Thanksgiving

After my town survived Hurricane Sandy it seems even more important to be grateful.

I'm grateful for the safety of my family.

I'm grateful for the people who always show up to help



I'm grateful for Siren and Isadora. They brighten any day and love unconditionally.
In their own way of course - they are cats.


I'm grateful for all of you. I realized it again when I couldn't share the storm with you and I worried about you worrying about me.


Most of all I'm grateful for Hope.



And on we go ...

One thing that really put me off during our recent election was the "I did it all myself" attitude expressed by so many of the opposition.

We're all in this together and we need each other and we depend upon each other in myriad ways.

I'm grateful for your friendship and all those who have cared down through the years.

May you enjoy an especially fine Thanksgiving celebration with your family.

I am thankful that you have Hope and that you share her with us.
I am thankful that I found you as a virtual friend, a set of wise east coast eyes that widens my world.

So many of us are grateful you have Hope in your life. I smile, even giggle, when I think of her, your cats, and their "long time-out"!

Maybe it's just because I'm more involved on Facebook and my blog, but it seems to me that more people are thankful this year than ever before. You have much to be thankful for...including that darling Hope for sure. Ron and I still have our struggles with health but our blessings far outshine our woes.
