We leave for San Francisco in the morning, I'm not packed, I have a class tonight and an appointment in 15 minutes. So this is a shortie. I'm so excited to see our kids and, as usual, nervous in advance. Last year I wrote a post called "I Don't Want To Be a Turkey on Thanksgiving." Sort of the same feelings this year; being considerate of adult kids and their autonomy NOT from things you might do on purpose - those I can control. It's the stuff that can happen by accident and end up being an issue that I always worry about.
If there's anything I'm thankful for it's the gift of these two young men who have grown into such fine people. Even from all the way across the country, they bless my days. Makes Thanksgiving mean a whole lot.
