When I asked my kids what they thought TGIT stood for (Thank God it's T...) my son said, toys. My daughter thought, Thanksgiving or turkey. My son added, Twix, my favorite candy. All good guesses, though incorrect.

My daughter works hard to think of the answer before her brother because she thrives on being first, not just in birth order. My son, much less competitive, could care less if she gets the answer and shrugs as he puts a spoonful of cereal in his mouth.

"I know," my daughter says. "Twilight!"

LOL. Me, rolls eyes. Okay, okay, so I did read the series (again) recently in anticipation of the movie release (I just had to see the wedding scene). I loved the series, the plotting, the characters, despite the criticisms of others. But no, that's not what the "T" stands for.

The answer: Today, and the hope it holds. 

If I had to come up with one good thing that came from losing my mom to illness thirteen years ago and a friend more recently, it's my appreciation of my todays.

So, Thank God it's Today.

What about you? What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? And it's okay if you really are thankful for turkey or toys or taffeta  : )


  1. Taffeta--yes! :)
    Which makes me think of taffy, too, the salt water variety....
    Seriously, I have so much to be thankful for: every moment with my family...writing...fingers that can type!...and wonderful writing friends like you!

  2. Aw, same!!! Me, smiling. Thanks.


I heart comments.
