I'm going to have a house full of people next week. I'm looking forward to sharing Thanksgiving with so many good friends and family. Things I'm thankful for:
  • My sweet husband who has loved me for 34 years.
  • My precious children scattered across the four corners of the U.S.
  • My five delightful grandchildren, and the one on the way.
  • Good friends, though I wish some of them were closer by.
  • A small house with a creek in the backyard.
  • A job I enjoy that lets me meet some really wonderful people.
  • Books, home, hot tea and scones.
  • Freedom, to be completely me, to live where I want and worship as I choose.

Pure fun!

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the holiday.
