Today I'm Thankful for...

( ok.. right off the top.. today is American Thanksgiving Day but I don't want this post to have anything to do with that, and I don't want this thread to be limited to Americans' )

just list one thing ( each day if that is what strikes you )

for me... today...

I'm Thankful for Mrs. G.


( she took today off for some strange reason.. and just phoned to say that she hopes I don't mind but we are just having egg's on toast for dinner tonight as she will be pretty busy all day... me thinks I smell a rodent. )

Re: Today I'm Thankful for...

. . .all three kids arrived last night safe and sound.
. . .the two turkeys in the fridge ready to be roasted this afternoon to feed 27 people I love.
. . .a whole grocery store shelf devoted to brown sugar.
. . .the plane ticket in my handbag that gets me back to Switzerland on Saturday afternoon.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. If you are with your family today, no matter what country you are in, give them a hug.

Re: Today I'm Thankful for...

- for my child and his steps into a future that I shall not know, and I pray that I have given him the right tools to, one day, stand on his own with confidence
- for quietude and serenity
- for having listened to the music of a very different drummer since forever
- for others.. simply.. it's a privilege

Re: Today I'm Thankful for...

Today I am thankful for:

1. Being deadly sick - being bombarded with viruses from vaccines means I will be able to go on a volunteering trip

2. A particularly difficult client - it means I have a job

3. My mom who nags me - it means I have a mom

4. An argument with the OH - it means we stand equal and are not afraid/feel safe to express our (strong) opinions to each other

5. The prospect of beer(s)+bagel(s) at the Viadukt with friends later to forget all the above
