Things to be thankful for....

Health. We tend not to notice it until it goes away.

Productive work. It is a prerequisite for sanity. It is an increasingly rare luxury.

Leisure. Time to read books. Time to make music. Time to watch the Twins.

People. Family, friends. We're all getting older. Sounds sad, but it is not. If we lasted forever, that knowledge would cause us to be unforgiving and petty. Knowing that we are all frail, and increasingly so day by day, enables us to tolerate, appreciate and love what is good in all.
