That the Viking from my past found me when we both needed each other, and that we've we’ve survived sixteen years together.
That my step-daughter and her husband recently bought a house in the same town we live in--I love them both dearly.
That I’m still in pretty good heath at eighty-three and that the docs have found a way to keep my vision good enough so that I can see to write and to read.
That the vet diagnosed and operated on our calico cat, Kinko’s cancer soon enough so she’s cured and still healthy at fifteen.
That I live across the street from my beloved Lake Superior.
That the Viking and I still have some old friends left alive and well that we can visit with.
That I have friends I’ve never met in person, but know and like from authors’ lists on the Internet.
That I still enjoy everything I’m able to do and am able to leave behind what I no longer can do with regrets, but no complaining.
That the world I know and love still hasn’t fallen apart.
And last, but not least, I'm thankful that I still have people I can wish happy birthday to--like Ginger, whose birthday is tomorrow!

Note from Ginger: Jane is an inspiration and a role model. I'm so impressed by her and I'm honored to have her on my blog. I want to be like her when I grow up. *lol*
