It's nearly turkey day and there really is so much to be thankful for...or for which I am thankful. And grateful, too. We have a roof over our head and some cash laying about and an email that has made the rounds several times says that is richer than about 75% of the world's population. There have been times when I stood in the middle of our local Kroger and thought about the abundance and variety of foods there. It boggles my mind to think of the technology that has gotten all that food to my store just down the street from where I live. I've told y'all I'd not have made a pioneer woman in the rough and rowdy past, and I'm here to re-emphasize that statement. No pioneer stock under my roof. We won't be standing in line to colonize the moon, but we will stand in line to get groceries. We are down to earth folks and simple things make us happy.
We are meeting at our daughter's home for Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for that, and everyone will be here for Christmas. My half sibs and I have made up after a falling out last year. Their mother has a lump in her breast and will have surgery tomorrow. Hopefully we will all have one more thing to be grateful for. Having health is one of the basics, and without it life is so difficult.
Here is wishing all of you a very happy Thanksgiving day with family, if you have some or friends if you don't, or spending some down time on your own doing something you want to do just for yourself.
