What I Give Thanks For, 2006 Edition

My brother, Wally, in a turkey costume for his kindergarten play in 1971This Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for many people and things, in addition to those I listed in last year’s Thanksgiving post.
  • My first grandchild-to-be, created by my daughter, Rebecca, and my son-in-law, Li. I know that the baby will be beautiful and will be raised and loved well by his or her parents.


  • That moderation has returned to the U.S. federal government through the 2006 midterm elections. It’s not good when the wishes of huge groups of people are ignored by their government. Here’s hoping that my 2007 Thanksgiving post can include gratitude that U.S. foreign policy is headed back toward sanity and human decency.


  • That my husband, Ed, continues to love me as much as I love him and keeps striving to grow with me after 14 years together. He’s intelligent, intellectually stimulating, fun, and an artisan, and he has a heart of gold.


  • Rebecca and Li, who have just started out on their life journey together and are good for each other


  • My sons, Neil and Jared, whose hearts and minds unfold daily in delightful ways


  • My new friend, Misao


  • My newly renovated home, now warmer and more attractive


  • Health care insurance, for as long as it remains affordable for my family


  • Clients, old and new, both for the income they bring me and for the intellectual stimulation that editing their writing brings me
