Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends, family and faithful readers of my blog.  I get all choked up when I start to think of things I am thankful for in my life.  The challenges that are presented to me on a daily basis due to my complications of Crohn’s disease have made me view the world in a different manner.

I am thankful for the obvious things like a roof over my head, plenty to eat, and some wonderful people in my life.  You probably don’t know how grateful I am for the love and support I have received over this blog.  The food community has welcomed me with open arms (and mouths).

Writing about food has given me a new purpose in life and that fills my heart.  So as I sit down to my dinner at my in-laws (Thanks Emom for being such a good sport with all my teasing this month) this afternoon, I will take a moment to think of all of you who have given this Foodie and extra helping of gratefulness!
