Top of everyone’s list: that I am not a turkey.
Of course, the naturals: family and friends. And friends who are, quite frankly, family. And family who are, despite shared history, friends.
And a few things I’m thankful for that aren’t necessarily in the “of course” category:
- Engineers. Not only a great source of humor (Big Bang Theory and Dilbert) but also they designed boxes. I’m talking those office file boxes that come to me flat, and I can fold out into sturdy script carriers without the use of tape or glue. A marvel! (I take my office joys where I can!)
- Chocolate. Not all chocolate, mind you. Just the good kind, like the type that goes on donuts or with ice cream or in little foil wrappers. Not the kind that goes on chicken, or in twizzlers, or in coffee.
- Peanuts. Not the kind that causes kids to break out (although that kind is quite forgivable for being deadly if you cover them with chocolate) but the round headed boy and the kid with the funny nose kind. Wisdom that never goes out of date – “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt,” and “Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'”
- He from whom all good things flow. Hey, while on the subject, check out this new video from BADD. You will recognize Cath and I as “Rich Couple.” Hee hee. Oh, the post-its say: “From Jesus.”
Just my thoughts,
