Thanksgiving is a time for me to pause and consider all the many things that I am thankful for.

Of course, I’m thankful for my family.  I am lucky to live in this wonderful town of Chester. I am so very grateful for my readers. And I am so very very lucky to have friends and family and other folks who have supported me in my battle with my health.

Throughout my journey I have met office personnel, visiting nurses and other medical people. They are just the very best people in the world. These folks are so patient as they sit on the floor and tend to and wrap the wound on my leg. I’m so grateful for their patience and kindness.

The help from the folks around town has also been amazing. Thank you all so very much for your love and kindness.
