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.

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.
