Sharing thanks for an early mothers day!

My family has a weird tradition of celebrating holidays early. For our family, the celebration is being together so we decided to gather a week early so my niece Chelsea could join the fun since she will be returning to take a summer college course. Half of us live on Long Island and the other half lives in New Jersey. This Sunday my sister-in-law Ginny was kind to host this wonderful early Mother's Day gathering. Here are my thanks!
- So thankful for Ginny, who hosted a delicious Mother's Day feast. I loved the BBQ steak, ribs, grilled vegetables and beautifully decorated chocolate cupcakes. It was great to see my nieces and nephews and my parents.
- So thankful for having a wonderful MOM! She is a fireball of creative energy! I hope I am as active as she as in my 70s.
- I am thankful to the traffic gods! We hit no traffic on the George Washington Bridge in either direction on our trip to New Jersey. I drive is always more pleasant when you are not stuck in hours of traffic.
- I am thankful for my daughter Liz's courage to return to school today. Also a special thanks to the staff at her high school who made her first day back a good and comfortable experience.
