I suppose I should encourage you all to discuss what you’re thankful for in the comments, but that’s probably pretty overworked this time of year. Save that stuff up for murmuring over your mashed potatoes and gravy.

Instead, what would you like to be thankful for next year? It might be fun to revive the list in a year and see which wishes came true. Or it just might be fun to wish wildly, shoot for the stars.

Me?

The first thing I’ll be thankful for is that I’m still around to give thanks.

And then — and let’s get the with the mushy stuff out of the way — I hope I’ll be again thankful for having such a fantastic family and dear friends, everywhere. I expect I’ll still be thankful I worked my *ss off for Tester and that I live in Montana and that I have an open and eclectic neighborhood…good health…lots of food…and that the Lions will actually be a decent team to watch for a change.

…but I also hope to thankful for having seen W and Cheney doing the perp walk on CNN, for Sean Hannity’s show being canceled, and for troop withdrawals from Iraq. I hope to thankful for a gripping battle in the AL East with the Yankees coming in third and missing the playoffs. I hope to be thankful for finding such a great child-care provider after our current one leaves in December. I hope to be thankful for a mild summer, not the (as of late) usual carbon-emission smoky scorcher. I hope to be thankful for having my first novel make it to all the best-seller lists and be nominated for the Pulitzer. (And yes, nomination would be enough.)

You?
