Thankful: a short list

5 things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Simple things, really. But things that are hard to remember when the going gets tough.

A happy and healthy family

The ability to provide the essentials; love, food, warmth

The opportunity to be a student of life

My parents, who give me what I give my children

A loving and supportive husband who is a true partner in life

  1. Great post Laine! I liked the sentence: “I have always been an artist (at least in my head!)…” That’s exactly how I feel. I’ll be following your blog. Check mine out if you get a chance.

    • Thanks for reading, Michael! Being an artist is a state of mind! Maybe I need to make a poster out of that. I’m heading over to your blog to give a read now!
