I am so THANKFUL for each and every one of you.  Thanks to Supa for starting this site.  I would not have survived if not for everyone here.  This is my second Thanksgiving and I'm running to Epcot at Disney World with Emy and will also meet up with Judy.  This year I felt like not doing a traditional Thanksgiving of any kind.  To everyone going through their first Thanksgiving, breathe, take a second at a time and take care of yourself.    HUGS TO ALL!!!
