Taylor: Are you okay, Merci?
Merci: Yes. This is Thankful Thursday and we haven't posted much these last few weeks, so I'm thinking about something I'm particularly thankful for from last week.
Taylor: And what would that be?
Merci: That Jan is still in one piece and can still fix our meals and take us for walks and -
Taylor: Of course she's in one piece and she always does those things.
Merci: But what if she got bashed in the head by a falling tree limb and her brains were scrambled?
Taylor: I don't think we need to worry about that. I haven't left the house since I arrived over a year ago and I haven't seen a single falling tree limb in here yet.
Merci: Not in the house, silly! In the yard, Don't you remember last week when Jan was working on some of the bushes in the yard and she came inside to get a drink of water ...
... and returned to find this. See how long that branch is! And it came from up high in the tree. Way high.
Taylor: Oh, yeah, I remember. Jan went to the neighbor for help moving their tree branch off our lawn.
Merci: What if Jan had been standing there when it came down?
Taylor: She would be shorter?
Merci: Well, that too, but I was thinking about how forgetful she is already. What if she couldn't remember to feed us?
Taylor: On the bright side, what if she forgets she has already fed us and feeds us again?
Merci: I'm glad we had this little talk, Taylor. I feel so much better now!
