Wow Meg, you are truly wealthy in all the right pockets. Isn't it great to get the gals back together during the 'cocktail hour' of our lives. Many of us were unaware of Gannon's health scare. Whew! I'm proud to admit I recognized the photo venue instantly. That was a great day, too.

That recipe sounds wonderful! But what would Jenny say?

Meg, you are indeed blessed to have such wonderful sisters. And I know you are a jewel of a sister to them. May you and your entire family have a wonderful Thansfiving. I will miss reading Thursday's "Mornings with Meg."

Well I'm glad the day is over before I sat down to read this. I don't think I would have been pretty with black eye liner running down my face! What a wonderful tribute and God knows when you can share that kind of love with siblings, I for one know the blessing it is! There is and never will be anything like the closeness one feels with sliblings after losing both parents. Hail to all of you and God thank you for our miracle "Gannon".

Thanks for sharing with us Meg. I'm so glad you have those sisters in your life. And, I know they are just as thankful for you -- as you are for them. I hope you had a great Turkey Day and look forward to seeing you!

What a beautiful tribute to the Gunn girls! And by the way, you look fantastic - you have lost a lot of weight!! Congratulations... I may be getting some info from you after Christmas!! I'm blaming it on stress, of course, but I have gained some very unwanted pounds that are not coming off!!
