Thanksgiving, whether celebrated in October or November, is a  time to reflect and recognize the many good things in our lives. It is a time to celebrate the blessings bestowed on our lives. Personally, my list could go on and on, as that 2017 was a very good year for the Potwins.  We are appreciative of the good fortunes in our lives,  good health, the quality of life which we enjoy, the hard work and the opportunities which have been presented to us.  Here are just a few items which we are celebrating.

Gratitude for…..

  1.  a healthy and happy family.
  2.  my chuckle factory Eoin who views a move to a new city as an adventure,  Niagara Falls taking him closer to his Granny.
  3. Granny being closer.
  4. Granny being in good health.
  5.  Granny.
  6. relaxing, sun-filled Vermont trips on the shores of Lake Champlain.
  7. good friends.
  8. a husband who can coordinate a family move with his eyes closed.
  9. supportive staff who made the move easy. Do you want to know of a good pizza joint? Well, let me suggest….( I do adore Bob.)
  10.  Bob.
  11. BEA  book expo shows happening in NYC.
  12. for new office furniture.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to my community. I love books, reading with my son, properly placed apostrophes, canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
