So much to be thankful for

I have been thinking about this post for a while - how thankful I am for my beautiful and solid bike, which takes me wherever I want to go. I'm thankful for the clever shed my landlord has given me for parking, and the spacious and ideal parking shed they've installed at my office.

I had more I wanted to be thankful for here, but I can't really remember now. My dad was in a bad crash on Tuesday night, he's ok and his passenger is going to be ok. That's all I can think about now, and I'm so very thankful they survived. Internet world, would you spare a moment for a [wish/prayer] for Jim's full recovery? He has all my thoughts.

Please go hug your family and tell them how much you love them.

Have a happy Thanksgiving.

EDITED TO ADD: Jim is going to be ok, thank you all so much for your good wishes.

I check your blog regularly from London UK. I just wanted to send my best wishes to your father and his passenger. I hope they make a full recovery very soon.

Yes, the simple things of family and friends are what we should always be grateful for.

All my best always

I'm glad your dad and his passenger weren't badly hurt and I hope they have a quick and full recovery. Your post is a great reminder of how important it is to be thankful for the people who matter to us while we still have them.
