My Favorite Time of Year!!!

It is that time of year again that I just love!
The older I get, I believe the more I love it!
Thinking back throughout my life, 
I can honestly say that this has always been 
my favorite holiday!

Trying to understand why and pondering on this 
has brought several ideas to mind....
* 1 of the only times I see my Iowa family during the year
* it has been a consistent happening in my ever changing life
(really, I can count on both hands the # of times I haven't been in Iowa for Thanksgiving!)
*  it is a time of happiness, no stress, no drama... happiness
* I love my Iowa family for so many different reasons
to name a few...
no drama
unconditional love
even though we only see each other once a year,
feels like we see each other daily
laughter! like crying & peeing your pants laughter!!!
playing card games
I just love the Furnes!!!

We leave tomorrow and I can hardly stand it!
I'm so ready!!!!
We will miss a few aunts and uncles this year, 
but there will still be a huge clan of Furnes gathered 
on Thursday!

I hope everyone (the 2 who read this blog)
has a fabulous, memory making Thanksgiving too!
