Ten Things

I am thankful for…

  1. My parents being so caring that I never once questioned whether I was loved (call your parents).

  2. Having friends from childhood who can share earlier (ridiculous) memories of my parents (I’m an only child…call your siblings.)

  3. My two best friends from childhood being married to each other – saves me a phone call.

  4. Laughter.

  5. Sports.

  6. My last day in Las Cruces…lunch in the park with Dinah and my students letting me sneak her into class. (She lay in my lap while I graded their speeches.)

  7. Having her as my co-pilot for the drive to Iowa.

  8. Being able to spend the last two days of Dinah’s life holding her while she lay on my chest.

  9. My rental manager being willing to hug me when the vet wouldn’t.

  10. You.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
