There are always so many things we should be thankful for every day (not just during the holiday season), but Thanksgiving is, of course, a good time to share these things with our friends and family. So, I’ll take the opportunity today to list the things I am most thankful for.
Today, I am thankful for…
… my love and best friend J, who swept me off my feet so many years ago and who gets me and still makes me smile every day.
… rain (that is helping to put out the fires) and for a return to healthy air quality (which we so often take for granted).
… being healthy, for being able to keep up with running and races, and the unexpected joy it gives me.
… friends that I have been there through the ups and downs of life. They’ll never know just how much I appreciate them.
… my family and as always, I wish I could spend the day with them.
… hot coffee, fresh bread, fuzzy socks, and warm blankets. For balls of yarn, stamps, and paper.
… good books, movies that make me think and laugh, and music that touches my heart.
… opportunities to learn and grow, even if it’s not always easy. For situations that test my patience and temper and that make me stronger in the long run. For ‘aha’-moments and the ability to move on.
And, last but not least, I am thankful for YOU, my dear readers. I appreciate that you take the time to come here and connect with me.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends. I hope you’re all having a lovely holiday weekend.
