Thankful Thursday: November 8, 2012

It's Thursday

With the election
I feel like November is even wilder than usual.

I'm glad the advertising is over, grateful for a nation I love, and hopeful that we can channel the American spirit within us to improve and work better together than ever before.
For more on my thoughts from Tuesday, here's my post.

And for this last week...

I think I'd like to hear the story of the icky gooey spider that lived inside a clam sometime.

You know, kids come up with some great stories sometimes. Check out Kid Snippets. They have a lot of nonsense stories from kids, acted out by adults.
