This year, I am grateful for elastic-waisted pants and that tunics are in style.

Today is the holiday that would be represent me, if I had to choose.

Not because I am thankful, but because we get to eat enough to feed a small impoverished nation and then nap with our pants undone.


Actually, I think that this year, I may be more thankful than any other year of my life, in spite of the fact it has been the most difficult year of my life. I am thankful that I live each day knowing the extent of my own strength. I am thankful that I know who my true friends are, and that I no longer have to waste my time and energy on the posers. I am thankful that I know what it is like to have my love tested, and know it is strong enough to overcome fear and insecurity. I am thankful for the happiness that those who are close to me have experienced this year, with marriages and births. I am thankful for my extended family, who have given me a place to lay my head when it is troubled, and feel safe and protected in my darkest hours. I am thankful that no matter the tests in relationships, that I have the opportunity to work through them.

I hope that you all have a great day today, and good eating!!!

  1. Love love love this...yes. I don't know where to start, but a lot of what you say rings true!..for me anyway. I try to be positive about my and, well, just about life...but I can't dismiss the truth that it is hard for a lot of folks. My son has autism, OCD and ADHD...and have worked with special needs kids. It is damn hard! I prayed continually...

    I am retired now and tryin to use the difficult things from my past to better my life and future...
    Hope you will come and join my sites...
