Giving Thanks

I never got around to soliciting stories of thanks, as I did last year. (I'd love to read yours; please put them in Comments.)

Here's what I'm thankful for:
  1. President Obama.
  2. That I live in the USA, where we can count on a peaceful transfer of power after an election, and (usually) the rule of law.
  3. That I don't live in Congo, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Afghanistan, Haiti, Cuba, Russia, Mumbai...the list gets longer every day.
  4. That I have a safe house to live in and enough food to eat.
  5. My wonderful husband.
  6. My son, the light of my life.
  7. My parents.
  8. My friends far and wide.
  9. My clever and generous business associates.
  10. The kindness of strangers.
