Tuesday in town, a reporter from the Inquirer and Mirror approached us and asked if we wanted to answer the question of the week and be in the newspaper. How fun, we thought. Of course, this week’s question was, what are you thankful for?
The kindness of strangers:the stranger who rescued a favorite stuffed dog almost lost on Orange Street; and the stranger who stopped on the street to help move Nora’s new (massive) armoire into our house.…The armoire itself and the amazing deal I got on it ($96!).
I could have said any one of those things, but I didn’t. What I told the reporter, within seconds of being asked, was that I am thankful for this man.This man who works incredibly hard so I can have every other thing for which I’m thankful. And who, when asked what he’s thankful for, says he’s thankful for Nantucket and for his job because it lets me stay home with Nora.How did I get so lucky?
