Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  I would like to start my day thinking about all that I am thankful for.  (Actually, my day started 3 hours ago when I got up to walk the dogs, but you know what I mean.)  My husband and I are in love and enjoy each other's company.  I'm very good friends with my sister Tammy.  My parents taught us well and their three daughters grew up to be happy adults.  My sisters and I like to spend time with our parents.  Our grandparents were the best!

I've been blessed with wonderful animals now and throughout my life.  They've been my children and have given me much love. 

I'm healthy.  I'm seldom sick, except (oddly enough) I'm sick today.  I have a cold or something.  The cool thing is that I'm not cooking Thanksgiving dinner.  We're going out.  Jim asked me this morning what I would have done if we were having Thanksgiving here like we usually do.  I said that I would have handed someone the ingredients and told him or her to have fun:) 

I love my job.  I love working with students.  I'm very grateful for the opportunity to teach.  I'm even more grateful if my students have actually learned something from me:)

I'm thankful for having discovered you artists here in the world of technology.

I love my little granddaughters.  I got them the easy way by marrying a man who already had children who grew up to have children of their own.  One of my favorite things to do is to paint with my oldest granddaughter. 

I could go on and on, but I don't want anyone to fall asleep reading.  In short, life is very, very good.  I am truly blessed.

Martine, merci. One day I'll make my comments to you in French:) I love your blog.

Sherry, thank you. I feel a little better. I'm a little grouchy, though. I'm glad we're blogging buddies!
