The Magnitude of Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving, all.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends. I love you all so much.

I had the great good fortune to spend Thanksgiving with some of the most special people in my life: Laurie and her 3 girls (+ Filipe) and husband Mike, Osito, Melissa, & Dean. Heidi texted me with some simple words that touched me to the core.

I am grateful for SO MANY things, such as the ability to recognize that gratitude, in and of itself, carries with it an awesome power to transform, to heal, to evolve.

To add some fun to today's post, here is a favorite joke that I won't be telling after January 20th:

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?
