During these difficult economic times, it might be hard to find things to be thankful for.

Here are some of mine.

I am thankful that GW Bush is not going to be POTUS much longer.

I am thankful that we have President-Elect Obama and NOT President Elect McCain OR Vice President-Elect Palin.

I am thankful the Ann Coulter’s mouth has been wired shut so I don’t have to listen to her vile mouth for at least a little while (har, har). Too bad we couldn’t say the same for some other right wing crazy commentators.

I am thankful for a place to live, food to eat, money to pay the bills, and a business that keeps on going no matter what happens in the world.

I am thankful for the unconditional love of my Border Collie puppies Tate & Belle. You can see their pictures here — My Pet’s Own Place

I’m thankful for my perfect health because I do not have health insurance. And I’m hopeful that will change, insurance wise, within the next 2 years.

I’m thankful to live in America. As someone who has travelled all over the world, I’ve learned the hard way that there is no place better than the good old USA.

I’m thankful for CHB where we can all express constructive insights into what is happening here and abroad.

I’m thankful to have seen another Thanksgiving.

What are you thankful for?
