I believe in recognizing one's good fortunes and being thankful for the tangibles as well as the intangibles in my life. J and I give thanks for these riches everyday, but sometimes I think you need to say it out loud to a larger public. Don't worry; I'm not going to give you a list of my blessings, but I do want to give thanks for one in particular today: Friends and their friendship.

For a couple of months now, I've had a situation weighing on my mind, a complication in the States that was fraught with a variety of dangers (envisage possible financial ruin and broken trust and you've about got it). I finally had a way out of the situation, but because of being overseas, the whole thing was going to take me at least a month more to resolve. And then I talked to rabiagale, and like the sweetheart she is, she offered to place a phone call for me (one I couldn't make from abroad) and passed along personal information that I wouldn't trust just anyone with. And ta-dum! The whole mess is on its way to being resolved, all because of the generosity of someone who might could be classified as a stranger, since we've never met, but whom I call a friend.

Thanks so much, Rabia!
