So, in two days I make a trip to Chicago, or more specifically, South Holland, where I will partake of the best kind of Thanksgiving dinner: the one someone else cooks! In tribute to the season, here is an alphabetical list of 26 things for which I am thankful:
Becca’s Facebook friends. Whenever this blog spikes in readers, it’s because my sister Becca has shared a post on Facebook and her friends, many of whom don’t even know me, take time to read it. Thanks to her and to them.
Captain America. Obviously.
Donors. Thanks to all my friends who are on the National Bone Marrow Donor registry!
Enough of everything I need to have a good life, and then some.
Fr. Luc Joliecoer who runs Sheepfold School in Haiti
Guidance from friends and family who share their insights into social issues and life issues.
Health Insurance. So glad I have it. Let’s everyone have that.
Ivanek, Zeljko. Actor Zeljko Ivanek, for stopping for a photo and autograph at Lincoln Center. Made my month!
Jimmy’s Pizzeria, East Walpole. Best pizza, best price.
Kids who behave.
