I was curious so I went to see what I wrote her last Thanksgiving. I see that I was probably tired and a bit overwhelmed by the events of the holiday. We had just been through a large brush fire a few weeks earlier. There were a lot of stressors in our lives.
I wrote, “Let’s all hope that next Thanksgiving we can all be thankful that those crises are less threatening than they are this Thanksgiving.”
It’s next Thanksgiving. On a personal basis, a number of issues are better, some much better. On a national, historical, planetary basis, those crises are worse, not better at all.
NEXT Thanksgiving – people, we’ve got to do better!
On a much more granular level, it was a lovely Thanksgiving feast. I hope that you and yours had a wonderful holiday as well.
Tomorrow we start the Christmas lights, weather permitting.
Damn, Thanksgiving is late this year!
