Giving Thanks
Too many blessings to count, but the list starts with the family, especially the kids, who laughed together a lot last night while I baked a pumpkin pie. That was a nice pick-me-up after a bad day at the office. I'm thankful for my husband, who is wonderful and caring, and brought me a glass of wine last night because he could tell I needed it. Then he gave me a foot rub. He is totally getting extra Cool-Whip on his pie today.

Our parents, who worry about us, and love us, and help us whenever we ask, which isn't often, but that help is freely given and we couldn't be the parents we are if we hadn't learned from you. All of you. We are still learning from you. Thank you.

We are thankful for our friends, both near and far, who we don't get to see often because this crazy life we lead keeps us busy "doing." I'm most grateful that when we do get together with them it is like a day hasn't gone by. Grateful, too, for readers of this blog, which is now over a year old.

I am thankful there is so very little for me to worry and complain about (although it hasn't stopped me). I truly lead a charming life.

Happy, happy Thanksgiving.
