A Time to be Thankful
There is so much to be thankful for. I could being a list of all the things I am thankful for and not finish until next Tuesday. But since we are haded out camping, and I am planning a knitting marathon while we're out there, the following is just a partial list and in no particular order: (I will, howver, be spending the weekend will, however, be spending the weekend remembering all the things I am thankful for and continue listing them in my head—I think 1 for each row I knit)

1. This group of smiling people. My life would be much, much less (in every way imaginable—bad and good) without these remarkable folks. They definitely make life worth living.

2. I have always had (more than) enough to eat. I have never known a day of hunger, and probably never will.

3. I have a roof over my head. While I have, on occasion, grumbled about the condition of my domicile, I have been fortunate to always have a place to lay my head in comfort.

4. I have hair. It sounds vain as all get out, but only someone who has lost all their hair due to circumstances beyond their control can truly understand what that means.

5. I am still on this earth--living, loving, laughing. 3+ years and counting. Never thought I’d be able to say that.

6. God’s sweet grace. When all else is dark and scary, that alone is something to be thankful for.

I’ll end the list with that. As I said, I could go on and on. And loving lists as much as I do, it would have plenty of subsections and hierchies and the whole bit.

We’re off to the wilds of
Joshua Tree Park for our now-traditional Thanksgiving camping trip. Looks like it will be good weather—no rain or wind. I have several projects packed to keep me busy through the weekend. If I can just complete 2.33 projects a day, I’ll run out of things to knit just in time to go home.

Happy Thanksgiving.
