I am thankful, for this and other things

Today I am thankful for beautiful and healthy children patient husband family, all of whom are here now
...the more food than we need today
...that I can provide my children with all they need and most of what they want
...our house that shelters us and is also a home (of just the right size)
...that I can reach out and find friendship, support, and caring when I need it

That last one includes you. Thanks for taking the time to read this blog, comment to me, and share. Thanks also to you who write, too. A little Natalie Merchant (Kind and Generous) for you...

Have a really happy Thanksgiving! (And if it isn't Thanksgiving for you...have a really happy day.)

(Believe it or not...this is a Thursday Thirteen.)

Those are wonderful things to have. You are very lucky!

And thank you for reminding me that I, too, have many things to be thankful for.

LOL at "just the right size" :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

such beautiful girls, Julie. on this Thanksgiving (for you), i want to thank you for telling me Patience's story this morning.

even if mine turns out differently, it is a comfort to look at her lovely face and think "well, sometimes, luck happens."

enjoy your holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving!

BubTar had fun yesterday, he is already planning the next time, "Maybe somewhere a little less sandy?" he said. LOL. "Like the Children's Museum?" He was also pleased to get home and find KayTar still napping and knowing he had been playing instead.

Hi Julie,
Love the fact that your comment window is a popup so I can watch the video at the same time as writing this comment (know the song well but never seen the video before). I've sent you a Thank You on my blog here.
Enjoy the rest of Thanksgiving weekend!
