TRULY THANKFUL

Last night I was thankful that my son’s accidental collision with the pillar in our basement only resulted in the need for three stitches and not a serious head trauma. I was thankful that we have a plastic surgeon in our circle of friends and that he kindly saved us a trip to the ER by sacrificing some of his family time. I was thankful that the white chocolate pecan pie that I baked came out okay despite the drama beforehand.

This morning I am thankful for breakfast in bed after the chance to wake up without the help of the alarm clock. I am thankful for my family, my friends, my writing buddy, my health and my happiness.

Later today I will be thankful for the big turkey dinner and the fine companionship of a friend and her family who welcome us like their own.

Tomorrow I will be thankful for another day off from work and another chance to sleep late while my husband tackles Mission Black Friday. I will be thankful for the many blessings and good fortune that have been showered upon me. And I will try to remember these in the days ahead.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Yes, I'm happy to have that behind me. That's kids for you, always keeping you on your toes and running.
Happy Pecan Pie Day to you. Or Pumpkin if you prefer.

I am thankful that little guy managed to avoid a concussion (how?) and that you didn't get to glimpse his skull through the gap, although the entire thing is nauseating to contemplate nonetheless.

I am thankful for you poking me to write and submit works and whatnot, but most of all for your friendship.

I am mildly envious of breakfast in bed, but will have to count all those bedside meals at the hospital.

And I will remind you of those thankful things you listed, in case it comes to that.

Your poker is bigger than mine - and I'm thankful for that, 'cos I need more poking. Did I just hear a loud and dirty laugh?

Besides all the rest above (you said it, girlfriend!) I'm also thankful for your sense of humor.
