This is not funny, more thought provoking. Most Thanksgivings I spend alone as kids are grown and live far away. The youngest will be in Afghanistan this year. He is out of the military now but the only good paying job he can find is with the war contractors so he is back in the middle east yet again. My hubby works this Thanksgiving but at least it is time and a half. The kind of trucking that he does, doesn't pay overtime pay it is all straight time so this time and a half will help us out a lot. What are you all thankful for? Holiday pay. I am thankful that even if we can't be together we at least all are safe. I am thankful that I don't have to cook a big dinner unless I want to. I usually do the turkey so I can have leftovers for sandwiches. I am thankful for shelter and food. I am thankful for my Mom. At 90+ she is a real blessing to all those around her. I am thankful that my sister got a new house in a nice neighborhood and is out of the Detroit areas dangerous neighborhoods. She is so happy since moving. I am thankful that it started raining again and it looks like this winter will be more promising for rain. I am sure I could think of more if I spent more time.
