Happy Thanksgiving, and welcome to Friday Fictioneers! We are a community of writers from around the world who post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog. Please visit Rochelle’s blog for more information…and join us if you wish!
This week’s photo is by fellow writer Randy Mazie. Thank you, Randy!
I have been absent awhile, focusing on my health, recovery from surgery and the various successes and failures of physical therapy. I hope I am moving forward, and I am thankful for the medical professionals who make that happen.
I am thankful for the friends and relatives who love me and whom I love. I am thankful for Olga, who is making delicious turkey tomorrow.
I am thankful for the freedom to think, talk, write, tweet and post anything I want—even if, most days, I am too tired to do so.
I am thankful for my faith which, while shaken many times, continues to hold a beacon of hope. Can we live very long without hope? I don’t think so. The human spirit wants to believe we can continue to evolve, to create something better, a better version of ourselves and of the world.
I am thankful for you, dear readers, for your caring comments and lovely “Likes.” You put a smile on my face! I hope my story will do the same for you.

I hate Thanksgiving!
Okay, what I really hated was LAST Thanksgiving, when my boyfriend came home from college and broke up with me.
My friends had warned me that our relationship was doomed. He went away to college, not just to learn about history or political science, but to learn about the world and, especially, to meet new people.
And he did.
My cousin brought two of his studly study group members to Thanksgiving dinner this year. I am currently dating both of them.
The future is looking much brighter now.
I love Thanksgiving!
