To The Daily Sun,
Thanksgiving is the day to be thankful, and I am thankful.
I am thankful for my loving husband and for every day that we can be together.
I am thankful for my wonderful daughter, my equally wonderful son-in-law and his great family, and my amazing and beautiful granddaughter.
I am thankful to have been born in and am able to live in this wonderful country, and for my grandparents who had the wisdom to come to this nation. Thank you to America, land of trial and error in her history, but I like to think of as an eventual success in a great experiment in human dignity. Even in spite of the loud and clamorous voices on all sides of the political spectrum. And maybe because of those loud voices, because they prove we are a free land.
I am thankful for those who keep us safe.
I am thankful for the beauties of New Hampshire, for friendship, for being able to create music with good friends, and for so much that I can't think of at this time to list.
And last and not least, I am thankful for the wonderful team of nurses, caregivers, food service workers, and aides of all departments who work 24/7, holiday or regular day, at the Belknap County Nursing Home to give loving care to my husband.
I am thankful.
