Yahooooo!

I am happy, very happy, for a couple of reasons! To begin with it's Thanksgiving tomorrow! And for the first time in many years we are invited over for Thanksgiving - not just one but two in a row - yes, both Thursday and Friday! Why am I so excited about that?!

Well, Thanksgiving is one feast we don't prefer to be alone. For many years we have been the host and we enjoyed doing that. However, last year since Israel's Mom suddenly passed away we skipped any and all celebrations but would have definitely preferred some company. Guess what? No one even bothered to call and see how we were faring or what we were doing for Christmas or New year, let alone Thanksgiving!

This broke my heart - actually 'shattered' might be a better word - to million pieces... I was crying at work, homesick, wanted to forever leave America and return to Amma & Co, even wrote a few sad poems in those lines... Israel was helpless and even I was taken aback by my own emotions!

Letting bygones be bygones, here we are at Thanksgiving 2011 with tons of things to be thankful for, plenty of company to cherish and wonderful home cooked meals to enjoy! What more can one ask for?

So, here's wishing all my friends, dear and near ones, those in the States and even those abroad, a hearty Thanksgiving along with many thanks! Yahooooo!!

Usually we are invited to several parties on Thanksgiving Thursday and then on Saturday & Sunday. But this time one regular family did not invite us (probably because we never reciprocated) and two of our friends are out of town.

So we did not get any invite for Thursday.

But my mother-in-law is here and my brother-in-law and family is arriving in a couple of hours. So we will have house full at home.

We got invited on Sunday for a party...

So it is kind of busy in any case.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the wishes .
Human beings, I do not know how miserable and intense animals can be ( dogs of course are an exception),when deprived of expectations, and when longings go wrong.

Oh just remembered there is one beast that does not appreciate Thanks giving Day- The Turkey!
