I really don't need a special day to meditate on the things for which I'm thankful; I'm aware of them all the time. My husband and I often talk about how fortunate we are to lead the lives we do.
We have each other, lots of close friends and relatives, a house that's exactly right for us, cuddly cats, engaging professions and hobbies, ample food, minimal debt, and reliable vehicles. Beyond that, there are thousands of little things that make our lives happier and more fulfilling. With all that in mind, any complaints seem ridiculous and petty.
I'd like to give a special 'thank you' to everyone who reads this blog, as well as everyone whose blogs I read. You've all given me wonderful glimpses into your lives.
For those of you in the U.S. - Happy Thanksgiving! For everyone else, enjoy your Thursday.
