At least this year
The Duke and Miss Amabel Hawkins
by HL Carpenter
It's really quite a list.
Good food, good friends, good company
And more I've likely missed.
But what I’m really thankful for
(which may prove that I'm a dork),
is the one thing I use the most--
my fetching, fabulous fork.
Happy Thanksgiving to my friends and colleagues! I look forward to toasting you all during our turkey dinner.
I'm grateful for the spirit of adventure. It gives me the courage to try new foods, read genres I've never tried, and travel to places I've never been whether in my town or in another country. Without my spirit of adventure I never would have worked as an archeologist, thrown a tomahawk, or eaten a pickled walnut.
Hello to all from looney Dune Island. This year, I'm giving thanks for all of you out there, reading my pearls of wisdom while I conquer dirt, germs, and the women who are after Carl and his cute dimples. You're even better therapy than my PNS group (the Phobie Non-Socies. Yeah, we're a riot!). I lift my 2.5 ounces of red wine to all of you. Oh, and Eleanor and her assortment of (creepy old) dolls say Happy Thanksgiving, too.
Had you hoped to have more, be better in some way this year? Give yourself a pat on the back for the vision. If you had a plan and took steps to make that vision come true, then you are two for two, whether you made that dream a reality or not. Keep trying, keep dreaming, and have a great new year.

For me, Thanksgiving and Christmas are my annual and favorite crossroads of past, present, and future – where I remember and cherish what was, am thankful for what is, and hope for the best for what will be. Happy holidays!

Wishing everyone a warm, happy, and safe Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, food, love, and a wonderful book for when you need to escape them all.
