Happy Thanksgiving

I hope all of you enjoy this day, however, wherever, and with whomever you’re spending it.

I’m baking a coconut cake right now and in a couple of hours, we’ll head over to Susie and Todd’s like we did last year and help cook, drink mimosas and later beer and wine, and sit down to eat around 5:00pm.

There will be twelve of us all total including some new friends who don’t have anywhere else to spend the day.  It should be a fun time, I plan to eat so much, that the Tryptophan (sp?) will put me in a deep sleep until tomorrow.

Wow guys.  Howard and I have so much to be grateful for, this year especially.  We are about to begin new careers, we’re in the process of moving to another house in the village, we have a lot going on.  But these are good things, positive things.  It was amazing how things just came together for us.

First, the coordinator position at our UAF campus came open and Howard applied, interviewed, and was offered the job.

Then our friend Joanie announced she was moving to another house, thus vacating her current one, leaving it open for us.

Then the Community Health Aide position opened up here.  I applied, interviewed and was offered that position.

Then my dear Dusty offered his old but dependable barely driven Bronco to us for transportation until we can fly a vehicle out here to the village.

Then our friends here offered up their hands to help us move.

It’s humbling when you have so much good fortune happen at one time.  Howard and I try to always be aware of just how lucky we are.  So many people struggle just to have the basic necessities of living day to day.  We are so fortunate.

So, I  hope all of you remember to stop and count your blessings today, be grateful to have the air in your lungs, your health, your family, your friends and have a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
