a Lynne's


Wednesday, November 24, 2004

Last night I sent a Thanksgiving email (see below) to friends and family that live far away. I also sent this message to people that I hardly ever see, because for one reason or another they are still in my life and/or thoughts.

Dear Family and Friends -
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year for us to really sit back & be Thankful. Thankful for that beautiful new child, your new love, weight loss, friendship, a puppy, a paycheck, darts, dark chocolate, the strength & love of family...
I hope you all have a wonderful day! I am thankful you are in my life.
Much Love, Lynne

Missing from that note is what I am thankful for.
