Googles 2009 Snoopy/Peants Thanksgiving
Google's 2009 Snoopy/Peants Thanksgiving

It’s been a month since my last entry…

…that sounds like some opening to a Bloggers Anonymous meeting.  But it’s true.  Life – for better or for worse – has been really busy and I haven’t been able to write in here or keep up with my ‘A Song A Day’ posts at all.

But blogging stuff aside, as I wait for  Year 2 of my 2-hour Turkey Recipe to reveal its results (and working…yes, I’m working on a holiday), I find myself contemplating – as others that have crossed my facebook page and twitter feed – the things I am thankful for.

Usually this is expressed in song (hear my song from last year) or in a e-greeting, but this year I’ve told people to ‘hear my song from last year‘.  So lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the effort placed into life and the meaning that one extracts from it.

My friend Thea wrote on her Facebook status:  “The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, they make the MOST of everything.”

And I feel really lucky what the most of my everything is – family, friends, and having known for so much of my life where so much of my passion lies – in people, in the written word, in bringing those two together.

So I’m not the wealthiest person in the world by way of Warren Buffett, but I am one of the wealthiest persons in the world in everything that really counts….and I am thankful I am able to say that.
