I have a lot to be thankful for.  We just celebrated Thanksgiving, but I'm not done - the gratitude continues, and looking through my photos makes me very happy and reminds me of the wonderful people in my life.

When last I wrote, I was getting ready for the big storm.

It really was a big storm.  We were out of electric for about a week.  And that was NOTHING compared to what so many other people went through.  Many people have lost their houses and streets and utilities all at the same time, so even rebuilding is hard.  Sandy is one for the history books.  I'm so grateful that our house and our family was spared.

Then, my nephew graduated from the Marine Corps, and I'm grateful that he did so well.

And then, of course, we had Thanksgiving in our cabin, and I'm grateful that my whole family was able to gather together and enjoy the weekend, with plenty of food to eat, and electric at the cabin - and now even a toilet that flushes!  One more step forward!
