It’s that time of year again, a time to consider the blessings in our lives and to think about what we can be thankful for.
This year, there’s being able to have seen the Cubs win a World Series in my lifetime. Also, I had the opportunity to see a truly creative and outstanding Broadway musical last week, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. It was incredible, and beautiful. I think that most women who go to the show expect to identify with Sonya or Natasha, but I was drawn to Pierre. He and I are kindred spirits, I think. It doesn’t help that I also am an admirer of Josh Groban, who played Pierre. Here’s Pierre’s monologue song, “Dust and Ashes” – I literally wept in my seat during this part. He might as well have been singing about me.
Otherwise, I really don’t have anything except the usual, which is being relatively healthy, not being homeless, and still being alive. I guess that’s better than the alternative.
If you are with family or friends this year, I hope you are able to smile and enjoy yourself. If you are alone, I hope that you are at peace with it. And for our international friends who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving today, have a good day anyway. 🙂
