Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you.

For the following things, I am thankful:

For Maggie, who, on Friday night, looked up at me and said “Hi Mommy. What’s up? You’re my best friend.”

For Jim, with whom I sat up in bed last night reading self-help books. And who follows me around the house with a broom and a dustpan cleaning up my messes. Even though it annoys me. I am still glad that the house is clean.

For cute shoes in size 11.

For being ready to work on my own happiness. And for actually thinking that I deserve to be happy. And also that it’s worth working for.

A good haircut.

My parents, sisters, and nieces.

My mother and father in law and wonderful extended family. Yes. I actually love my in-laws. It would be hard not to.

All my phenomenally irreverent women relatives and friends. I forget sometimes how great it is to know you. But it is truly great to know you. I am a lucky lady.

My in-the-oven digital roasting thermometer.

My stinky dogs. Not feet, but actual canines.

My funny talented internet friends. Who I never talk to, but always keep up with via their websites. I heart you. And if you are wondering if I am referring to you, then I am.

Puppies. In particular, Rhea, Finn, and Teddy. This seems to be the season of the puppy.

Patty Griffin. I am hoping she comes to my next birthday party and invites me to join her in a sing along. Just like Davey Jones showed up for Marcia Brady’s that one time. Except I don’t love Patty the way that Marcia loved Davey, if you know what I mean. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

The American voting public, who voiced their opinions very clearly this November. Good Lord am I thankful for you. Except those of you in Minnesota’s 6th district, because you elected a batshit crazy person.

My daughter’s face, when she saw the cupcake I brought home for her on Saturday. It had a giant pile of blue frosting on top, which was soon transferred to her face.

Coffee on a Saturday Morning.

Saturday Mornings.

Gravy. I love me some Gravy.

The way my little amazon daughter looks when she sleeps.

I love getting caught up on Thanksgiving posts after the fact. It's like carrying the warm glow forward for another week.

Anyone with irreverent female relatives is lucky indeed. I think your female relatives and my female relatives would have a grand old time at Thanksgiving together.
