Thursday Thirteen - Round 6
So it's Thanksgiving Day again! Where does the year go? I swear it was just summer, yet here we are again in the midst of the holiday fuss and rush. Sheesh!
Even though I'm in a very bitter mood right now, it is that time of year to be thoughtful and thankful. And maybe it will do me some good to really think about all I have to be thankful for. At least I can hope it will. So, here goes...
Thirteen Things I Am Thankful For
I am always and ever so thankful for WJ... he is one awesome kid!
I am thankful for my parents... even when we don't see eye to eye.
I am thankful for good friends... I don't think I need to name them here. Hopefully they already know how amazing, inspiring, supportive and incredible they are!
I am thankful for my health... yeah, I know, it sounds cliche. But really I am!
I am thankful for still having a roof over my head... and one that doesn't seem to be leaking anymore.
I am thankful for music... as it makes me smile, makes me cry, and often expresses my deepest thoughts and feeling when I can't seem to find the right words.
I am thankful for Jake... yes, my dog! He is my security and my companion while also being a pain in my ass.
I am thankful for my independent nature... without it I would have crumbled.
I am thankful for technology... without it, I would be cut off from most all of the friends I hang with daily. And my hand would definitely have cramps in it.
I am thankful for my Barnes & Noble membership card... it not only saves me money on my book addiction, it saves me money on my Starbuck's fix as well.
I am thankful for meeting new people... I have at least 4 new people I've met in the past year that I now call friends.
I am thankful for my freedom of speech... I can choose what or what not to talk about, and what forum(s) I choose to communicate.
I am thankful for life... through all it's ups and downs, challenges and rewards, ironies and coincidences, I am thankful!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
