Here we are, once again, on Thanksgiving Day. In this crazy world of ours it sometimes seems as there is nothing to be thankful for. But, as we take a peek outside the newspaper headlines, we realize we have much to give thanks for.
What are you thankful for this year? For myself, the list is long. I’m thankful that…
my Mom is recovery from radiation treatment
my dog, Sierra, has recovered from her amputation and is living pretty well even with arthritis
I have a roof over my head and food on the table
I don’t live in a war zone
I have family to lean on and make fun of
I have friends who put up with me
I’ve found online communities with wonderful people
I’ve read wonderful books this year that made me laugh and opened my eyes to new worlds
we have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer
my feet still carry me despite my lack of cartilege
I can play with kids and be a part of their world even if for only a couple of our hours
people keep creating music, writing novels, and other wonders
nature rebounds ever Spring with it’s green hills, blooming flowers, and blue skies
it rains (even if it makes my arthritis worse)
and…well, I could go on and on.
So, this Thanksgiving let’s remember what we’re thankful for even if it’s just the fact that we made it to another Thanksgiving.
Hope yours is filled with celebration, good conversation, and delicious food!
