Yes, another post on thankfulness

No doubt half the bloggers in the US are running some sort of post on what they’re grateful for this year and why, because that’s what Thanksgiving is all about here.  And I’m going to be no different.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because nothing happens.  At my house, anyway, there are no expectations to meet or fail to meet; no rules or rituals or requirements.  The kid and I go out for Chinese in the afternoon, unless we don’t.  Then we watch a movie, unless we don’t.  This year we’re living in a house with a fireplace, so we may light a fire and toast marshmallows.  Unless we don’t.

But one thing we do every Thanksgiving, without fail, is be very very glad we’re here and we have each other.

Hope your day turns out to be as wonderful as mine!
