Things I'm thankful

Every year since I can remember my grandmother has asked me to give her a list of things I'm thankful for. At 13 years old it probably contained things like "bonne bell lip gloss." And while I am still thankful for a great lip gloss, my list has gotten a little bit better over the years. I know it is a few days past Thanksgiving, but, what the heck, tis the season to be grateful anyways.

So, for Thanksgiving 2008, here is a lit of things I am thankful for

  1. B.How much I love him. How much he loves me and shows and tells me. The things he does for me, because of me and with me. That is he spontaneous which makes me do things I wouldn’t do without him. His calming nature. That I’ve been able to sustain a relationship for 2 years.
  2. The things my mother has unknowingly taught me-kindness and caring and doing the little things to make other people smile
  3. My father’s humor, wit, and sarcasm. That I always be his friend, not just his daughter
  4. That my parents have made sound financial decisions so that the current financial downturn hasn’t affected us much
  5. That my parents taught me to live within my means- an invaluable lesson that I think will serve me well in the future
  6. My sister and how close we have become. And this year, I’m thankful for P. for making her happier
  7. My cat cheeto
  8. The strength to get through these last few years of school (hopefully)
  9. Happy friends
  10. Wine
  11. Chocolate (peanut butter m&ms)
  12. My core group of girlfriends that are wonderful, lovely, and who care for me like family
  13. The internet and how it has made communicating with friends and family so much easier
  14. How beautiful my twin niece and nephew are
  15. Gluten free food
  16. For having friends that care enough about my allergy to adapt their lifestyle so I can eat with them
  17. My job
