So much

I have so much to be thankful for--let me begin by being thankful for you and thank you for reading my blog and being there when I need you!

Every Thanksgiving our friends Joonghwa and Soojung send us beautiful flowers. I met Joonghwa when he spent a summer at the UO after finishing his military service in Korea. That was probably 15 years ago. We've stayed in touch as Joonghwa finished first a Master's degree at Michigan State and then a doctorate at the University of Missouri and as he started his academic career at MTSU. Then he met Soojung at an academic conference and they married a few years ago, and now have a beautiful boy Jaden (Jihoo). I am thankful that I was able to spend some time with Jaden in March in Boston.

Of course I'm thankful for the health of Calypso and his mom Tinkerbell. And I'm thankful Ann loves them both as much as I do. Calypso is a special guy and I love seeing him. Yesterday he was in rare form, pronking around the field as he tried to get someone to play with him.

And of course, most thankful for my family on the couch with me right now--my incredible husband Tim and my wonderful pups Comet and Pilot. And Captain MacGregor (the bird) and Jessie Cat (the cat, of course). We miss our Stella cat every day.

Enjoy a day surrounded by your loves!
