Today is a good day for being thankful. I have so much to be thankful for, that it boggles my mind. I am in a completely different place than I was a year ago. (Or ever, for that matter!) I could go on and on about all the blessings in my life. But I have a lot of cooking to do today...Meat cooking, no less, and I am a vegetarian! (I make him touch it tho, and I just keep and eye on it while it cooks) Of course he wants yams with marshmallows and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pies, etc. It's madness! But it's also fun and reminds me of the old days when I had family. Now I have family: the best kind of family because it's family of choice.
I spent a great deal of time making a slide show of all I am thankful for. But you can no longer download videos onto youtube if they contain music. I am so annoyed by this because I loved making these kinds of slide shows and what harm does it do anyone to have a tune play in the background? But I shouldn't grumble today, so instead I'll make a gratitude list! Here's the short list of what I am most grateful for.
~My Top Ten Blessings~
Our dogs, Bonsai and Farrah and the kitty who hangs out here
Trip to Hawaii

The fact that we have enough to be able to share with others
And last, but not least: My BIF (best internet friend) Bill Charlebois
