Boyfriend and I will spend Thanksgiving with our cat in our new home. It will be just the three of us and we will eat Salmon rather than turkey. I am looking forward to a few days of relaxation, hopefully to blog a little as well, as Boyfriend and I have continued to settle in.
For the most part, Thanksgiving will be like many other weekend days, but it also gets me thinking. Times are changing, along with society, its view, and the way of life in America. I am thankful to be an American and thankful that I live in this country, while I know people who no longer share these feelings. I am thankful that I still have freedom of speech, at least for now, and that I can browse the internet for REAL information. I am thankful that we can express our feelings, and our disagreements, even the opinions with which I disagree.
On a personal level, I am thankful for our new home. I am thankful for the wonderful partnership Boyfriend and I have, and I am thankful for our sweet cat. I hope that Thanksgiving can come and go without fanfare, violence, or other types of chaos. I hope that Americans will think about what Thanksgiving is supposed to be about, and that they will appreciate the freedoms we have.
