Giving thanks.

I like to think that I am thankful everyday, not just on the fourth Thursday of November each year.

But, because today is Thanksgiving and it seems to be a tradition of listing what you're thankful for today, I thought I would too.

And, honestly, I think it's a good habit to get into- listing all that you're thankful for- it makes you more aware of how fortunate you really are and therefore changes your mindset.. but now I'm getting off topic.

So, in no order of importance, here's just a smidgen of what I'm thankful for this year.

1.) That I did in deed make it through this past year. It was a rough one and honestly a little touch and go for a while.

2.) God.

3.) My family and friends.. I'm truly blessed in this regard

4.) A job. It may not be my favorite, but it's a job and it pays my bills.

5.) My health. My lungs hate me, but that pales in comparison to anything else.

6.) All the material things that make my life so much easier- my reliable car, nice clothes, my iBook, my cell phone.. all possible through my job so I guess this is a continuation of #4

7.) My ability and the freedom to get an education

8.) That I live in a country that believes in certain inalienable rights- the right to vote, to free speech, to elect our government officials, to be innocent until proven guilty, to bear arms, to do as I please with my body.. etc.

9.) Food .. I love it!

10.) My family's health.

11.) Wine .. specifically Barefoot Moscato <3

12.) That I'm so loved and supported in all that I do by amazingly awesome people everywhere I go.

I'd love to know what you're thankful for though!

P.S. I hope your turkey came out good! I can't wait for more leftovers tomorrow!
