I was driving home after work tonight, crossing one of the bridges that connects the two parts of our city. It was after four, nearing dusk, the snow was falling and the lights of the city twinkling. Michael Buble was crooning "I'll Be Home for Christmas" on the radio and I realized in that instant how different my life had become than it was a year before. Fear no longer seizes me, I know how to deal with difficult situations as they come, I appreciate the little things in life, and I no longer walk alone. To each and everyone of you awesome bloggers who touch my life every day in one way or another may your Thanksgiving be filled with blessings that never cease.......


  1. Hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  2. Picturing the life and lights of the city--I simply cannot envision snow. It has been too long ago.

    Yes, our lives DO change, and finally--still--I do not drink, NMW (No Matter What)! And not only that, but I can be filled with JOY over even the seeming slightest of events (lights of a city, falling snow, "I'll Be Home...", etc.)

    AND I can wish YOU also--and your blogger friends, AND your family, a blessed, peaceful happy and wonderfully grateful Thanksgiving.
