What are you grateful for in regard to:

Your home life?

I’m grateful that I have a home. When I lived in CT, I almost didn’t have one due to numerous mistakes on my part.

Your family?

I wish more of my family members were alive, but I am grateful for the time I had with them. I am also grateful for those who are still here, for extended family, and for my good, good friends.

Your blogging community?

I’m grateful for the other writer’s who read my stuff, and even leave comments once in a while. Thank you!

Your city or immediate area in which you live?

I’m grateful for Birmingham’s comparatively affordable cost of living.

The regional area in which you live?

Boiled peanuts, and the fact that there was an actual autumn this year, and the leaves are still colorful.

The country where you live?

OMG. Don’t get me started. Having lived in Saudi Arabia, I cannot extol the United States enough. With all its faults, the USA is aces.


Well, let’s see. I am grateful that I haven’t irreparably snapped yet, and still have all the moving parts I was born with. I also appreciate my warped sense of humor, even though many people do not. 🙂
