I am Thankful. Today is Christmas Eve. It is bright and sunny outside after a week of rain. I went out in the backyard where there is a ten gallon flower pot standing empty, or it was the last time I was outside.. The ten gallon pot is full to the brim. After 7 months of drought conditions I declare California is no longer in a drought! I declare thankfulness that the presents that didn't get here on time will be represented by pictures or notes. I declare thankfulness: the last of the present procurement will require some time but no money, They will be poems written by yours truly.
And we look forward to them and are thankful as well. It is even sunny and not supposed to rain until tomorrow here in Eugene, Oregon, so we are thankful for that as well. Happy Holidays to you and all on Hubpages!
