I have so many things to be thankful for. First the people.
My three amazing children, Ian, Jared and Reilly. Brilliant, talented, funny, fun. I can never say how proud I am of them. How much joy they bring into my life.
The continuing recovery of my father, William. He has been through so much the last months. The return of The Grand Guru of Lahore to FB has been a delight to us all!
The astounding Linda! How she has gotten through everything the last months no one knows. But the love that flows toward her every day shows how so many feel about her.
All of you, my friends, both near and far. I couldn't even begin to make a list, there are too many. All the love I have felt through the tribulations of this year has helped so much.
And, the love of my life, the Fabulous Lizzie Crowe! Her love and strength has brought me through this year. Her brilliance and laughter light up my existence every day.
The stuff that isn't people.
Helvetica and Calibri, two of the sweetest, loving, brattiest cats ever. You have seen the photos of Helvetica watching over me when I was sick and hurt. They are as delightful of beasts as I have ever known.
This marvelous, old, rickety house that we live in. We walked in when we were looking for place to move, and knew instantly that we needed to live here. It reminds me so much of our house on 31st street.
The music that is the center of my life. This has been such a year. Two Pegasus Awards. 20+ shows. So many new friends made. Cheshire Moon is the band that I have always wanted.
I love this life I am living. Even with the pain and illness and financial struggle, this is the best time of my life. Here is to many more thankful days.
