A Thanksgiving Interlude

If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and November is one of my favorite months. I don’t do anything fancy for Thanksgiving — my daughter Jessica and I go out for Chinese and get extra egg rolls — but it’s a quiet, calm day for me in which I make no demands on myself except to think up something to be grateful for. Even in the hardest years I’ve always been able to do that.

A few years ago, Jessica came up with a list of our three wishes, the things that matter most to us:

1. That Jessica will grow up big and strong.
2. That we will always have good work to do.
3. That we will live happily ever after.

So far, all of our wishes have come true.
