At midnight, one year fluidly poured into another just like that first and second and last drop of champagne.
Before the whisperings — the chimera in my brain — wander too far to recover, I’ll participate in the Ten Things of Thankful.
I’m not very good at this gratitude thing; it feels all scratchy like a wooly sweater that I can’t wait to take off.
HOWEVER, I’m willing to step out of my comfort zone for just a second – read quick before it’s gone forever, ‘cos I’m way better at whining about ten things than anything else.
I’m thankful for…
1…my son’s miraculous recovery from a hellish and freaky tragedy that left him without three feet of intestines (TMI?)
2…the fact that he didn’t need a colostomy bag!! (TMI again?)
3…my tugboat man being home for the holidays
4…being married to the nicest and most patient human EVER
5…living near the ocean
5…sunshine, rain, and snow
6…winning at Scrabble not one, but two times!
10…the promise of a fresh new year
