Things I'm Thankful For
Elliot, who makes me smile even when life's trowing rotten tomatoes
My family, who would love me even if I did give up, so they keep me going
My friends, who encourage me, inspire me, and make me laugh
My home and my neighbors. I love living with the memories I have here, and knowing the people around me care
PSRS - Karl's retirement plan, and the beautiful loophole that lets me spend so much time with my son without worrying about how we'll pay for food on the table or the roof over our heads
Time - there may never be enough, but I'm so glad I have what I do of it.
Thursday morning music class and Thursday night knitting, keeping me a little social despite my isolationist tendencies
Strength, Hope, and Resilience, which make up a critical part of my character. Whether it's nurture or nature, I'm grateful to my parents for giving me these
Digital Photography for making it so easy to take a walk down memory lane, share the latest moments of our lives with friends across the country, and freedom to go ahead and shoot 100 pictures of that sunset, one of em' will turn out, and it's just pixels - nothing to waste
Indoor plumbing. No list is complete without this one
Happy Thanksgiving - I hope your own list of blessings is long, and your day is full of reminders of warmth, love, a happiness to add to the list.
