I have so much for which to be thankful. Primarily, my loving family and friends, who truly go the extra mile for me. I am blessed to have an education, my own business, my health, musical abilities, a comfortable home, and several great opportunities in my future. I have to stop there, otherwise I'll get all sappy and weird, and after the drama of this past weekend I don't need to cry anymore. In fact, I believe that the timing of my heartbreak (which in the grand scheme of things, was a minor incident) is poignant; this week's Thanksgiving holiday has given me perspective. I may share the details at a later date, but be assured that it was not a major crisis. For some reason, however, it prompted a hysterical reaction in me that is quite rare.
I know you are all thankful for certain things, most of them akin to what I have mentioned, but here are some silly things that have made life more fun this past year!
I give thanks that my everyday commute (all of 2 minutes from home to work) is nothing like this:
Also, I'm thankful for pals like Mugsy, who send me things likethis fun/frustrating little game, so if you get bored over the long weekend, try it out!
I am thankful for human curiosity and the advent of YouTube which gave us the best science project of 2006:
I am most thankful for my husband and my daughter, who have seen the beautiful and horrific parts of me, and love me all the same. I hope they are aware of how precious they are to me. They also bring friends into our home, making it lively and fun.
Lastly, I am thankful for the photographs that document special moments in our lives. I plan to cover the walls of our new home with them, to remind us of those we love. Now, here's your project for the holiday - kinda like "Find Waldo." "Find Amber" in this group of spirited girls!
Happy Turkey Day!
