Top Ten Things I am Thankful For*

Not an original exercise, but one worth doing nonetheless.

  1. I am thankful that I have an amazing, loving husband who surprises me each day with his devotion and commitment to me and our life together. Not a day goes by without him both warming my heart and making me laugh.

  2. I am thankful all of my parents are still healthy and incredibly happy.

  3. I am thankful for my sanity (on most days).

  4. I am thankful my term paper was pushed back an extra week so I don't have to do it this weekend.

  5. I am thankful that even though I gripe about being a poor graduate student, I have health insurance, money to pay bills, and I can put food on the table and still treat myself once in awhile.

  6. I am thankful for the opportunities that have led me to where I am today.

  7. I am thankful that I drive a reliable car.

  8. I am thankful for my friends and their willing acceptance of my shortcomings.

  9. I am thankful I have two well-behaved kitties and one very entertaining one.

  10. I am thankful that I am a human and not a turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving, and safe travels this weekend!

*I know it should be "Top Ten Things for Which I am Thankful", but that just doesn't have the same ring.
