  6. I am thankful for a fridge with enough leftovers for us for another two days. After last night eating meatloaf pieces as meatballs in our spaghetti dinner, I wanted to prepare real meatballs for future meals. I am thankful this afternoon that I had the time and enthusiasm to make a double pot of meatballs and sauce, and will divide into portions for the freezer!

  7. My thanks extend back to Thursday. I am thankful for free long distance. My best friend’s mom suffered a massive heart attack while preparing Thanksgiving dinner and passed away soon after. I’m so grateful that she’s been able to call me whenever she needs to talk (and vice versa) and it doesn’t cost us anything despite being on the phone for HOURS each day. I’m in KS and she’s in CA.

    I’m also grateful for a husband that’s been so willing to share me the past few days!

  8. I am thankful that we passed our quarterly rental house inspection with flying colours. The real estate inspection gentleman told us he “never has any problems with us and the house is always clean and tidy and the gardens are beautiful”.

    Also thankful that even though we didn’t tell the real estate we had bee hives here that he saw them but didn’t say anything which means we can keep them here and still get supplied our years supply of honey from our apiarist friend who keeps the hives here. We did get prior permission to have animals here though so I suppose the bees fall into that category.

  9. How sad! Please accept condolences for you and your best friend. A sudden death is always a shock, with one of the worst parts being that the family and friends cannot say good-bye or tell the departed relative things they feeling needed saying.
    It is so good for you to “be there” with your friend on the phone. If she had a good relationship with her mother, the perhaps reassure her that her Mother knew how much she was loved. So sorry to hear this.

  10. Thank you. Her mom was AWESOME! I used to say that when I grew up, I wanted to be like her. We’re still talking a lot. My friend is still in shock, I think.
