I am thankful

I’m quite anxious tonight; too much to do in too little time on too little sleep.  But I do want to compile a list of at least some of the things I’m thankful for.  So . . . . I am thankful for

  • My kids, who have loved me and supported me and put up with my nonsense for over 35 years now, and who have both grown into outstanding citizens
  • My grandson Logan, who is the love of my life
  • My son-in-law Patrick, who has become a good friend and who puts up with my computer dyslexia in good spirit
  • My cousin Joe Kane, who has all my life been the family member I would trust with my life
  • My niece Renea, who is just such a cool person, and who has become a superhero against all odds.
  • my friends, who allow me to know them, and who allow me to be myself, put up with my resting bitch face, and in general are totally there for me when I need them
  • for God, who watches over me when I do something stupid, and who seems to just make all those trucks veer just in time to miss me
  • for Portland and Oregon, the place that has become my home.  I love every day I wake up in this state
  • for Aidan McCree, my loyal, funny, yippy little dog, who allows me to be his mistress and take him for walks and clean up his poop
  • For trees and bridges and staircases, from which I get continual inspiration
  • pecans, caramel and chocolate (not necessarily in that order) which just makes me smile

I’m sure there are many, many more things I have to be thankful for, but I really can’t think too clearly tonight.  Have a good one everybody
