Thanksgiving is coming…My children our coming home…My pies are baking in the oven….


Thanksgiving is coming and 2 of 3 sons are coming home.  The eldest is in Beijing and he and his GF are going to celebrate with peking duck… The middle one has been in Cambridge for the last four years and is now at RPI for graduate school and is coming home….The youngest is at a freshman at a liberal arts college near home….

I ran around buying food that my boys like and planning menus…..Today I actually was domestic enough to make my pie crust from scratch….They are baking while I write this…My dad and stepmom and her sister will join us for Thanksgiving….

As I write this I realize I have a lot to be thankful for….

I have a husband who loves me and thinks me pretty (even though I am fifty and a bit fat)…

I have son’s who are making progress towards their goals…

My son’s are all men to be proud of…

My stepmom recovered from her horrible complication to surgery and we have her….

I find my work rewarding….

I have really good friends who care about me….

I have a son who thought I would make a good Congresswoman…

My family is healthy…

My husband and I aquired a great housemate (grad student from England)…

The old dog stopped peeing on the carpet …

I get to make the holiday for my family and my husband even peeled the apples…

I have a wonderful extended family…

We own our home and can pay the mortgage on all our rentals…

I have food and shelter and do not want for things  ….

When I put the the key in the ignition the car starts….

All in all I feel that things are pretty good.  Yes of course we could use more money…It would be nice if we owned a car with less then 110000 miles on it…It would be nice to have more clients…..

BUT I WOULDN’T TRADE WHAT I HAVE FOR THOSE THINGS!
