On this very American holiday we traditionally overeat, watch football and at some point, think about what we are thankful for. I plan on doing all of those, but I wanted express my gratitude for so much in my life, from the simple to the complicated. As it's my first year, I'm staying mostly serious. Here's my list:
I am thankful for . . .
. . . my honey, who still makes my heart leap after more than twenty years.
. . . my family, a crazy bunch who for all our differences manage to stick together.
. . . the fact that my butt is finally healing after my bouncing stairway adventure.
. . . food and shelter and clothes sufficient for our needs.
. . . heat and electricity and running water.
. . . living in a place that is not experiencing war or a natural disaster.
. . . beaches, mountains, lakes, and other natural wonders of the world.
I hope there are many things in your life that you are thankful for. Have a great day off!
