Giving Thanks


Well, it’s about time for me to turn in. Budge just called from my brother-in-law’s house where she helped put our brand new nephew (born Monday) to bed. I’ve been batching it for the last two days, which is a scary thought, but someone has to take care of the fuzzy babies.

In any event, I wanted to take the time to give thanks to everyone who reads B,B,&GSF . . . all 3 of you 🙂

I’m also thankful for the usual things that too many of us take for granted like family, friends, and freedom. It’s good to be a librarian in this country. I’m thankful for Budge, Mama, my brothers, and the rest of my family. I ate Thanksgiving dinner with Mama and Pa tonight and the crowd around the table has thinned considerably over the last few years, but I’m thankful for the presence of those who I still have with me and I’m thankful for the legacy and love of those who have begun their journey to the great unknown. This old life of mine has endured its share of ups and downs, but taken as a whole . . . well, as the movie says, it’s a wonderful life (not that I’ve had another life to compare it to, but hey.)

So now I and the fuzzies will head off to bed, probably to awaken early enough to ride out and see the insanity at the local shopping centers. I just go for the fun of watching. No sale is good enough for me to brave those hardcore shoppers who have camped out all night. One thing I missed about Budge not being home with me today was we didn’t get to ride by the nearest Best Buy and look at all the fools, um, hardy shoppers camping out in the cold to get one of the two cheap computers on sale 🙂

In any event, the holiday season is upon us and here’s wishing each and every one of you a happy holiday season, whatever holiday you may celebrate. Love y’all, and remember . . . wash your feet :)!
