Being Thankful

Things I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving:

  1. My kids and husband and extended family in general.
  2. My kids specifically for waking up early (early enough) to help cook for Thanksgiving and for being so enthusiastic about cooking today.
  3. My husband for his infinite patience and for doing all of the dishes last night.  Yay, Matthew!!
  4. The background process in my mind that came up with the perfect ending to my NaNo novel while I slept last night.
  5. My dad, who is coming over today and could care less how messy my house is or how good or bad the food is. 
  6. Whoever came up with the food poisoning scene in Bridesmaids. 
  7. My writing and blogging friends, who give me the support I need to keep writing.
  8. My husband's job.  And the thing where I don't have to have one.
  9. The thing where I can stand and walk around my kitchen and cook all day.  Last year and the year before I couldn't.
Of course there's more, a thousand tiny things I'm thankful for everyday.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
