Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving, so I shall tell you all what I am thankful for, finally. I am thankful that all of my children are healthy and for the most part well adjusted adults. I am thankful I didn’t fail too miserably at the job of parent, I am thankful that I have never harmed anyone, seriously, with my cooking abilities, or non-abilities. I am thankful that I am healthy, and don’t have to take any medications for blood pressure, cholesterol or any other ailments that people my age seem to have. I am thankful I come from a people that live long and prosper, and we are not even Vulcan!
I am thankful for Chewy and Nocona, they are always there, ready to welcome me home, letting me know someone (even if they are covered in fur and walk on four legs) loves me. They amuse me, listen to me and comfort me when I am sad.
I am thankful that stores stock ready made food, so I don’t have to cook if I choose not to, eliminates the possibility of food poisoning as well. I am thankful for a full pantry; it means no one will go hungry in my home. I never have, but my parents used to tell me stories about the Great Depression and living in the dust bowl in Oklahoma. There was a lot of hunger and people dying of starvation, I am grateful that neither I nor my children have had to go through that.
I am thankful for my parents; you see they had a choice on whether or not they were my parents, and being adopted gives you a whole new perspective on your parents. They didn’t have to take me and raise me, but they did, and they were fantastic. If I had gotten to hand pick my parents I could not have done a better job.
