Simple Gifts

In which I declare for whom and what I am thankful (the short list):

My daughter, the super.
My son, the one who is alive.
My son, the one who is dead.
The 406 days that I had with Elijah.
The 406 gifts that Elijah gave me.
I am still alive to raise my children.
The health of my family.
My mother.
Memories of my father.
Dh.
My family, in blood and in law.
My friends.
Oceana Blue Banana - the best of all the great neurotic cats.
Warmth.
Breasts, and their generous nutritional miracle.
Life.
