Yay! Now enjoy the visit and as menumaker wrote, "Breathe."

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Cat, my heart is just filled with love for you. You are the kind of person every parent hopes their child will become. You understand the meaning of the words, "giving thanks." You understand the meaning of "Honor thy mother and father." You understand the meaning of being humble. But most of all you understand the true meaning of "family." And if you don't have a family that loves you and accepts you for who you are, then you are definitely deprived of some of life's joys. This is certainly is not you and your family.

Your parents are so fortunate to have a daughter like you. And they know this too. And for this reason they too are thankful. Like you, they too know what the word "family" means. You have brought so much joy into their lives.

So tomorrow when you sit down to your wonderful dinner, you can do as most American families do. Starting with the head of the household while holding hands, each person states what they are thankful for.

Cat, relax and enjoy the stay with your parents. You are doing a wonderful job.

We hate to say we told you so, but we told you so Of course they're proud of you, and so are we. Happy Thanksgiving!
