Good grief, Susan, I feel worn out just reading about everything you have on your plate right now.

First:
Concentrate on Thanksgiving dinner. You have so much for which to be thankful.

A mother who is still with you (mine died 34 years ago at age 52)
A daughter expecting a baby (this is an absolutely wonderful experience).
Friends coming to celebrate Thanksgiving and the upcoming birth.

Personally, I think you have done your part considering you are fixing the meal for Thanksgiving and hosting the baby shower. Throw in the piano recital for 35 students, and I say find a bottle (or case) of wine (if you imbibe) and a quiet corner in your home and take a little time for yourself.

Back to the shower, a small favor in the form of a candle, a fragrant bar of soap or a shower gel sounds wonderful to me. Talk to your daughter, I'm sure she doesn't expect you to wear yourself out trying to arrange three major events within a short time frame by yourself.

Be sure to ask your friends and family for help. If your daughter's mother-in-law is coming for both events, I bet she would be glad to help with the food and games for the shower.

Take good care of yourself. This the time of year to enjoy your blessings.
