and her family, with whom we'll be sharing the holiday meal today. I'm also thankful for extended family in the Chicago area opening their home to my son, newly-moved to Chicago and unable to be with his family of origin this holiday. And I'm thankful for the daughter who made the cute little turkey above.
