Despite the festival of complaint that this blog has become recently, I am very thankful this year. I’m thankful that my two children are with me and in good health, and that despite some setbacks our family life is a happy one. I’m thankful that I am part of an extended family and community that help to ease the burdens that life sometimes lands on our backs. I’m thankful to live in a country that affords everyone the opportunity to improve his or her situation.
We’ll be leaving my sister’s house soon to drive en masse to my brother’s house, where three generations of us will be gathered together to share a delicious meal and each other’s company.
Plus, my brother’s making bagels for tomorrow morning!
Life is good.
