This is the second time my husband and I will be celebrating Thanksgiving with friends and calling it “Tweetsgiving.” It seems that this year it is a much more organized event. According to the website, “TweetsGiving is a global celebration that aims to change the world through the power of gratitude.” Epic Change is the charity that is collecting donations for a school in Arusha, Tanzania. There are four steps that are asked of participants: share, give, spread, and follow.

I tweeted: “This #tweetsgiving, I appreciate my friends near and far who are always just a phone call away.” That’s especially true this time of year. Being in Phoenix, the closest family is 1,000 miles away but thanks to Alexander Graham Bell, I can call my mother-in-law and ask (yet again) the best way to cook a turkey and make delicious gravy, or I can call up my mom and ask, “how much pineapple juice is in homebrew again?” As cliche as it might be, I really am thankful for the technology I have regular and easy access to.

I also want to mention my dogs, Lucas and Lexi. I grew up without pets but can not imagine a very happy life without them! I really think only another pet (especially dog) owner can relate, but my pups always brighten my day even when they’re hyper and barking and running around like crazy! The joy they bring and stress they reduce definitely makes my life better!

I hope that you have a wonderful holiday sharing a meal and gratitude with people you love. I know I will.
