Thaw T Full Things

Dear Friends, and Family,

I'm genuinely thankful for each one of you. I started my blog a little over 7 months ago, and I'm amazed at how much has happened in such a small measure of time. I've learned blogging is way more fun and educational than TV. Far more dramatic than soap operas, and far funnier than sitcoms. I had no idea such a wonderful world existed until I met all of you. Thank you for opening my eyes to such a wonderful world at my fingertips. I'm thankful, and grateful, for each one of you.

  • Be safe.
  • Hug your family and your friends.
  • Feed your faces, and watch some football.
  • Tell someone you are thankful to have them in your life.
  • Wear some comfy cloths on Thursday.
  • If the pie crust gets too burnt... it's not the end of the world.
  • Take a moment to remember how fortunate you are to be alive.
  • Pull out the Christmas lights, and trim the tree.
  • Be respectful others who do not celebrate the same holidays in the same way you do.
  • If you've lost your gusto for the holidays, try to see it through the eyes of a child. Borrow one if you don't have one, and make some precious memories together.
  • Take a nap if you want to on Thursday. Or take two.
  • Don't feel guilty if you are not up to fighting the masses on Black Friday unless you really enjoy it.
  • Be thankful you can shop without ever leaving the comforts of your home.
  • Make something homemade to give this season.
  • Say yes to whipped cream. YES, yes, Yes!
  • Say thank you when the left turn lane is long, and moving slow. It could be a blessing disguised as a delay.
  • Send all your unwanted fruitcakes to me. I actually love them.
  • Take your unused coats to a homeless shelter or church.
  • This is one way the pilgrims used pumpkins. BIG YUM
  • Be thankful you were not the person who received the call at the Butterball Turkey Hotline from a woman wondering if it was OK to bathe her kids at the same time in the tub with the turkey thawing... true story.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone


  1. Two more things we have in common: I love fruitcake! And I love hearing those stories from the Butterball Turkey hotline!

    Oh, I wish I could share your turkey!

  2. My DiL wants to go out for barbecue ribs tomorrow. She is from Thailand and I for one am of a mind to give her what she wishes. I wonder if the Korean owned rib shop will have some pumpkin pie?

  3. Happy time to chat, gotta' shower with my turkey!

  4. YES, yes, yes! Pass the Whip Cream!

    Thanks for a lovely and thoughtful post Lily. It's been a pleasure getting to know you.

    Happy Thanksgiving!


  5. Lovely post. Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Oh Lily, you summed up the holiday so well. My hubby and I also love fruitcake.

    I guess the mom didn't want to waste water so might as well thaw and bathe at the same time!!

    Have a super-cool, fun and wonderful Happy Thanksgiving.


  7. I am thankful for finding you here (thanks to Walking Man).
    You are a constant and beautiful inspiration.

    Have a most wonderful Thanksgiving!

  8. As there is not Thanksgiving celebration over here in Greece, I might offer you some pie with Feta cheese instead, with some dry red wine which grows not far from here.

    A wonderful Thanksgiving time for you all.

  9. Wonderful Blog.....if you were here I would give you a big hug. We all struggle and thank you for being so open and honest about it. Peace and Love to you! Marnie

  10. Happy Thanksgiving to you too!!! Okay, so I'm a coupla days late... but better late than never, right.

  11. LOL that was a good one. Very clever! Hope you enjoyed the holiday *hugs*
