i think my 7 yo daughter summed up this thanksgiving better than anyone, so i'm going to allow her to write my post today;
She wrote; 'i am happy. i love thanksgiving. even though i had two grandmas die in past week, we are still going to have a lot of people at our house. i love thanksgiving. even if you can't hear, even if you can't see, you can still be thankful. i am happy. i love thanksgiving. i am thankful for my family.'
That's a summary of what she wrote in her diary today, and i had her permission to write that here.
