A Facebook diary, compiled from months of status updates and random notes written by an accidental humorist. “Today, I am Thankful for…” is presented as a journal of some very tender miscellaneous ramblings that punctuate a whole lot of very funny, transcripted conversations between Oregonian Jerilyn O’Brien Stone and her family, friends, coworkers, and even her special-needs students.
This compilation of humor, with the sheer wit of the repartee between Jerilyn O'Brien Stone and all the people she touches, represents a treasure trove of light-hearted banter and, as a bonus, frankly, some good lessons in parenthood, spousehood, and personhood. There are also some very powerful passages included, scattered here and there, that will generate tears for many readers, who will be better people for having read them.
Jeri is the mother of a profoundly disabled son—her oldest child—and two very bright daughters, one teen and one pre-teen. Her children and husband clearly bring tremendous pride and pleasure to her world, though her heart has room for still more. So Jeri is also a tremendously caring, highly-skilled teacher of special-needs children. It seems to be the guardianship and edification of these children that fills that last compartment of her huge heart with joy and purpose.
