I'm Thankful

After visiting my family in the countryside of Southwest Virginia..this blog is dedicated to that which I am thankful..
I am thankful for my family..even through its dysfunctional moments..I am thankful for distractions in the countryI am thankful for those that feel the need to protect the land from said distractions..no matter how silly it may seem..I am thankful my kids aren't particularly 'stealthy' and don't seem to know which direction the aforementioned distraction came from...or went.I am thankful my parents have a mini horse lot so the hounds can play and not be cooped up the whole holiday.I am thankful Henry is not aware he is 10 years old
I am thankful for friends who come visit while I am in town..only to pay more attention to the minis..they are darn cute.
I am thankful that my 'not cat tolerant' hound Dana pretends not to be during the holidaysI am thankful my dogs allow me to do stupid things to them during the holidaysAnd I am thankful Henry not only had a wonderful first road trip..but that he was well receivedAnd even seemed to enjoy playing dishes with my nephew Boone.
And I am thankful to all my blog readers..I look forward to posting entries and I hope you enjoy reading them.
Now..bring on the Christmas cheer b/c Santa is coming to town!

It is that time of year. Looks like everyone had a great time in the country. Dogs, horses, cat, and people.
