After the Parade, the Thanks

Before I go out to join HS at the restaurant where we will have our Thanksgiving dinner, I'm just thinking about what I'm thankful for this year.

Thankful for the life of HP, and how we all, HS, doctor, nurses, health aides, friends, neighbors, all helped bring it to a quiet and peaceful close.

Thankful for the loyalty and friendship of HS who has quietly buoyed us all up all these years.

Thankful for the friends who respected our decision about how to celebrate this year, even though it's different from their celebrations.

Thankful that I have a nice home and can pay my bills!

Thankful to the loyal music friends who made room for me without missing a beat, when I was finally able to get back into playing after years of absence.

Finally, thankful to all the friends including you, dear blogistas, who are steadfastly there for us on all the Thursdays, not just this one.

The sentiments of gratitude are mutual. Life is precious, we should all reflect on this more often. Have a wonderful holiday, you, HS and all your followers and friends - Jean in Cowtown
