Joining the Hanukkah/Thanksgiving mash-up along with others today, I borrowed a recipe for this post. Instead of socks (always a welcome gift on Hanukkah)
I am offering 8 things for which I am thankful. (Note to kids: you may still get socks. You’ll have to wait and see.)
I am thankful:
For Magnificent, magical Madeleine
For Fabulous, funny Fenton
For Extraordinary, exceptional Ezra (who should make his mama thankful by taking a long nap today!)
For not having to cook a damn thing this year (baking, yes; cooking, no)
For having wonderful kids-in-law
For my loyal, supportive friends and extended family
For my three thoughtful, generous grown-up kids (my Amazon wish list is updated, by the way)
And for the guy who believed that slow and steady wins the race: in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, by my side for four decades.
To any readers out there, if you’re looking (and even if you’re cooking), I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving.
Bonus thanks to my fellow November bloggers: we are almost at the finish line!
