open thread commentary
another end to another week. it has rained here for about that long and i am really beginning to dislike rain. we had flashflooding and streets underwater and a state of emergency for at least 3 counties. this is november- shouldn't it be colder and the precipitation be snow flurries? hmmmm.... couldn't be global warming. :) anyhoo- i was thinking that since this is the week before thanksgiving- perhaps i should open things up to talk about that. i don't follow the religious implications of the holiday- puritans and all- but i do have plenty to be thankful for. my husband and i have a warm home; a new sink pipe he replaced- so we have water :); more than enough food, and family and friends that love us. that right there is enough to be thankful for. i am also thankful for people of integrity who stand up to people who are not; thankful for people who reach out to people in need without a thought of a tax break or pat on the back; i am thankful for folks who look at other people as fellow humans- regardless of race, ethnic background, mental health state, or income level. i could go on and on- what is thanksgiving to you? what are you thankful for?
