i was about to type “it’s a bit early for this”, but i quickly realized that’s just hogwash. we should take time more often than once a year to reflect on what we’re thankful for.
i’m thankful for meeting my best friend and the love of my life, albeit under stressful and almost unmanageable circumstances. i’m thankful for a loving mom and her partner, george. i’m thankful for an understanding family who didn’t judge me for getting a divorce, but offered help and condolences.
i’m thankful for a billion friends who i know would (and have!) drop everything and do anything for me if i needed it. i’m thankful for having a house that i love, and two adorable dogs that go nuts every day i get home, and a cat that practically sleeps on our heads at night.
i’m thankful (even tho i don’t always act like it) that i have a providing job at a company that doesn’t sell oil, fast food, or debt.
i’m thankful that i’m healthy and able, that i can bike almost anywhere i want and feel free doing so. i’m thankful that i can afford to eat out as frequently as i do. i’m thankful for cozy nights on the couch, huddling around the ipad, knitting and watching breaking bad.
