Day 24: Thanksgiving

Day 24: Thanksgiving

Today’s prompt is: what are you thankful for?

Or, what does “Thanksgiving” prompt you think about or write about?

We don’t celebrate it in the UK, but I’ve had some splendid thanksgiving dinners with American friends.

Most of the Americans I know are a bit conflicted about it: on the one hand, it’s a family tradition like Christmas. But on the other, genocide.


With that thought, I shall simply say what I’m thankful for today: my fabulous husband, who makes me laugh every day, and our cats who I love more than is socially acceptable, and our TinySheeps, and our home which is awesome and will one day be warm and beautiful.

Your turn!
