Not at ALL What You Thought

Just Thankful

Merry Day-After-Thanksgiving! I am thankful (daily, but especially this time of year):

1. for my faith;

2. for my family, as crazy as the members thereof behave from time to time;

3. especially for Juice and Goobs, who, as annoying and unaccountably clueless as they are, sometimes daily, make me laugh just as often, and are so beautiful and smart, I have to forgive them their foibles all the time;

4. for a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food in the pantry/refrigerator, and the ability to pay (some) bills, something I can't take for granted, ever, in these days;

5. for a job, a career, a vocation, which I still enjoy, despite all those essays somebody keeps assigning;

6. for my friends, RL and cyber, who are, among other realities, proof that God loves me, else I'd've been kicked to the curb by those good people a long time ago;

7. for my dogs, Nimue and Frody, the idiots.

    I am thankful for your blog posts, which are always beautiful to read, and your emails, which usually either crack me up or offer valued advice/solace/encouragement/shared happiness, and your friendship and the knowledge that, even though I don't believe, someone who loves me (anyway) is praying for me (anyway), and you know, I do think it helps (anyway).
