Just wanted to let you all know that I won't be around for the next 8-9 days.  Hubby and I are flying out tonight at 6 pm to go down to Guadalajara, Mexico to visit his oldest sister.  smilewinkgrin I am so excited and proud of myself, I didn't get anxious at all this time.  Just feel excited to go.  They have so many beautiful handmade crafts and can't wait to go shopping.  Plus, I just love this sister in law to death, she is the sweetest most genuine person you could ever meet.  And she absolutely loves my husband to pieces(almost as much as I do).  He will be one spoiled man after this trip.  His sister is 22 years his senior, so she is more like a Mom than sister to him.
So to all my Crohnie friends here at Healingwell, I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and healthy Thanksgiving. 
God Bless,
Gail *Nanners*

If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
