I Am Thankful
I added a few words here and there to my last year's Thanksgiving blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you, dear Readers, new and longtime friends.
Love'N Stuff, Nancy
I am thankful I don’t have to line up in size places.
Or take SATs.
I am thankful that the farmers market is a block away.
And that I can walk there, to the theater and to my favorite restaurants and bookstores.
Alone or with my husband, whom I am thankful for every day.
I am thankful I can walk.
I am thankful for work that engages and excites me. And that I'm still at, developing something new, challenging, and fun.
I am thankful for the loyalty and support of wonderful, longtime friends.
Including those who go back to first and second grade.
I am thankful one came over last month and last year offering ongoing support on my new project.
I am thankful for people who show up.
I am thankful for kindness.
I am thankful I'm getting better with age about establishing my priorities.
I am thankful no one sees me count by 2 when I do push-ups.
I am thankful for lox with or without cream cheese or a bagel.
I am thankful my neighborhood grocer has a month-long sale on brie.
I am thankful for meditation.
And a good-enough hair-cutter.
And competent doctors.
And, for the moment, that I am in good health.
I am thankful that the members of my family are in good health.
I am thankful I am not:
a. childless, b.grandchildless, c penniless, d. humorless
I am thankful every day for the love of my precious, sweet family—my greatest wealth--beautiful inside and out.
