Event Description

For some, this will be your first Thanksgiving without your loved one ... for others of us, we've done this before but it still isn't easy.  Will you be joining friends or family for a big dinner? Have you decided to create a new tradition for Thanksgiving?  Are you spending the day alone?

If the day is a hard one for you, know someone will be here in the chat room to lend a listening ear, to share experiences, to hold your hand, and maybe even to share some smiles, too. 

If you'd like to sign up to commit to being that "someone" in the chat room for an hour or so on Thanksgiving, please leave a comment with the time you'd like and I'll add you to the list (please include your time zone).
