I thought I was the only person in the world who didn't like pumpkin pie. I am grateful that my husband's cataract surgery was so successful. I am grateful we were able to move close to family after I retired and I am getting to know my nieces and nephews. I am also amazed and delighted that our 11 year old cat (caught when she was a very pregnant stray and kept even though she ran from everyone) has suddenly decided to be a lap cat. Small joys keep things in balance. I am particularly glad authors keep writing great books for me to read


I'm grateful for the wonderful crime fiction community and how we support each other.

I'm grateful my family is physically okay after the fires up north.

(And my mom hates pumpkin pie with a passion, too.)

I am grateful for so many things that I took for granted for most of my life, things like clean running water, indoor plumbing, heating and air-conditioning. I'm grateful for decent health insurance. I'm grateful that my aged car gets me to and from work every day. I'm grateful for my job. I'm grateful for all the friends who helped out earlier this year when I had a couple of minor surgeries. (One of them brought chocolate chip cookies!) I am grateful that our parents gifted all of us with a love for reading. I am grateful for our family's weird sense of humor!

I am grateful that I live in an area of Houston that did not flood or lose power during Harvey. I am grateful that I inherited my mother's sense of humor. I am grateful for the ability to read and the love to do so. I do not like pumpkin anything.


Susan, those are good gratitudes. I agree about the small joys. I think they keep us sane. And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin pie!


I'm glad your family is okay, too. I've always thought fire had to be the worst of the disasters. And it's great to know your mom doesn't like pumpkin pie, too.


Deb, those sound like really great things to be grateful for! Bringing chocolate chip cookies after surgery is surely the mark of a true friend.


J.A., I'm so glad that you didn't flood or lose power during Harvey as well! And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin -- I had no idea there were so many of us in this minority. I'm also grateful for my love of reading. I don't know how people live without it.
