As a Canadian living in America, I am grateful: I get two turkey days to celebrate!

And, I am grateful that I can sit in my kitchen, with electricity, running water, food in the fridge, and reach out to the world.

When I get bitchy, defensive, depressed, tired of life, in worse pain, I should remember this and be grateful. Or as my mother would say, “Be grateful for small mercies.”  I should add: and the immense ones as well.
