I've noticed many Facebook friends writing daily statuses this month that begin with "I am thankful for..." It has been nice to read such positive things but, I have to admit, I haven't been participating. I definitely have many blessings in my life but I also get annoyed with Facebook so... it is what it is. I think I need a break or something. Anyway, Twitter is more fun. (Yes, I said that.) I am thankful for Twitter.
And lists. I like lists. But I'm not going to write a list here.
Naturally, making a list of all the wonderful things in my life, like chocolate and good books and flashlights, would be easy. (What would we do without flashlights?) But I am MOST thankful for all the people who make my life so lovely and messy and infinitely happy. I would not be where I am today if it weren't for my family.

Also, even though she definitely frustrates me sometimes, I love the blonde in our little family. She makes life interesting and makes us laugh and digs holes to Timbuktu in our yard. We love her. We do not love the holes.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that even when life throws curveballs and sends us spiraling in directions we didn't think we'd ever go, it's the people that make it well worth the effort. I am so grateful to have good memories with my family and friends, and to work with people who actually care about my future, and to have a furbaby who loves me even when I don't spend enough time with her. I am so very blessed. And for that I am truly thankful.
PS... I officially met my quota for the word "list" today. I feel awesome.
