HAPPY THANKSGIVING, DEAR ONES!
Here is your little Italian lesson for the day:
SONO GRATA = I AM GRATEFUL
(Unless you are a boy, of course, in which case it is: SONO GRATO)
Maybe we should all learn how to say I AM GRATEFUL, in all the languages we can? Right? Because isn't that the sum of all human grace — to begin and end by merely giving thanks? How wonderful it would be to be universally fluent in thankfulness all over the world!
So here's an idea:
You guys are clever and global. Whatever languages you all happen to speak, please teach the rest of us today how to say: I AM GRATEFUL in your chosen language.
And if you really want to go crazy, post a selfie here of you holding up a sign saying: I AM GRATEFUL in any language you like — just as I have done. (As you can see from my photo, bed-head and morning-face are totally acceptable on this page.)
I think that would be awesome!
Today I give extra thanks to you all for being part of my life — you beautiful souls, you.
SONO GRATA A TUTTI VOI = I am grateful for all of you.
ps — I hope you remembered to thaw out the turkey…
