Don't Worry, Be Thankful

It is almost Thanksgiving, but I am preoccupied with thoughts of Savannah leaving for New York today. I have one million things to do, yet I am sitting here in my pajamas updating my neglected blog. I am so excited for Savannah. What an amazing opportunity to play at Carnegie Hall--not to mention just experiencing New York City. My battle for the day is to try to focus on the excitement and not my nervousness. She will be fine, right!? Right. Of course she will. Savannah is a good and cautious girl and I know she will keep herself safe. I think that Eric better take her to the airport, though, so she isn't embarrassed when I turn into a blubbering mess.

I just want to publicly thank all those who have helped Savannah in so many ways--you know who you are!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I don't know if it's great that we have to actually designate a holiday to being grateful or if' it's a little sad. Either way it's easier to focus on being grateful after eating pie!

How exciting!!! She will be just fine mama!! :) We just took our whole family there---carey and her family met us along with my parents--I was surprised just how safe it really was!! If we were able to manage 9 children all under the age of 15--on and off subways, etc...she will be So good!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!! I am so Thankful for our friendship--you have always been such a great friend Jen--Love you!!!

Congrats for Savannah!

Hey your link to your advent story didn't get included in your comment... Send it to me again.

Hope you're having a great Christmas season.

We really do need to get together on one of your visits north.

That is sooo exciting. I am so happy that Savannah had that opportunity. She will remember that all of her life and be able to brag about it forever. Don't you wish you could've gone to hear it? I loved New York for the 2 days I was there. I wanted to see so much more.
