A Week of Thanksgiving:

I intended this week to list the things for which I'm thankful, but my lists ended after just two days. After a brief interlude to catch up with some friends, to get the Christmas decorations out, to do just a little more homework, to play a few rounds of Uno, to share a non-Weight Watchers beverage or two with my husband, to cook with my kids, to wipe a tear or 140 away when my youngest child made a gorgeous prayer, I composed my final list for the week.

It will seem shallow, but this list is about the inanimate things for which I am grateful. But life without them? Not so wonderful.

telephones
indoor plumbing
penicillin
asthma meds
freezers and microwaves
washers and dryers
natural geographical beauty
laughter
great books
and
the Internet

Hope your week-end brings you happiness ~

I know it goes without saying but I'm going to say it anyway. Ti Ho's Iced Caps, with real cream, of course.
