Gratitude Journal - November 23

Billy finally made it.  He drove from Iowa and it was a tough trip.  He is on a schedule where he works until 1:00 am or later, so doesn't sleep well at night.  It made it hard to get an early start, so fortunately he decided to make it a two day trip.  (I always make it two days - 13+ hours is just too much for one day.)  Add to that, the Thanksgiving traffic and it made for a long trip.  He even had the stop and go stuff for over an hour - probably due to an accident that was gone by the time he came by.  Going through Nashville, you don't have a lot of options to get off and try another route!  Anyway, he arrived and all is well.  It is good to see him.  He was last here to visit last June.  I was up to his place in August.  We got the turkey stuffed and ready to stick in the oven early in the morning.  He bought supplies to make an apple pie in the morning.  I am very grateful that he arrived safely and look forward to these few days.  Now we can bring on Thanksgiving!
