Grateful Thanks (and Holiday Humor)

We had the best Thanksgiving in years -- everything came together well. Good food, good conversation, great company, and harmony reigned among us.

I am thankful that I've had work for so much of this year. Thankful for mercy and for second, third, fourth chances. Thankful for growth and new perspectives, for healing, for the elasticity of body and mind that allow them to respond to new situations and get back in shape for new challenges.

Thankful for the people in my life -- family by birth and choice, friends, people I know from the Internet, people I know in 3D. Also the cats, especially Gabriel, who is 13 now and a bit cranky, but still my baby.

Rules for Thanksgiving, or for those in countries without one, any family-oriented holiday of your choice.
