Guest Post: A Day of Thx by Kristi Ashcroft


Dear dog,

Thank you for going to my husband’s side of the bed and nuzzling your cold, wet nose into his face this morning.  I respect your judgment in these matters, and if you believe he’s the one to take you for your walk today, I’ll happily enjoy my extra few minutes of sleep guilt-free.

Dear October sunshine,

Thank you for showing up so often this year.  We’ve enjoyed many extra picnics, park trips and bike rides as a result of your generosity.

Dear lemon-flavoured fat-free Greek yogurt,

Thank you for your utterly convincing portrayal of dessert, such that my taste buds and tummy come away completely fooled.

Dear Julia Donaldson,

Thank you for writing books that I never tire of reading aloud to my kids.

Dear sons,

Thank you for getting through an entire dinner without complaining about something on your plate.

Dear sons,

Thank you for simply bathing and brushing your teeth and getting on with life/bedtime.

Dear sons,

Thank you for staying in your own comfortable, warm beds ALL night!

Dear sons,

Thank you for being you.  You’ve given me my best job ever.

Dear husband,

Thank you for everything, every day.

  1. A charcoal barbecue grill presents a lot of strengths more than other varieties.
    Ex smokers, who grew insomniac, now report that they are experiencing a full 8
    hour. It is ready to cook when a dry coating forms on the outside of the salmon pieces.

  2. If you know that your family issues aren’t in dire need of immediate attention, try
    to set up a time after work or on weekends to fix them as soon as you can.
    When creating the chart, the number of the father
    is always two-times that the number given to the child.

    Possible dimension arrangements: 11 to 12 feet in width, 15 to 16
    feet in length (165 to 192 sf).
