I really, really love my sister-in-law for hosting and for extending her family to include Gary's sons and their families. I love having so many people I cherish in one place. So Sarah asked us all to mention the first thing that came to mind that we were all Thankful for. I struggled with this, because my mind is a tricky thing, and the first thing and the last thing all jumble a lot.
Nanette and Will - Thanks for raising such beautiful, wonderful daughters and I love you guys. It's really nice to get together as often as we do, and I feel that I've (and my children) are growing very close to you. We have a truly interesting situation, and I love it so much.
Jennifer and Zach and David- I love you more than I can ever say. You know this. You are my sweets and it's so awesome to have you around. David - you're always loved and missed my boy.
Sarah - Thanks for an awesome Thanksgiving and for making me the most proud aunt EVER. You have become one of my best friends and I love you so much.
Roy - Ah...what can i say..I love you, bro. That beer was the best I think I've ever tasted, you beat Blue Moon for me.
Gary - You're the love of my life, and I'm always so so Thankful to have you. You ARE my Neo.
Tommy and beautiful babies - I am so totally thankful to have such an accepting family, I love you and hope all the happiness for you forever. I'll always be around for you, like you've been for me. Taylor and Anna - Just Jess loves you very much. Both of you are so beautiful and special and your parents are totally lucky to have you.
Katie - You're a gorgeous and determined girl, and a wonderful aunt and sister. I'm very Thankful to have you in my life and also to have you be the sister that Sarah loves so much.
Mom - Hmmm. You are phenomenal, gorgeous and wonderful. I'm so glad you were blessed with me (joke), nah I'm so glad that I have you as a Mom. I remember when I was younger and my friends would say, I wish your Mom was mine, and I remember thinking "I've never wanted any other mom..that's weird."
Dad - You're the reason for my career. You're the reason for my personality and I love you as much as always, I also miss you very much and I love you always.
Donna and kids - I'm Thankful to have another extension. I'm thankful that Zach has found a best friend in you and that I have some great step-siblings and I hope that Ashley gets better really soon.
JD - I'm addressing you because I know you read this - I love you family as though it were truly my own. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and I hope to get together with you all soon.
Jami - You are one of my best friends and I cherish you dearly. We need to do something. Thanks for being there for me always. :)
Nikki - Missed you at the dinner - love you and the girls - happy to see you soon. I'm happy to have you all in my life and I'm thankful that you and I have gotten to the understandings that we have. Love you babe. Your girls are wonderful and gorgeous and I'm very thankful for them too...Kenny too I guess.
Okay this is ridiculous - I thought I'd be able to do this, but I am very thankful for so many things.
My IWU cohort - I'm thankful for most of them..really getting close to a few.
My staff - They are the best. I couldn't ask for a better team.
My co-workers - It's nice to be in the place we are all together. I'm very glad to be a part of that team.
Collin - I'm glad my baby finds happiness with you.
Amber - I am Thankful to have gotten to know you so well. Thanks for being good for David.
Brian/Kelly-Thanks for having such wonderful children.
Kelly - Thanks for letting the kids continue to see me. I love you..even though I know that's hard to believe.
Grandpa - Love you..Glad you're still here with me.
