1. I am thankful that my lovely and talented daughter enjoyed her opportunity to perform live before television cameras in the Dunkin Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade at the Philadelphia Art Museum.
2. I am thankful the neighbors’ dogs didn’t eat me when I went over to feed them on Thanksgiving Day.

3. I am thankful for the health of my family.
4. I am thankful for the giant stack of papers I have to grade this weekend.

4. I am thankful to have a good job in an economy where not everybody is that lucky.
5. I am thankful I had a little time to myself for writing.
6. I am thankful for all my friends and the wonderful people I’ve met through blogging.
I hope you all had a peaceful Thanksgiving holiday, and for those of you in countries that do not celebrate this holiday, I hope you had a thoroughly enjoyable Thursday!


  1. I think #2 is a very good reason to be thankful. Wow, those are scary looking dogs.

    And #1 is definitely cool.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Dianne.

  2. I'm thankful you scratched out your original #4, because otherwise I would be worried about your mental health. ;)

  3. Love your list. And how exciting for you daughter.

    And, I guess, you when you went to feed the dogs. Scary!

  4. A good list. I hope your daughter had a wonderful time.
