  1. 1) I, too, am thankful that Obama is President–every single day.

    2) I’m thankful for my grandchildren and especially for their being young enough that they still think I’m really cool.

    3) I’m thankful that my husband still has moments of being the man I married–and I’m thankful that he isn’t retired yet and I am.

    4) I’m thankful for my children and especially that one of them has children of her own and finally gets it.

    5) I’m thankful for each of my glorious sisters, in a different way.

    6) I’m thankful for the beach, and I’m thankful that most people don’t go there in the late fall.

    7) I’m thankful every time I open the dishwasher and find that the dishes are dirty and there’s still a little room. (I’m not thankful when they’re clean and I have to put them away.)

    8) I’m thankful for my IPOD and wish I could locate it.

    9) I’m thankful for (not necessarily in this order) England, the Teaching Company, Barney Frank, Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart, TIVO (not just any old DVR–only TIVO), Stephen Colbert, Nancy Pelosi, music, Debbie Wasserman Schulz, good margaritas, Fall, Spring, a few cherished friends, the garage door opener, camelias, daffodils, and Jane Austen.
