A post on Fark asked what we were thankful for on this day.
Here’s my addition….
I’m thankful for my husband’s and family’s love.
I’m thankful that my husband’s family members in Mississippi are still alive after Katrina’s wrath.
I’m thankful for my animals, even the cat that likes to pee on my bathroom rug.
I’m thankful that I’m able to read, write, and vote.
I’m thankful that I don’t live in a country or belong to a religion that allows me to be beaten, maimed, tortured or killed for holding a job, for speaking my mind, for speaking to men, or for not covering up all but my eyes.
…and Philly cheesesteaks. Wit’.
I’m also thankful for the friends I’ve made through this blog. For those of you who comment, and those of you who just lurk in the shadows.
