Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I'm now home with the fam, diggin' the snow and 9 degree weather. I have to admit, I think the Blizzard warnings for Utah were a bit dramatic yesterday, but I am grateful for the safety we had by heeding them. And leaving a day later gave me extra time to work on my thesis last night. I've got almost 50 pages now, if you count the appendices. :) Life is good.
Today's note includes yesterday's gratitude mention, und zwar: I am grateful for Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol, which is in my #1 favorite Christmas book of all time. If you haven't read this book, you NEED to. Tell me who you are and I'll buy you a copy for Christmas. It's that important to me that you read it. I promise you will be changed for the better.
As for today's measure of thankfulness, I am grateful for protection from weather--housing, clothing, heated automobiles. I can't imagine conquering snowy mountain passes in a covered wagon or on frozen feet. I am thankful for the comforts of my life.
