Here are a few things I'm thankful for this year:
Surviving a health crisis. I had a health update post yesterday, so you can take a look at that if you haven't already. There were a few days in July when I thought I was a goner. I'm not, and I hope to be around for a while. I'm thankful for that. I have a distance to go, but so far, so good.
Angela, Allen, and Tom. They came through for me big-time. I couldn't have made it without them.
My sister, Francelle, and my brother, Bob: They came through, too, in big ways, and Bob even took over on the sale of Judy's parents' old house. Closing was on Tuesday, and I didn't have to drive up for it because he stood in for me. Now I have one less problem to worry about.
All of you who read this blog and a lot of others, too. I never knew how many people were concerned for me and my well-being. I was surprised and touched at the outpouring of good wishes, prayers, good vibes, and genuine caring.
Keanu, Li'l Ginger Tom, and Gilligan. The three little kittens I pulled out of a ditch back in the spring. They've sure livened things up around the house. They've gotten much bigger, too. Much, much bigger.
