Today I'm thankful for...
Friends--We're English, and Christmas is the time when English families get together (hence those sons coming home). That makes Thanksgiving feel a little strange. But kind American friends always welcome us. They've even taught us what "Black Friday" means.
Home--where the hearth is. It's cold outside, but beautiful too, with winter sunshine casting sharp-edged shadows of trees on leaves.
Fall--which is pretty, but those falling leaves don't half need a lot of picking up.
Food--we're lucky. With turkey for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the third son's after-Christmas visit, we're really lucky!
Board Games--always fun.
Books--likewise. And having finally learned what Black Friday means, I'm even offering a Black Friday deal on a companion book for your Advent Calendar. Read the whole Christmas story in 100 words a day (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/179427) for less than a dollar with this Smashwords coupon code: XH34Y
Faith--without which none of this would make sense
Fiction--without which I'd lack purpose in my writing
Facts--without which even sense becomes nonsense
and Fun--always have fun.
What are you thankful for?
