Things For Which I Am Thankful  
Usually when I post here, it's because I'm unhappy about something. Today on the American holiday of Thanksgiving, I think it's appropriate to use this space to list those things for which I am very thankful.

  • My two sisters: Like with all families, we've had our good times and bad. But no matter what, we are here for each other. I cannot imagine my life without them in it.

  • My six dogs: They are rays of sunshine on four paws. Yes there are times they annoy me but the love and acceptance they give freely makes it worth every poop inside the house.

  • My friends, IRL and virtual: It is reassuring to me that I have friends to whom I can turn when I need guidance, help, reassurance that it's "not just me," love and support. Thank you all for being here when I need you.

  • Going back to school: I've learned a lot about subjects which were a total mystery to me previously. I'm grateful for the chance to return to school even when it's on my very last nerve.

  • My job in the tutoring center: It's a great job where I am afforded the opportunity to help and guide students who truly want to understand. I'm also very lucky that it is a job that pays pretty well but if I need time off, I'm never given grief over it.

  • The roof over my head: Our house is warm, dry, and filled with love. I know that many people aren't so lucky and I never want to take for granted that we are blessed with a safe place to live.

  • The food we just finished eating: I know we should never take for granted the food we have to eat. So many people have no idea where their next meal will come from, we're blessed to have more food than we can eat in one sitting.

What are you especially thankful for? Won't you let us know?

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends and Happy (almost) weekend to everyone not celebrating the holiday today!

I am thankful that I got to meet you online, because you are amazing.

And you have good taste. (I hope I remember how to post a pic!).

This icon *points* is a 'coin' that I stuff in my bra every day and I try to mentally say something I am grateful every day when I get ready for work, and then again when I get ready for bed. And it's things like a job to go to, a roof, friends, and Eggs that get mentioned.

You are frequently on my mind.

I am very grateful to have you, sure I'm late, but yes, I'm grateful.

Did you need to know that there's usually a coin in my bra?
