The short list

Things I'm thankful for? Goodness, there are any number-- so many that listing them would take more time than I have, or want to take away from actually enjoying them. But here's a start:

I'm thankful...
  • for our children-- both home, and safe, and healthy.
  • for my husband and his patient good nature in the face of my early rising, sermon prepping, parish juggling and compulsive attempts at organization.
  • for friends who are so great that we can live as 8 people in a small ranch, on top of one another for three days, and still like each other enough to look forward to doing it again.
  • for plenty of good food to eat and share, and still have yummy leftovers.
  • for pie, and warm chocolate chip cookies.
  • for silly movies shared with folks who laugh in all the right places.
  • for parents, siblings and their spouses, nieces and nephews... extended family, who we'll see at Christmas!
  • for those distant friends (and the occasional well-behaved sparring partner) with whom I keep in touch via cyberspace, and who laugh and cry and care and pray, all around the world.
Thank you, Lord, for all of these.

There, perhaps that adds some space between comments and such?
