The Eva Las Vegas household is on their way to Catalina to spend the Thanksgiving weekend enjoying a little rest and relaxation. There are vague plans to play tennis and hike and swim, but my guess is that drinking and napping will be the major activities.
I have so much to be thankful for... my life has been a charmed one, and even through the rough and scary patches, I have always had great support and care and love and faith... with those blessings nothing has ever seemed insurmountable. I have always known a great safety net which protects me... keeps me from having to face some aspects of life that are unjust and ugly.
This year, I give the greatest thanks for my family and their safety... I wish that everyone around the world, especially here, in America where we pride ourselves on making dreams come true, could be giving those same thanks. I want our gay citizens to give thanks with their husband or their wife. I want the parents of our soldiers to give thanks with their children at their table. I want the spouses of those overseas to look across and ask their sweeties to please pass the rolls.
I give thanks because I have hope that one day, one day soon, those wishes of mine will be a reality for many.
I am giving thanks for all of you... those of you who come back here, post after post and read me and comment or lurk, but who give me a space to share myself and allow me a glimpse into your lives.
Happy Thanksgiving, Blog-Land... may your turkey be juicy and may your hearts be full.
And of course, it is Mamarazzi Tuesday... go check out who you are thankful you are not.
