I was sitting here thinking.........which as you know is not always a good thing........about Thanksgiving. I remember when i was a small child the meaning that Thanksgiving had for me was that I got to help my mom make 20+ different pies, cakes, cookies........and that was just in the few days prior to it. On the morning of Thanksgiving......she would put a huge turkey in the wood cook stove, and into the oven would go ham, beef, and venison. A huge kettle of potatoes would be peeled and she would continue to cook for hours to make sure all the fixings were ready to eat by 2p. About noon the family, neighbors, friends, (and sometimes the lonely hitchhiker her and dad had picked up on the road the day before) would start to arrive. Our house was not huge but we packed ourselves in there and in the corner of the living room would be an extra table set up that we as children would play board games on and later that would be our place to eat. Usually there were so many of us kids that the younger ones would play on one end whilst the teenagers would hang out on the other end playing games that were more suitable for that age..

The men would be sitting around in the living room talking about what all was going on in the neighborhood or family. At some point the men and kids would head down to the barn so dad could show off a new horse he bought or the one we had just broke out or whatever there was to discuss. If there was snow on the ground we would have snowball fights or go sliding. Well the teenagers usually ended up in the hay mow and I can only imagine what was going on up there.........I never knew.........i wasn't allowed up there..........

When it was time to eat Mom and the ladies would have all the food sit out buffet style and plates were made for the little ones and than the men would take their plates into the living room to eat whilst the women sit down at the kitchen table. Probably the first time any of them had had a break that day, I know for Mom it was.

As years went by and family spread out more, we moved to town.......holidays started to change. Maybe that's the way its suppose to be. But for me it was just a holiday and didn't hold much meaning. Its only been the last 10 years that I have come to spend time each Thanksgiving to make a list of things I am really thankful for.

Maybe its because as we get older we stop taking things for granted. You would think that after spending the last 4 years being sick I wouldn't find anything to be grateful for but funny thing is............I find more things to be grateful for now than I probably did before.

As i was making my list tonight one of the first things I wrote on my list was friends. I am fortunate to have the friends I do. And I started to think about the friends I met here. Friends that some of them I stay in contact with still to this day. Who would have thought when I signed up here I would meet and come to care for the many ppl that I do.

So i just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Even if we don't talk regularly and we may not even think of each other that often I want to thank you. You guys were there for me at some of the lowest times of my life..........you cheered me on when I needed it and you gave me comfort when I needed a friend. We may not always have gotten a long............and for some we still don't speak..........and that's Ok...........thank you anyway for being here at AMD. I learned a lot about the ppl here...........and I learned the most about myself...........and you all have helped me in some way and I can never thank you enough.


So I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful and I hope that all you hope for in life is coming your way.
