To Be Grateful

It’s Thanksgiving.  I’m thankful, and grateful, for so many things… the people in my life who I love and who love me, the warmth of the sun on a cold day, cuddles with the pups, a cup of hot coffee with just the right amount of half and half, a good story, the birds atContinue reading “To Be Grateful”

Thankful Everyday – The Thirtieth

Here we are, the final day of thanks for the month of November.  I think every day, in my normal life, I say a mental and emotional thank you for something… the way my honey laughs, the excited way the pups greet me every time I walk in a room, the smiles of my grandsons,Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Thirtieth”

Thankful Everyday – Day Twenty-Nine

29.  I’m thankful for travel.  I’m lucky enough to have been a few places.  K and I love to experience a new place; the people, the smells, the tastes, the culture, a window into the way people live their lives.  We love this.  I’ve loved it since I was young and our family headed outContinue reading “Thankful Everyday – Day Twenty-Nine”

Thankful Everyday – The Tenth

Here we are, a third of the way through, and I feel like I’m just getting started.  This is good for the soul.  This little affirmation every day of things to be thankful and grateful for.  It’s sending positive energy out into the world.  I feel that from others.  I feel that for myself. 10.Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Tenth”

Here we are, day eight. 8.  I’m thankful for my second family.  When K and I got together I didn’t realize at the time that I’d be gaining a whole new set of people to call my own.  People who in turn would call me their own.  People who made me a part of theContinue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Eighth”

Thankful Everyday – The Fifth

November fifth brings the fifth day of thanks. 5.  I’m thankful for my little grandson who spent an hour today pretending with his Grandma Tam.  He’s spectacular.  There’s no better way to spend time than hanging out with that little man.

Thankful Everyday

November. So many great things about it – leaves changing and falling, cooler temperatures lead to the wearing of jackets and hats, blankets and the beginnings of spending more cozy time indoors, women’s basketball, football in full swing, and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. I’m actually not much of a holiday person. I know, bahContinue reading “Thankful Everyday”

Wow…  Thanksgiving is tomorrow.  Can’t believe it.  Sometimes these things sneak up on us.  Not that we aren’t prepared, we are.  It’s just that I can’t believe it’s already that time of year.  We have entered the holiday season.  And again I’ll say… wow. Now that I’m getting over my shock at the time ofContinue reading “Giving Thanks”

Thanksgiving Come… But Not Gone

I have been mulling over what to write for my Thanksgiving blog this year. So much mulling that Thanksgiving came and went without so much as a peep from this girl. But today, sitting here with the rain coming down and the weather turned cold I thought I might just dive in. Thanksgiving. A holidayContinue reading “Thanksgiving Come… But Not Gone”

It’s Thanksgiving so I thought I’d write a little about being thankful…. As you all might be aware we decided to do something different this year for Thanksgiving.  Something fresh and new.  Something we’ve never done before.  We ended up going out for Chinese food.  A great idea in theory…. and if you talk aboutContinue reading “Thankful”

Maintaining

Getting the maintenance phase of this all worked out is… happening.  Had to go in again today (had the CBC yesterday) for another blood test (one of my liver function tests were high from last week and my doc, who is the hospital doc this week, didn’t get it ordered before we went in yesterday).Continue reading “Maintaining”

The last time we were out of the house was Thanksgiving Day. I have to upload some photos from that day and I’ll do a post later about it. For now I’d just like to say this… we were asked a question at dinner, what are you thankful for. I immediately said Karen, but wasContinue reading “Thanksgiving”

Three Days in San Jose

Just got home from hanging with the in-laws. It was a good trip. Karen’s parents seem to have accepted me, and better yet, they really like me. I think it’s nice for her. All the years of not really being able to be herself, and now she can just be. They are obviously happy sheContinue reading “Three Days in San Jose”
