My house with a roof that doesn’t leak (anymore)
My job which is part of a joyful, service-oriented enterprise, and my manager who leads me well
My Mom from whom I continue to learn (but she doesn’t realize it)
The rest of my family including my friends (you know who you are) from whom I continue to learn and who are vastly entertaining
My co-workers from whom I continue to learn and who are also vastly entertaining
Old friends and new friends
My neighbors – Xtreme entertainment (and fine folks and friends)
I am relatively healthy considering I’m barely trying (I ought to)
My new kitten, Gracie, who is simultaneously a trial and a joy – she makes me laugh!
My sainted dog, Chloe, who is loyal and loving and mindful of my wishes including the one that says “Don’t hurt that gremlin kitten!”
The public library
Alarm clocks (really)
The sun and the clouds and the sky, the breeze and the odor of sea water
Fans (the blowy kind)
Generosity and generous souls
My Mother’s handyman
Being an American
The guy who mows my yard (even though he butchers the honeysuckle by my mailbox)
Humor, most kinds
There’s plenty more. Just can’t think of them.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
