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.
