I try to be thankful every day of the year, but today I am especially thankful for:

  • Sisters who love me "warts and all," as our mother would say.
  • A husband with whom I laugh a lot more often than I argue.
  • A daughter who loves to cook. 
  • A mother who never let me get too full of myself.
  • A brother who would kill do bodily harm for me, even if I didn't find that out until I was in my forties.
  • A clean kitchen.
  • Enough leftovers for several days of football.
  • Football.
  • A job that allows me to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle.
  • A job.
  • A home where I feel safe and happy, even when I don't have enough closet space.
  • Good health.
  • Short winters and long summers.
  • Friends, both in the virtual world and the physical world.
  • A warm fire.
  • The internet.
  • Places all over the globe to experience.
  • A home to return to when the globe-trotting is finished.
  • Miracles of modern medicine, like those allowing Baby Luke to survive and thrive.
  • The colors of changing leaves.
  • Freedom.
  • Love.

What a wonderful list. I think you do indeed have many things to be thankful for. You forgot one, though: your sense of humor. It goes a long way towards improving the quality of life! :-)
