So Much To Be Thankful For

I’ve so very much to be thankful for this year:

  • Our four loving, smart and generous children who get along well with each other, and support and help each other and cheer for each other’s success
  • My loving husband and best friend who steps up without complaint when the need arises
  • Our family’s continued good health
  • Our comfortable home (and no rent increase!)
  • Having enough to eat every day, and knowing how to cook
  • Clean, fresh water every time we open the tap
  • Being able to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world
  • Getting to see the ocean every day
  • The amazing flora and fauna on our island, all of it a wonder – and no snakes!
  • The local farmers who grow and bring their fresh produce to the farmers’ market every week and sell it so affordably
  • Having enough in retirement that we don’t need to worry about covering our expenses
  • Having enough to be able to save and travel
  • Having good, affordable healthcare
  • Two beautiful, smart, fun grandchildren and the best daughter-in-law in the world
  • The generous financial aid that both Meiling’s and WenYu’s colleges provide them, that will allow both to graduate with no debt
  • Fresh, hot coffee waiting for me every morning when I get up
  • Living in a country where we are free to criticize our government
  • The people who continue to come to the blog every day, and who take the time to comment and support my writing
  • The people who touch my life each day in some way, who challenge me and make me think and reflect

Wishing everyone a blessed and bountiful Thanksgiving!
