May each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. It often seems that this holiday is lost in the rush toward Christmas merriment. I find this holiday to be a good time to reflect on the riches presented to me in my life. My husband, my daughter, our pets, my home; I could go on for quite some time.
While this past year has been filled with challenges, it has also been showered with blessings. My husband was laid off a year ago this past September. It has given him a time to be here at home with our creatures while he works on a software product. It has brought a certain kind of peace where he does not feel the oppressive presence of a harsh manager every day. I'm thankful he can be here. I was diagnosed with diabetes a little over a month ago. It has given me a chance to wake up and get healthier with the support of my loving family.
I am thankful that I have a job and good benefits. I am thankful that our home is paid for, that we carry no credit card debt and that we own our cars. I am thankful that we have a beautiful, loving, intelligent and generous daughter who lights up our life. I am thankful that our nation took a good turn and we now have a leader who I can feel proud of and respect for. I am thankful that my husband loves and supports me even when I am prickly. I am thankful for the support and love I feel here on my blog and the blogs of those I frequent.
Happy thanksgiving everyone!
