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 (http://mayflowerhistory.com/Passengers/IsaacAllerton.php).
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
