Happy Thanksgiving Friends!
For those of you that read my blog and send emails... thank you so much for letting me know I made a difference in your life. I hoped when I started this blog that I would be able to help someone on their journey with HIV and AIDS... or to help them stay HIV negative.
Gary and I went over to very good friends' house. Dale and I have been friends for over 3 years now. Patrick and I have known each other since about 1992 and he's a great guy also. I'm very fortunate to have the very special people in my life that I have. My mom always told us that if we could count our real friends on one hand that we were truly blessed... well that I've been blessed ten times over in my life and just wanted to let you know that I appreciate sharing part of your life with me.
We ate way too much... and there was enough food for 20 people even though there were only ten. I asked Victor is he was having a second shift coming over to eat. He loves to cook and makes wonderful dishes. After the first round of food finally settled (turkey, ham,two kinds of stuffing, sweet potato casserole, beans, corn casserole, squash casserole, home made biscuits and two kinds of gravy), we went back and had a choice of desserts to find us off. (cheesecake, pumpkin pie, and banana pudding) They also had some egg nog that would knock you on your butt.
Around 6pm, Gary and I headed home so we can let our four legged kids outside before they explode. It was raining before we left so they were not happy about having to go outside with the ground wet. Chipper, our blind 14 year old long haired chihuahua is so funny. He hears us come into the house and just sits on his hind legs and barks until you come pick him up. He wants us to give him some loving and then he'll settle down next to us on the couch.
Hope that all of you also had a fantastic and safe Thanksgiving. I also would like to thank those of you that emailed and left messages on the office recorder. You folks rock! Wishing all of you health, hope and happiness.
Big bear hug,
