The day before I was to leave for San Diego, I woke up a very sick gal. I have no idea what sort of bug attacked me but it created a pretty violent day for me. Based on what was going on with me physically I called my family and said it didn't look like I would make it to Thanksgiving dinner. Naturally, they were worried and told me not to even try to make the 400 miles drive. That night I slept well and in the morning awoke feeling quite good. I decided I didn't want to sit home and have a "pity party" being all alone on Thanksgiving Day so I pulled myself together and hit the road. 6 hours later I arrived before the turkey was done. In fact, I had time for a nap before we all sat down to celebrate the Holiday. As usual, the food was wonderful. I tried little bits of everything but my appetite was not very robust. What I did enjoy was our gathering of family and friends and the blessing of being together. I only stayed a couple days and made the trip home with an overnight stop in Yuma. It was probably not the wisest choice for me physically but life is short and I don't want to miss a thing! The picture is of our gathering at the Thanksgiving table.
