Though we celebrate the day once annually, I try to be thankful throughout the year, not always successfully. This has been a tough year for me and for us all, but there is much for which to be thankful. Here are a few of them:
- My family, especially my wife
- Our friends
- Our home and living in the Pacific Northwest
- My health, such as it is. That I can see, speak, hear, smell and feel
- The cats
- That I can read, and for books, bookstores and libraries
- The garden, and the ability to plant, grow, prune, and enjoy it every day
- Art in it’s many forms: painting, music, drawing, writing, sculpture, quilts
- All the people who have blogs that I enjoy every day.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
I’ll be taking the Thanksgiving weekend off. See you Monday with a Current Reading post.
That is a great list, Richard. Lovely sentiments. Cats, reading, books, family, and friends are all things that brighten our lives.
Same to you and Barbara, Rick. Let’s hope the coming year is better for you and all of us.
And to you!
As I said before, as long as we can read, we can see the light. I am so thankful for books, for parents who taught me to read at an early age, for people who write books, and people with whom I can share thoughts about books. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Barbara, and everyone here.
Hope you had a good one. Nice list.
Richard, sorry I missed Thanksgiving. My best wishes to you and your family. I agree with your top reasons for being thankful. Family and health are on top of my list too.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Richard.
I’m at work today in the hospital, Black Friday, a few blocks away from the consumer madness of Michigan Avenue shopping. I’m the only one in our office. The phone is not ringing and there is nothing important in my email. Think I’ll finish reading my book and go home early.
