I like Thanksgiving. Though rooted in self-serving historical fiction, I think it has survived to a status of irreligious and apolitical purpose: simple thanksgiving and blessing counting. People of every political inclination take time off of their year-round umbrage to be grateful, to eat turkey and watch football. It’s all good.
I am thankful for a healthy family. I’ve learned this year that it’s nothing to take for granted. I’m thankful for a baby that brings constant wonder to our lives. I’m thankful for having thus far weathered the economic storm. I am thankful for a cozy house in a charming, underrated neighborhood. I am thankful for having had many opportunities in my life, and having accomplished almost everything in my life I ever wanted to do. I am thankful for many friends, real and virtual, and to my readers. Happy Thankgiving!
