I love Thanksgiving not only for the warmth and richness but for the reminder that I wouldn't be here had the Pilgrims not come to Plymouth Colony. My roots are in the Allerton family (

This is the time of year for me to read and relish Three Young Pilgrims by Cheryl Harness, a story all about Mary, Remember, and Bartholomew Allerton.

What are you thankful for? ...

I love that I ...

Have piles and puddles of books to read

Know that I'm descended from the Allertons

Have three very unique and loving brothers

Am in the library right now instead of the hospital

Get to babysit for a marvelous and lovely child on Friday and Saturday

Am all done with appointments for the week
