I'm thankful for so much in my life.
My goofy Cora
My homey house
Beauty in the world
A career spent helping students
An interesting and restful retirement
and much, much more.
Thanksgiving is far and away my favorite holiday. No gifting hassles, no nonsense, just friends and family gathering around a table to enjoy one of life's greatest pleasures, sharing food and gratitude. It's an equal opportunity holiday in a not very egalitarian world - everyone has reasons to be grateful and this day gives us all a chance to reflect on them. Even when life isn't fair, there's family and hope.
Okay, enough Pollyanna for one day. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, all of you, and I hope your dinner is delicious, your family is healthy and you have inspired ideas for the leftovers.
