First, I would like to express my appreciation for all of the kind and supportive comments I have recently received. I would also like to share that Barry and I had a wonderful evening on Saturday (even though we had the same waitress). There is a lovely story to be told, but due to family issues with respect to elderly parents and our plans to travel for Thanksgiving, I am not going to have time to appropriately share details this week.
I also want to express my appreciation for the very kind emails I have received during the past week, to which I haven't had chance to respond. I feel very guilty about that. Please forgive me. I will do my best to catch up when we return.
Happy Thanksgiving to all ... I hope you each have a joyous holiday during which you can feel thankgiving for a wonderful life.
