Thanksgiving 2016


On This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for:


  •  My health, for without that, nothing is enjoyable
  • The fact that our house and trees have not burnt down in a wildfire (but my heart hurts for those that have)
  • The fact that even in this drought, our well still has water (but my heart hurts for those in Flint, the Standing Rock Tribe and the protestors [and all those downstream from that area], and all the world’s people for whom fresh water is a luxury)
  • The fact that I have a roof over my head and good food to eat (but my heart hurts for those who do not)
  • My readers, who give me a reason to write
  • Our cats, who give me unconditional love (and a lot of laughs)
  • Our friends, near and far (distance being relative here in the country), real-life and not-yet-met-in-person (the meetings will come)
  • My husband, whom I love to the ends of the earth
  • Most of all, I am thankful for my family, for they are not all blood but they are family, nonetheless

Happy Thanksgiving, with love
