Being Thankful

I have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, although I have learned to be thankful on a daily basis -- as I work with the elderly and the poor who have so many challenges getting through a day at home, I am thankful not to have to worry about how I will pay for medicine or food or fuel to stay warm.

I am also thankful for this blog and all of the Connecticut bloggers....except maybe...(no, I'll be good, it's a holiday weekend). And I am incredibly thankful for the number of Connecticut democrats who got involved this year -- registered for the first time, changed affiliation from un- to democrat, or woke up and paid more attention to this election than they might in other years.

I am thankful that the Dems have a majority in both the Senate and the House as of January, and with that, the opportunity for very real oversight of this administration.

I'm thankful for CTBob, who lets me play here, and to you, our readers, for making it worth our time to post (and Bob's time to product such amazing videos!) I'm also thankful for the long holiday weekend, so we can both recover from the craziness of the past 5 months and spend time with people we love and we didn't spend enough time with during those 5 months.

Have a safe and peaceful holiday. And tell us what you are thankful for.

Mmmm....the food is cooking downstairs, and it smells delicious. Football on the TV. Perfect.

Kirby, thanks for everything you do. I couldn't be more pleased with the work you've done since the primary, and I look forward to collaborating with you to help reach the goal of good government for all.

It's been a great year, and things are definitely looking up.

State Representative Bob Adams has a certain ring to it.

I agree with ctkeith (on so many things).

Saw on DU the idea of taking back OUR flag by flying it on the day the new Congress is sworn in. Is this something we could get involved with? We have a street full of Democrats and I'd love to have them all flying the flag. Even the republicans could also be persuaded.

There are so many things I can be thankful for beginning with my family and friends. I’m also thankful for a year that gave me the greatest experience of volunteering for someone I could truly expect; one where new lasting friendships have been formed and one that made me believe a small group of people could make a difference. I’m thankful for being introduced to a real active CT blogshere that gives me hope for our future! Even though Ned didn’t win his Senate seat, it was his victory on August 8th that woke up the rest of the nation and gave us a new government – a journey well worth the trip!

Wow, nice Freudian slip, Anonymous; obviously, you wish Joe was "gone".

Your subconscious is showing.
