Things I have to be thankful for:
The boys: the Not-So-Little Drummer Boy, the Wrestler, the Red-Headed Menace, and the Rocket Scientist.
That I don’t have to worry about having a roof over my head or food to feed my children.
That we live in relative safety, with car accidents being the biggest threat to our well-being.
For my friends, who keep actually talking me, even when I withdraw from the rest of the world.
For health insurance that provides me with the care I need to be able to function.
For yams with marshmallows on top and cornbread stuffing with red peppers.
For Starbucks Venti Nonfat No-Whip Peppermint Mochas.
For the Bill of Rights.
For the Nineteenth Amendment.
For the color blue.
For Presiding Bishop Katherine Jeffords Schori.
For Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi.
For the LiveJournal and Blogger the rest of the blogosphere, which allows me to interact with people in many counties on different continents.
For the music of Stephen Sondheim, Eric Clapton, and The Who.
For the Pacific Ocean.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, wherever you may be, whether in your country you celebrate on this day or not, may you have joy and many blessings.
