All in a Word
T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.

My Thankful Day 20 post for Brookside Cottage's "30 Days of Giving Thanks" is gratitude for my fur boy, Noah, my almost 15 year old kitty! He's a sweet, sweet old boy. Noah follows me around all day and he gives me something to baby now that my children are adults!
