This past Thanksgiving Day turned out to be more special than I anticipated. For me, it's no longer a big family event, with both my parents now deceased, my siblings and varoius newphews and nieces in other states, and no children of my own, and most of my neighbors with family visitng theirs. This year, after several invitations, from us to others, and a mix-up in communication with some neighbor friends, my partner, Annabel, and I ended up in Montrose at the home of some dear friends, whom we really haven't seen nearly enough during this past year. Like us, Jen and Maree, do not have children or big extended families who live in town. What they do have, like us, is a big, extended group of friends of various ages, backgrounds, interests, and even some with children.
There was about 25 of us, and it was a potluck affair. So, oh, my goodness, was there some food! I'm still stuffed. It was great to catch up with friends we hadn't seen for awhile, and to meet some new ones. Best of all, it was just a wonderful opportunity to chat, laugh, socialize, eat, drink and be merry, and to forget about all the negativity permeating the news and the work-a-day conversations of the last several months. So, as I'm still glowing this weekend from a warm and friendly Thanksgiving gathering, I'm re-committing myself to being thankful and saying my gratitudes everyday. I'm starting with the following.
I am very grateful for:
1. My health, mental and physical;
2. My lovely, devoted friend and partner of 30 years;
3. My warm, energy-efficient, cozy home with awesome views of the Cimarron Mountains, from which to enjoy the first snow showers of the season.
4. My charming, loyal Airedale dogs, Huckleberry and Shamus, always good for a laugh.
5. My dear sister, Barbara, in San Diego County, who is never more than a phone call or email away, . . . and who has bought more property in Colorado from me than anyone!
6. A career that I love and my fantastic team of broker associates--I finally found that something I love to do which means I'll never have to work again!
6. The loving memories of my mother and father, who will always be close to me in my heart and a source of strength, and comfort during the holidays and every day.
I hope all of you had a joyful Thanksgiving. Let the Holiday season begin!
. . . I'm also grateful for rainbows out my front window!
