My Thankful List

I was going to write a funny post today, at least I thought I was. One chronicling my many Thanksgiving adventures, and there have been some memorable ones. But I think I will skip that for today and just give you a short list of what I am thankful for. I think it will be a short list, and there may be some humor in it but who knows. I mean life without looking at the humorous side of things would be......would be......just awful. Sort of like being Al Gore's office manager or something.

Sorry, I interjected politics into the post. I hang my head in shame.

Some of the things on the list will be obvious and some not. But it is my list after all and I can put on it what I want. HA!

So without further ado.........
My Thankful List

I am thankful for HHBL who is just about the best man that I know.

I am thankful for my lovely progeny who keep me in stitches most of the time

I am thankful that we are a family that can laugh together as well as have serious conversations around the dinner table.

I am thankful for my parents who are sweet, lovely and hilarious....but only in a good way!

I am thankful for Pilot Man and his wife The Chef who are the best brother and sister-in-law that a girl could ask for. Even though I am still bitter about Pilot Man allowing his frog to pee in my sailor hat when we were little. Bitter.

I am thankful for not one but TWO sets of in-laws. They are unique and I love them. I mean who wouldn't love having two mothers-in-law. They are awesome.

I am thankful for Max the Wonder Dog. Even though this week he has been particularly busy ripping up things that he shouldn' my favorite pot holder.

I am thankful beyond describing for these women whom I love so dearly. My sisters of the heart.

I am thankful to live in the United States of America where we take for granted even the little things, like the fact that you can turn on the tap and get clean water. Or flip on the light switch and have electricity any time you want. And that, even if you are disgusted with your elected officials you have the opportunity to disagree with them and vote them out of office. That they aren't there for life....unless they are Robert Byrd of West Virginia of course. There I go with the politics again!

I am thankful for in no particular order: anything with coconut and chocolate, good coffee, my knitting group Tri-County Knitters, cow butts (sorry just had to put that in there), the hawk soaring above the house this morning, dinner with good friends, KNITTING!, BOOKS!, my bloggy internet friends - you know who you are I love you guys!

I could go on and on and on and on and......

but I won't (you were worried weren't you). Be honest!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.
