Giving Thanks

Every Thanksgiving I take inventory of the things I am thankful for. The list is incomplete every year because I can’t think of everything at once. What matters is that I acknowledge and be grateful for what I have:

  • My kind, loving and handsome hubby & his terrific family
  • My 3 gorgeous granddaughters & 1 handsome grandson
  • My large-breed puppy who is finally calming down a bit
  • That the American people did not vote in a President that puts classified information on an unclassified/non-government network.
  • The Independence Hall Quilters Guild in Arnold, CA
  • The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Benefits Package
  • My BFF, 2,000 miles away, and the technology to telephone, email, Skype and fly Southwest.
  • That my daughter is not embarrassed to invite me to rock concerts
  • All the blessings from Jehovah God – of which there are way too many to count.

Let me know what YOU are thankful for!

What The 49ers Should Be Thankful For

Because today is Thanksgiving, I planned to write about gratitude and thankfulness. I have so many things – some big and some small, to be grateful for.

But enough about me.

I could not help my beloved 49ers because the Force was NOT with me tonight. Even though I was wearing my official 49ers 50th Anniversary jersey and gave myself a mother of a headache.  Maybe because Baltimore is across the country. Maybe the Dark Side is stronger there.

In an effort to ease their our pain, let’s focus on what we should be thankful for this (football) season:

Alex Smith is alive to quarterback another game. Despite being sacked 11 times, grounded 8, and generally foiled at every turn.

Not one 49er got put on the injured list.  A miracle considering the brutal intensity out there.

Our coach is better looking. And taller.

We are now 9 – 2. Yes, we should be thankful for that. We wanted to be 10 – 1 after tonight, but get over it.  We are 9  frigging  2, people! Remember last season when we were 0 – 6?  We would have gone over to the Dark Side to be 9 – 2 and you know it…  😉

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
