30 Days of Thankfulness – 11/15/22

For the month of November, I’m going to continue with my habit of posting things I am thankful for. Thankfulness is different from happiness, and I don’t want to conflate the two.

Today I’m thankful for Social Security and Medicare. I might have chafed occasionally through the years at the 7.25% that came out of every paycheck, but now, in my old age, it helps to keep Big Al and me in the manner to which we have become accustomed. It’s not enough to live on, but it makes our savings and military retirement enough to enjoy our age. On this day when the eagle flies again (an old military term for payday) I give thanks for those lovely deposits in our savings and checking accounts.
