|The Pettits' high desert Thanksgiving table.|
Although it's still cold outside, it's unbelievably beautiful in the high desert. I got up today and called the lovely McCarley sisters to wish them happy Thanksgiving. I had to leave voicemails. I think Dr. Mc and #1 son-in-law Nick are in Austin to celebrate Thanksgiving with his extended family, but I have no idea what Sweetness is doing. Wherever they are and whatever they are doing, I hope both my daughters remember to say they are thankful for their mom today. It's a longstanding joke and tradition.
Today I'm creating thanks for my many blessings. I'm thankful for a wonderful family and fun friends. I'm thankful for a very handsome, supportive and loving husband. I'm thankful for paying and pro-bono clients who inspire me to be creative and innovative. And among other things, I'm so thankful that Mr. B and I have a house in Santa Fe where we can escape the craziness of holidays and spend time together counting our many blessings.
