It’s true. Sometimes I take things for granted and never truly express my thanks.
Yes way! I should express my thanks rather than keep silent about it!
Bonaparte tells me that I’m more French than he is because of my never-ending talent for complaining about everything. And I guess he’s right—but I am a very thankful person. I just don’t express it constantly.
Why do people take so long to move their cars when the light turns green? Why do people talk on their cell phones on the grocery store line? I don’t want to hear their private conversations. How come people spend five freakin’ minutes to LEAVE a parking spot? Why do I complain?
And today, on this day of Thanksgiving I am thankful for
I am thankful that…
My three children will not be spending Thanksgiving alone. Both boys will be working at 30 Rock—and afterward they are having Thanksgiving dinner with each other at a restaurant. I am so thankful that my sons love each other and truly enjoy spending time with each other. I feel I did such a great job instilling the fact that the kids will always have each other.
My daughter will be spending Thanksgiving with friends in her new city.
My three little kiddles! My purpose in life. My gems! I am thankful for them–every day, every minute, every second!And they will all be home for Christmas.
I have a job!
After almost two years of unemployment and emotional distress over worrying that I would never again be employed, I found a position at a stable and enjoyable business.
Need a lease on a truck or equipment? Give us a call and our great sales team will take good care of you! I’ve never been so thankful or happy to be handing this out!!
I have the willpower to take control of my body in the form of losing weight.
For the creation of toppers and wigs and hair extensions to disguise my self-inflicted hair loss
My newest addition from Uni-wigs. Well worth the money. I’m thankful!
That I have the privilege to vote—and that I voted for a woman. I am thankful that my vote counted to give her the popular win over the most vile human who is now other people’s president elect because #heisnotmypresident.
I am thankful that I was able to, as a woman, voice my opinion and vote for a woman for president #imstillwithher
I have freedom of speech. I prove it all the time with my written words.
I am once again, a home owner. I had my home taken away from me during my divorce. I am so thankful and grateful for Chateau Bonaparte!!
I am able to travel. Trust me—each time I fly to France, I arrive bruised because of the constant pinching I do to myself!! I never take my travels for granted.
For Main Line Animal Rescue because they allowed us to adopt Chippy—or is it the other way around?
Chippy has zero respect for me. THIS is the look I receive when I tell him to get off my white sofa. I am thankful for him.
I am thankful for my children. They are my gems, my jewels and my purpose in life.
I have a wonderful man who believes in me and is my rock. I am thankful for Bonaparte!
For Bazooka Bubblegum. It sates my cravings for food and it makes the best bubbles ever!
And sometimes I’ll stuff three pieces into my big mouth just to get jumbo bubbles!
I am also incredibly thankful that I have my circle of friends who read and enjoy this blog—it’s a smallish circle—and we all get along very well. We agree. We disagree. We laugh with each other and we cry with each other. We feel each other and we relate to each other. And I thank you so very much!
Bonaparte and I will have a quiet dinner together. Neither of us likes turkey, so it’s already planned to have a small roast chicken. And rather than spend the day cooking, I need to do my roots. So I’ll be working on making my hair look nice.
The table is set for two. Lemon Roast Chicken, Brussels Sprouts, and home made Cranberry Sauce. ….and…
Yes! Wine time–not WHINE time! Today I’m grateful and thankful!
The house is pretty-much decorated for Christmas with the exception of the Poinsettias, the wreaths and the tree. All of which will be gotten when we arrive back to the States.
I started the bannisters. The lights are now on and so’s the ribbon!
Hey. Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!!!! Enjoy your families and friends and football and the great meals that you will be gathered for!
Here’s a beautiful song by The Kinks. “Days”..because the song thanks! Ray Davies looks so hot in this video!!
