I Am Thankful

Thursday is Thanksgiving, an occasion for gluttony, but also to take stock in all that we have to be grateful for. You will hopefully be spending it with family or friends, but please commemorate it somehow. It requires no religious faith and is a uniquely American holiday.

I give thanks to whatever powers enabled my brother to get a plane ticket so he could fly to New York and spend time with family. I am thankful I’ll be feasting on turkey with the Sheahan clan come Thursday.

I’m thankful I have good friends, from all corners of the U.S.A. and the globe.

I am thankful that I still have a job, when many people more educated, knowledgeable and skilled than I have been put out of work. I am thankful I work with nice people and have a sympathetic boss who appreciates creativity. I am thankful for good music and the people who make it.

I am thankful that I have my health and a roof over my head, a cat who is less of a bitch every year, and a blog.
