They also reflected on just what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving:

  • Life!
  • Being Alive!
  • My good friend of many years who is in the hospital.
  • 3 very good kids.
  • My father who turned a little girl into a baseball pitcher.
  • Turkey and Pumpkin Pie.
  • My mother who, even with an artificial arm…still baked knish!
  • Being invited to come to spend the day with this group of friends.
  • The milkman…who delivered (every day!) milk and seltzer water to our house.

Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving!
