Here's something to be thankful for: You don't have to cook this pumpkin!
Amazing, isn't it? It's a real one, too. This photo was taken in the lobby of a local restaurant where we'd gone for a dinner celebrating the three Eagle Scouts our Boy Scout troop promoted this year. Sam is there to illustrate just how big it is.
I'm thankful for a lot of things this year, some of them involve my writing career, and some have absolutely nothing to do with it.
Sam getting his Eagle is one. Needless to say, I'm very proud of him, but I'm also very pleased with the progress that Mikey is making toward his future in computer graphics technology. Maybe someday he'll be working on an animated version of The Cat Star Chronicles--or not. Can't see him animating a Zetithian penis, for example. He'd die of embarrassment!
But, I digress. I've got another year with my sweetie to be thankful for, and when I see just how hard it is for some folks to find lasting love, it makes me that much more thankful that I've had it for thirty years.
Finding a love that would last wasn't something I ever thought I'd find. This came up in a conversation the other day, and it made me stop and think for a bit. I never thought I'd even have a boyfriend, but I found one, and he's still my boyfriend after all these years. I've never met anyone I'd trade him for, either. Sure, we've had our ups and downs, but he's still the one, and for that, I am truly thankful.
Have a great day!
