something to be thankful for

Yes, I know that Thanksgiving is over. The leftover turkey is dwindling, the little figurines of pilgrims have been replaced by a Santa Claus, and the air is filled with Christmas carols. Thanksgiving came and went so quickly that part of me wonders if it ever happened at all. It was a whirlwind of crazy (but lovable) children, laughter, impromptu singing, and stuffing ourselves silly with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pie. Although it did leave me sick (yes, I have another cold) and exhausted for the last few weeks of class, I loved every minute of it.

However, I realized today that I never got to share with you all what I am thankful for. So, I am going to stop for a minute, pretend like it’s still November and do a bit of sharing. Instead of listing the obvious things I am thankful for, such as family, friends, food, clothing, and shelter, I thought I would list thirty silly things that I am thankful for. We all have those random things that make us happy. It’s a part of who we are. But, it’s easy to forget to be thankful for those little luxuries. So without further ado, here is something to be thankful for…
