Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I wake Bob and we list the things we are grateful for – sometimes, the list is short. But in the full light of day, before we gather at a friend’s table for Thanksgiving with Ada, Hudson and the Bride’s family, I thought I’d do my Norman Rockwellian best to write a current gratitude primer.
I am grateful for the sun bathing the mountains this morning.
I am grateful for the deer stomping his greeting to me.
I am grateful for Ms Bean and her willingness to cuddle.
I am grateful for a fireplace that lights up at the push of a button.
I am grateful for my sanctuary, the aviary.
I am grateful for my First World problems in our free country.
I am grateful for my family, all over the world, and all our quirks.
We were all once strangers in a strange land. And I am grateful to you my readers, who sometimes comment, email, text or tell me that what I write resonates. Thank You!
