Today I'm trying to find joy and thanks. Last year at this time we had no inkling of what was to come. Since then we've sold our old house and moved to a new one. In some ways we are so lucky to have made this move without financial damage. The kids are adjusting to their new schools. Doug is employed at a job he seems to like and where he is valued. I have every opportunity in the world to find new possibilities and friends in this place.

Today I am thankful for:

food, shelter, warmth
family traveling to be with us for our first Thanksgiving in MA
wonderful books and blogs that bring me inspiration
no more back pain
a son who can do fancy napkin folds

May this Thanksgiving bring you a peaceful, thankful heart.

That's the most important part, isn't it? But if you really want to get the folds right, you have to starch them first...or so a waiter at a fancy restaurant once told a nine-year-old me!

And (while I'm here) thank you so much for the bookmarks! I so love to have pretty ones, and, goodness knows, I need to have them handy!
