Giving Thanks belatedly

This is late (C is sick again and yesterday was a mixed blessing)

But this is what I'm thankful for this year:

* (I whisper this one quietly lest I jinx anything) I'm thankful this is Little T's first Thanksgiving where he's not on chemo and steroids.
* how Little T smiles hugely and exclaims "Mama!" whenever he sees me (even if I've only been gone for five minutes)
* the way that Little T and Special K make each other laugh and laugh
* Little T can finally talk enough to tell me what he wants and even occasionally say please, thank you and sorry
* Special K is now a reader
* the startling insights Special K offers on a range of subjects.
* how both kids and my husband love to cuddle and snuggle
* my extended family who are warm, funny and good to spend time with
* my dear RL friends who have come through for me time and again
* our nanny who both kids love and also drives us around and cleans the house. We're very lucky to have her.
* the online community here that has offered me support and friendship. My dialog with you has really enabled me to start taking better care of myself
* my first published work
* our good fortune to have enough money, C has a good job with good health insurance that we don't have to worry despite Little T's large medical expenses
* last but certainly not least that I can and do talk about everything with my best friend and husband C
