A lot of people I know/have known just love to spew about how thankful they are for this, that and the other - but usually, it's done in a manner of self-serving platitudes and managing to exude their wonderfulness while not taking responsibility for the harm they may have caused others. Nonetheless, when I read or hear certain individuals deliver their sermons, I just shake my head. I can't help it. So let's keep it simple:
I have a lot to be thankful for. I have a beautiful new home; no debt; my health, friends, things that fulfill me (like music and writing), family and love. The person I love is healthy after a year of difficulty and we are together and happy. So no more nor less need be said.
We will shop later today for Thanksgiving groceries and I will savor this year's feast with a great deal of joy.
And my wish to all is everyone be with the ones you love and be thankful for that.
