Today I am thankful for my husband, that he is still with me despite a heart attack and my menopausal hormones.
I’m thankful that I have a job with people that I enjoyed working with, and that has health benefits and time off to live my life outside of work. I pray for those who do not have jobs and/or health benefits, and that those in Washington and Raleigh will open their hearts to compassion for those in need instead of blaming them for their circumstances.
I’m thankful that my family is well and happy, and that my mother is able to live an independent life and have fun at 87 years old. I pray that I become like her.
I’m thankful that Miz Jazz is looking and feeling better every day, and that we made the choice to keep her with us a little longer.
I’m thankful that Theo is such a cuddle-bunny and gives me comfort and joy every day. I’m thankful that fate led us to be together after he was left at the shelter, rescued for adoption and in foster homes for so long.
I’m thankful that I am able to live my life comfortably, with enough money to provide shelter, heat, AC, and nourishing food, as well as art supplies and travel that nourishes my soul.
I’m thankful for old friends and new. I don’t have many, but I cherish the ones that I have. You are special.
I’m thankful for you, if you have read this far. Blogging has been a therapeutic activity in my life, and I have made good friends with readers whom I’ve never met face-to-face. I never expected that bonus. Thank you.
