Happy Grateful Day

Happy, Happy, Thanksgiving!

Well, like the early Pilgrims, I am thankful that I live in America and have enough food to eat. I'm thankful that the natives are mostly friendly.

Today and tomorrow I will attempt to manage my material blessings to accommodate the company that is coming for the holiday. Bill and I struggled to feed our children well for years and now we finally have that total year's supply. A lot of it is piled over the basement floor and I need to clean it up and freshen the bedrooms down there for the company.

I will be warm as I do this. I will get to take a hot shower afterward and will have a clean bathroom available for breaks. I will have lots of fresh, clean, cool water to drink and snacks up the ying-yang. I will not have to worry that gangs of thugs are going to break into my house and rape me or burn me alive.

I am going uptown to the bank later. I have enough money to get cash to be able to treat my grandchildren to Santaland and the movies. Odds are a car bomb isn't going to go off while we're at the parade.

There is much in my life that is good. What is good in yours?

Great post, Annegb! Hot water and heat ranks pretty high with me! We got a new furnace a couple years ago and it has been great. I am very grateful for friends. I am glad that I have a family that cares about each other. I am grateful that I am feeling a lot better and think I will be able to work tomorrow. I am grateful that I have so much entertainment at my fingertips online and also that we have cable, which has a lot of quality programming. The list could go on and on.....
