Thankfulness Day 1

November 1 is a great day to start 30 days of thankfulness.  I am going to try and post something I am thankful for each day of the month.  TRY!!!!  Which is why today's is so wonderful.

I was at Walgreens, again, and was stopped by someone commenting on my redheads, again and she (an elderly woman who looked like she was waiting for a ride) said that she had a redhead son too.  Then asked if Zane went trick-o-treating last night.  It was a short little conversation, but she was very pleasant and talked to both of them.  When we came out, she was still there.  I could tell she was looking for her ride.  I got both boys buckled and by that time she was back at the bench.  I asked if she was waiting for her ride (which was obvious) and was about to ask her if she needed to use a phone.  Well, she told me that her ride had fallen asleep and was on his way.  I made a remark on how long they were married (saw the wedding ring).  She asked me to guess.  I figured that it was for a while, so I said 60 years.  I think I surprised her, but she smiled and said "Very close, it is 67!"  We talked a little longer and her husband showed up.  She, in a joking voice, asked "should I give him a hard time or kiss him?"  I said "Both!"  I then asked/stated "Your secret must be forgiveness."  She just smiled and said "A lot of it". 

So what am I thankful for:  Forgiveness!

I love this! I don't think I can make it work every day on the blog, so I will settle for my usual wrap-up at the end of the month.

I LOVE that you've been posting more here this year. Its great fun to hear the stories behind the photos. Although, it makes me miss you more.
