That you are following up on the position you took with such enthusiasm.

That I got to meet you and see first hand that your beauty and friendship is as real in person as it is online.

you're awesome :)

What a wonderful post, Liz! And it sums up everything that is really good about Thanksgiving - taking the time to stop, think and find things in our lives to be thankful for. Sometimes we forget to do that.

Are you guys cooking up a storm for the weekend? I still remember my one and only Thanksgiving celebrated at Chez Ek. Lambi also has fond memories of "helping" Anders carve the turkey :)

Have a wonderful time. And I' very thankful that I have an awesome friend like you.

We are, indeed! Turkeys are thawing in the fridge and the shopping list is growing :) You're on my thankful for list, Marie. I'm so glad we're friends!

Beautiful list. Makes me think of all the things I'm thankful for, too.

I am thankful for having the privelege of reading your posts like this despite my very sporadic postings....

This is beautiful, and reminds me of how I really should treasure my online circle of friends and nurture it more.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Dawn! I hope Max is managing okay and that you guys are less freaked out than you were earlier. :)

Very well said! I've had the privilege of reading Liz's Journal for several years, seeing pics of Martin and Karin as they grow up, hearing the about "The Adventures of Lizardek and Kin" (TM)... LOL

I'm thankful that I have had the chance to get to know you even a bit, Liz, though we've never met. Your writing is enjoyable, often catches me in a certain way, and generally gets me thinking. I'm glad that I bumped into you through meeting min mor and being introduced on LJ to some of her friends. Liz and family are on our list of folks we'd like to meet when we visit Sweden.

Stay warm and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! :)

Definitely thankful for posters like you who show us how to balance a professional life with family and still finding time for friends, hobbies, and silliness. :-D

Hands down, you're my favorite Lizard Friend. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Ally! :)

hugs!!

And oh, how grateful I am for YOU, Ms. Lizardek!

I did mention The Tipping Point some time ago-- and yet, I was late to the party on that one, too.

bisous, bp
