Later this week, we Americans will celebrate our day of Thanksgiving, but I don't think we need a holiday to be able to proclaim how grateful we are.
So, today's What? Monday question is the following:
For what are you grateful?
If I told you all the reasons I'm grateful, I'd never finish this post. Therefore, I shall do my best to choose the most important reasons I'm grateful.
I am grateful for my children:
|I'm not sure whose kid this one is -- never seen her before in my life,|
but I'll be grateful for her anyway.
|Little Chick and President Jimmy Carter|
|Favorite Young Man|
I am grateful for dogs:
I have edited four books during the past year. I'm so grateful to the authors and publishers who trusted me to perform this task.
And I am so very, very grateful for each and every one of you. You make my day, my month, and my year when you read my blog and, especially, when you leave a comment.

Don't know who they are.
I am even grateful for mentalpause. It means that life goes on.
Thursday is supposed to be a holiday, but really it's just another day -- another day during which we can express our gratitude. I don't know where I'll be, but I'm alive; and I'm grateful because I no longer look like this:
Infinities of love,
P.S. I won't post again this week. You'll be busy stuffing your turkey and yourself, and then the wild ones among you will go shopping. I'll see you next week, perhaps on Cyber Monday. Now, that's my kind of shopping day.
Also, I admit I'm a little sad that I no longer look like this, but I don't miss the teenage angst.
