A Spot of Hot Chocolate

I have been trying to get a sore throat for a couple of days now, so tonight am having a bit of hot chocolate with a little brandy. Sat back tonight and watched "Tears of the Sun" with Bruce Willis. Having a husband who remembers Vietnam daily, a son leaving in February for his third tour in Iraq, and a grandson leaving in January for his first tour in Iraq... perhaps it was not the wisest thing to watch. But.. there is also something to said for the selflessness of American soldiers. They make me proud to know them.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and with all of the children out of pocket with work or other obligations this year, we will miss them and all the laughter in the house. However, spending the time with just my husband and myself will be wonderful also. There is so much to be thankful for this year, even if one of those things is the realization that some things have to work themselves out and nothing you can do will hurry that process. I hope everyone has a lovely, laughing Thanksgiving!

Thank you for you kind wishes, kiki. I do feel better this morning and hope your Thanksgiving is happening exactly as you would most like it to happen.
