Giving Thanks

Lenore is grateful for disgusting things to chew

  November 23, 2009 – I love Thanksgiving. A strong sense of family, of connection, one of the few times the country seems to take a breath – before the shopping begins in earnest. This year will be different kind of Thanksgiving for me, a change in the nature of my family and how I spend the holiday. This week, I am going with Maria to get a Christmas tree for the farmhouse.
  It is a loving and chastening time. I am grateful for my family and friend. For my work. For the dogs. For the farm. For the opportunity to grow and change as a human being. For the defining challenges difficult times bring. For Maria. For my photography.
  For the great of being a writer, of getting to tell my stories.
