Just a short one today. Paul is home, our family is once again whole and I am deeply thankful. It’s days like this that I realize how lucky I am…that I have family and friends who love me, that I have a hubby who is my soulmate, that I am able to live this amazing life on the road, that the people I meet (& those who read this blog!) enrich my life and become part of my nomadic tribe, that I am able to enjoy nature’s glory everyday, that I am healthy…oh, the list goes on.

I am truly thankful for it all!

As a little side-note it also happens to be my birthday today. Not that I really want to draw attention to my advancing age (after around the age of 25 that no longer holds quite the same allure for us gals), but because this day is rather historic. The next time Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and my B-Day coincide will be year 79811, a mere 77,798 years from now. By that time I will be long gone into the spiritual realm or well into many of my future lives, depending on what you believe, and I can’t even conceive of what the earth may or may not look like. Food for thought….

Here’s wishing you all a wonderful day. May you have many things to be thankful for!

    Nina, before I even finished what you posted I was going to write a note to thank you for your beautiful expression of gratitude. Then I read further and realized we share the same birthday also… though not the same year — far from it. I’m 79 today and thankfully living a contented, rich, healthy life, which includes RV travel. I wish you and Paul the best in the new year, and thank you for your always upbeat, grateful blog posts. ~ Chuck
