I Am Thankful for

Thanksgiving was yesterday in the US, the traditional time to gather with family and friends, eat too much, watch football and rest up for all the shopping deals that are only available at an obscenely early hour of Friday morning. And it's also a time to sit down and ponder all the good things going on in life. So, I am thankful for (in no particular order) . . .

My wonderful family including my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, my grandparents and my aunts, uncles, cousins, cousins-in-law and their kids. I live for every chance to see you.

A place to live.

My friends, who support me, tell me what I want to hear, and give me a kick in the ass when I need it.

My "virtual" friends who provide laughs, pictures of the pretties and the opportunity to talk about TV a lot (and Supernatural even more than "a lot".)

My snuggly cats, Luke and Leia, and my silly beta fish, Osiris.

My health.

The men and woman in our armed forces who volunteer to serve this country, making sacrifices I can't imagine. Be safe and come home soon!

My home, from my country, down to my state, hometown to my house. I can't imagine living anywhere else, and I've had the opportunity to consider it.

Knitting. Wool has provided me with the opportunity to be creative, express my love and affection for people in handmade gifts, meet like-minded people in the real world and the virtual.

A job that not only pays the bills and gives me an opportunity to travel the country and visit family and friends, but also allows me to share some family pride. (I work for my mother's company.)

There's ten things off the top of my head that I'm grateful for. There are so many more.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
