Counting my blessings

 We celebrated Thanksgiving Day today and now that I'm done in the kitchen, here are some things I'm thankful for (in no particular order).

My child’s curiosity

My husband’s determination

Colored fall leaves

The constellation Orion

The bite of cold in my nose on a sub-zero degree (F) day – if I can feel the cold I must be alive

Wool socks

The molecular structure of water

The graceful twist of a double helix strand of DNA

Melody, harmony and a good drum line

Farmers, fishermen, and firefighters

Anything to amuse the dog

Chocolate, gravy, au gratin potatoes, and pizza (not all at once)

My whole family’s kindness 

Food in abundance, shelter, clean water and air, a stable government, geologically stable ground below, and indoor plumbing

I hope you have been blessed also.  Happy Thanksgiving.
