Things that I’m thankful for

Rounding out this holiday weekend, it seemed only appropriate that I do this type of post. So, things that I’m thankful for:

Family and friends – It goes without saying yet it’s never said enough. I have terrific family and terrific friends and you couldn’t ask for more.

A good job – After spending the summer "off" (involuntarily, of course), I’m really grateful that I was fortunate enough to get a job, especially one that I like.

My blogs, and blogging – You might not know it the way I’ve been slacking on this blog, but between this and my two other blogs I’m thankful I have the opportunity and outlet to write and participate in this grand experiment. So far it’s been good to me.

The holidays – I really enjoy this time of year (despite how I complain about hanging lights, or things that go against my own personal sense of tradition) and I’m thankful for everything the holidays bring: vacation, good food, family get-togethers, gift giving, re-living the holidays vicariously through the kids.

Little things, like beer (which I even get to write about and earn a little money for), books (I’ll never run out of things to read), the internet (which I have some ability to tap into), health (not such a little thing, but something I take for granted far too much I suspect).

And of course, I’m thankful for these most interesting times we’re living in.
