Being Thankful for Social Media on this Thanksgiving Eve

A Happy Thanksgiving Wish for All

Yvonne-trans Short and sweet today. We're here, in our new home in CO. We are moving between boxes, scratching our heads, wondering, "Where did I put that?" and waiting for the final arrival of the rest of our 'stuff.'

There is much to be thankful for this year. We have you, dear readers, and for that I am personally very thankful. You comment and talk and tell stories and share your world with me and Lena and Mary and Donna and Robbi, and there is little in this world that is better than that.

The one thing better is family. This year I'm with a different part of my family - my eldest daughter, her husband, and my granddaughter. Tom will miss his family, but we know they will visit - soon, we hope!

Despite the negative news blaring out of our TVs, and in news reports online, I have nothing to complain about this year. I am so very thankful for my family, my friends, my outstanding clients, and the sun that is streaming through the windows of my 'new' office (which used to be a family room, in this house.).

Giving thanks daily, accepting the little setbacks without allowing them to defeat you, being confident in your place in the world, is all it takes to be happy and successful. It's about positive-thinking, but more than that - it's about doing whatever it takes to make your life the way you want it to be. Being a bricoleur, and being stalwart in your focus. "Do what you can, where you are, with what you have."

Tom says he can do anything with a little duct tape and wire-hangers. I believe him.

What tools do you have at hand that can help you move forward with aplomb - into 2010 ?

Best wishes in your new home! Glad to know you & Tom arrived safely and are settling in. (Don't worry, you'll find things eventually as you transition from "early cardboard" decor.)

I count our friendship in my many blessings and look forward to being with you again some time in the New Year.
