Donna's 2012 Thanksgiving list

What a good year it has been!  I am thankful for so many things……

the love of a husband and two sons

the love and remembrance of a life-long friend

whenever I can be with any of my family

the people on our Meals on Wheels route

leaves of orange, gold and red underfoot

walking my neighborhood and beyond solo or with friends

exploring the Columbia River Gorge for another year and always swept away by its beauty

clean water

hot lips salvia

hummingbirds that will winter over in our yard

April in the Bay area, summer in the San Juans and the Olympics (ahhhhhh Lake Crescent)

mountains and rivers

lupines and balsamroot blooming on Rowena Plateau in the March and April

Powell’s Books

thrift stores and antique stores

blueberries, basil, and tomatoes from our garden

chicken soup

the re-election of Obama and the will of the people speaking with clarity

growing acceptance of marriage equality

getting this sent out before midnight……..
