Giving thanks–take two; grammar, punctuation and meaning

It is often the case that with a little time, I reread something I wrote, something I wrote and edited even– and realize that there are some small (or would you call them large?) grammatical or punctuation errors which confuse or even obscure the intended meaning of the piece I wrote.  Looking back at my very brief gesture in the direction of Thanksgiving– a post written very late last night, I realize that there was one such error.  The intended meaning of the post entitled just a very few things for which I give thanks was really more along the lines of “Just a very few of the many things for which I give thanks; a list, not exhaustive”.  I did not mean that there are just a very few things for which I feel thankful.  Which is, upon re-reading, what I think I wrote.
