    having something to eat (unless I was fast- ing); the bills, some- how, got paid, and I am able to help some- one else from time to time. I am thankful for

    having good neighbors who seem to really appreciate me. I am thankful for being almost 81, and still able to write this col- umn. I am thankful for you, who read it each week, sometimes letting me know your thoughts, and for the editors who think it is worth publishing. I am thankful for my

    family; that over the past year, I wasn’t awakened with a sad phone call informing me that someone had died. I am thankful that,

    with all its ills, I live in America, where some of us are yet trying to make this a better country. I am thankful that I didn’t wake up to the bombs of war bursting around me. I am thankful that I

    can see — even the weeds in my yard and to behold the beauty of the tiny flowers they bear. I am thank- ful that I can hear the crisp and melodic song of the birds in the oak tree in my backyard. I am thankful for won-

    derful memories; for being blessed to be a mom, not only to my biological children, but to the many others that I have “mothered” over the years. I am thankful for the

    person or persons (they wish to remain anony- mous), who for the past five or six years, have paid for my car to be washed — in my yard. And thanks to Mr. Peter,

    who comes religiously every Saturday to wash it, never giving away the identity of those who pay him to do so. I am thankful to my late

    son Rick’s friends — Greg Goree and his son Rodney, Dan Brown and Harry Daniels — who decided it was time for my house to be painted and did the job without charging me a cent. They even bought the paint. Most of all, I am thank-

    ful for this new year; this

    new beginning. And I am thankful for you.

    DOCUMENTARY SCREENING Trinity Cathedral invites

    the community to its Epi- phany Supper and Movie at 5 p.m. Sunday in Cathe- dral Hall, 464 NE 16th St, Miami. Two new groups at the

    will be followed by the screening of the James Franco-exec- utive produced documentary, “Voices Beyond The Wall: Twelve Love poems From The Murder Capital of the World.” The documentary
