Thanksgiving dinner

Yesterday was American's Thanksgiving Day, and having a wife who was born American in North Carolina and lived for many years before I met her in Florida, it's one of the special days / times on a par with Christmas and Easter that we celebrate a little. We sat our our dining table with friends and family who happen to be around (a small group as it's a midweek evening between 2 working days in the UK) and shared a turkey dinner with Richard and Maureen, Stephen Norman and Ian.

Thanksgiving is, traditionally, a time to consider how fortunate you are - and we are indeed very fortunate. I'm thankful for family, for health, for being able to spend my time doing things that I enjoy, for that time spent earning me a living, for having a roof over my head .... and this is beginning to sound rather like an "Oscar acceptance speech". Let's keep it short today - let's just say thankful for everything - even that which might appear negative since it's usually a strengthening experience.
