We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with our family, enjoying each other's company and good food. Thanks to my husband for a wonderful meal; I serve only as his helper since he's a much better cook than I am.
I thought I'd take a minute to reflect on the things that I'm most thankful for this year. Top of my list is my husband, George, and the two wonderful sons we raised together, Robert and Bill. Our lives only get better as our family grows to include our daughter-in-law, Stacey, and Bill's girlfriend, Margo.
Friends are so important and I'm thankful for every friend I have. I'm not going to name them all, but I love all of them dearly. I'm especially lucky to have two friends that I've known for over twenty-five years, Candace and Sue. Our almost daily contact enhances everything I do and I hope it's the same for them.
I'm thankful that our family and friends are weathering this very difficult economy. Despite a lot of belt tightening, we're all doing okay.
I'm thankful to all of the authors who write the wonderful books that keep me entertained and enlightened and fill my mind and soul with riches beyond compare.
Last but not least, I'm thankful for you, dear blog reader. Without you, my blog would fall into the silence of cyberspace. It's nice to know that you're there.
