It’s Thanksgiving.

Every day I’m thankful that I have two healthy sons.  (I’m also thankful they are employed and have their own homes).  I’m blessed with the loveliest of granddaughters who makes me smile by just saying “Gramma Penni”.  My Cardis are my little joys — no matter what bad things they think up, even though my yard is trashed, my carpet is no longer off-white (it’s more like off-off-white), and my car is always full of dog hair.  I’m grateful that I have my blogging friends and my in-person friends.  It helps widen my horizons and gives me people with whom to commiserate.

BUT this Thanksgiving Day, I am so thankful that we have a new president.  He seems to be surrounding himself with the best and the brightest, he seems to have a loving, open family, he seems committed to improving the lot of us all.  Perhaps most importantly, he is leading us by example into an era in which we all care about one another, take pride in our country and in our countrymen/women, make sacrifices for the good of all, and enjoy each sunrise and each sunset for whatever it brings.

I am thankful.
