Reasons to be Thankful

24 Nov

While it’s natural every Thanksgiving to give some thought and reflection to the blessings in our lives, I feel more inclined to do so this year than any other. So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving and the joy of the holiday season, here is the shorthand list of things I am thankful for this year.

  1. Both of my parents being alive
  2. My son – I mean, have you seen him?
  3. My husband, for everything
  4. My brother being happy
  5. Sunday nights – you know why
  6. The best pen pal I’ve ever had (even though I’m a little slow on my end)
  7. Having a job that I love

And I think I’ll stop there. Seven seems an odd number to end a list with, but I think anything else I could add would seem petty and small compared to the role that the aforementioned things play in my life.

May everyone be so lucky as to have a list of reasons to be thankful that is as meaningful as mine. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
