We don’t do Thanksgiving here in Ireland, but I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all my friends in the United States, both ‘real’ and online, a lovely day and to give thanks for having all of you in my life.
In Chicago are friends who swam with me here in Ireland many moons ago. We’ve not seen each other for many years (way too many to admit to) but have renewed contact via this blog on Facebook.
In Boston is a dear friend from my nursing days. We trained together, studied together and qualified together. She was by my side during some of the most difficult days in my life and flew home years later to be my only bridesmaid on a much happier day.
And all over the United States are too many followers of this blog to mention. So many of you are regular readers and contributors. You too have been with me during some very hard days, but we’ve enjoyed many laughs together also.
A very special mention must also go to my two blogging pals Colleen, from The Chatter Blog and Beth from I didn’t have my glasses on who actually made trips to Ireland during which I met them personally. Neither turned out to be a mass murderer and it was such fun to meet you both.
Whatever you are doing today, I hope you enjoy it and thank you all for whatever part you have played in my life, in person or online.

Thank you Tric. You were well worth flying to Ireland and staying there two weeks just so I could meet you. I would do it again. 😉
I’d love to have you here, anytime.

What a great afternoon we had.
Thank you, Tric!!! It was a lovely day. I must say, I’m jealous that you’ve met the love Beth! One day I’d love to cross the pond and meet you myself!
Thank you for the good wishes. How kind of you.
