Happy Thanksgiving — Now and a Couple Days from Now

In the next couple of days, Americans will be posting pictures of turkeys, both fresh from the oven and cartoonish run aways. People will be posting on Twitter and Facebook and WordPress all the things they’re happy for. Thankful for.

I know that most of us don’t need a reason to share our thanks on only one day a year. I am thankful every day  for the blessings I’ve received over the years, even if some of those blessings were painful. I have a feeling you do too.

But if you are one of those online thankers, I have an idea.

Leave behind the thank yous for your family, the love of your life, being able to wake up every morning, your grandchildren (blasphemy!) and share something unique and different that you are thankful for. Something others don’t think of very often.

For instance, I am thankful this Thanksgiving aloud for having a clean mammogram. As some of you may know, I had breast cancer 7 years ago. I am one of the lucky ones who have stayed clear. I have friends and friends of friends who have not been so lucky. This thank you links into so many other blessings in my world that I can’t thank my body enough.

So tell me. What unusual or out-of-the way thing are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Love and faeries to all of you!

  1. I am reminded of an old Charlie Rich song; Keep on rollin with the flow. In it he sings, “I have a lot of crazy friends, and they forgive me of my sins.” I am thankful for all my crazy, and not so crazy friends.


  2. I’m thankful for blogging. It has opened so many doors and helped me define passions that were buried beneath social expectations. It’s been very freeing!
