Happy Thanksgiving

No turkey for me today, since I am working and can't possibly celebrate in style, so I am doing Thanksgiving this Saturday! But I am thankful today for many things: my wonderful children, friends I've known for many years, new friends I've made through blogging and in recent years, my so-far good health, and for my husband, now gone, but who remains with me every day.

I'm also thankful right now that the little dog, Jackson, that I took in off the street has found a home. A colleague of mine adopted him, and in this photo you see him playing in his new home with her dog, Borko. The two are perfectly suited; it's a perpetual game to see who runs out of energy first. By the way, that's a happy show of teeth on Jackson's part.

Are you counting your blessings today?

So glad Jackson found a home with Borko. Looks like they're having fun. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, every day of the week.

Yes, I am indeed counting my blessings today; I am so lucky to have my children and grandkids closeby to enjoy. I have come upon the information about your husband's death belatedly, but, nonetheless, wish to offer my condolences. Your comments about him still being with you every day speaks volumes about your relationship.

Oh brilliant, Bibi. Jackson has a home. Well done to you for taking him in and caring for him till a home was found. I know this isn't always easy. He looks so happy with his new friend, Borko.

I'm thankful for so many things, among them my many good blog friends—so glad I got to meet you face-to-face this year, Bibi.
Lovely to see young Jackson happily ensconced in his new home, and with a built-in playmate to boot!
