You may not know it, I like to flatter myself that I hide it well, but the truth is, I'm quite a crank.
Not surprised? Oh well, I guess I don't grumble and whine with the grace I thought I did.
BUT! There is a point to this and HOPE. You see, I'm trying to overcome this slight character flaw with a little bit o' gratitude. And I think November is a good time to start. Not just because of Thanksgiving, but also because I need a little positivity to get me through another pitiless Minnesota winter.
And, having just knocked Minnesota (did you notice the discouraging word "pitiless"?), I think I'll start with how thankful I am to be here...
I'm grateful for the chance to live in the Father-land and get back to my roots.
I appreciate that David is going to a top rated school in his field.
It's exciting to try something other than what I'd always known.
And I LOVE the the fall colors...
