Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble!

I love Thanksgiving. It's the perfect holiday: sufficient food interest, an inclusive, secular nature, and a moral imperative to recognize the good things in my life that I often take for granted. No presents, no crazy mythology, and the glory that is stuffing. Bread sauteed with butter. Add a little cheese on top and, well, I'm in heaven.

This year I have a lot to be thankful for. I'm expanding the daily 5 to 10.
I'm thankful for:
  1. Family. While mine isn't so close geographically, they're with me daily. (the phone company is really thankful for that, too!)
  2. Friends - the surrogate family that you get to choose! I've been blessed to find some great new amis, and to reconnect with some amazing folks from my past.
  3. Good health. Other than accruing a year's worth of blisters in one week (in heels... I know, DUH.) in NYC, things are pretty good. Knock on wood and take a vitamin!
  4. Being able to sing for fun, without the pressure of having to make a living from it. Granted, I don't sing nearly as well as I did when I was trying to make a go of it, but I'm way less neurotic. Well, I think so, at least. Boy I hope so....
  5. Tiny puppy and Irked kitty. It's nice having critters in the house.
  6. A fulfilling job. I write a lot about it, but it's the truth.
  7. The space and opportunity to reflect.
  8. Creativity. Here's to delving into new projects and disciplines.
  9. Security...in who I am and where I came from.
  10. Possibility... I'm not sure what's coming ahead, but I'm sure it'll be a great adventure.
What are you feeling thankful for?

Best wishes to you and yours today - happy tryptophan! :)
