Rather than talk about myself directly for this week’s “10 Things,” I figured I’d provide a list of things for which I am thankful instead. I am thankful for (in no particular order)…

Being given the opportunity to express my thoughts, feelings, and ideas through this blog

Meeting my husband online (on the busy-signal-plagued AOL) all the way back in 1994.

Having high-speed Internet access nowadays—those busy-signal days of yore truly tested my patience, or lack thereof.

Being able to say that 3 out of 4 of my grandparents are still alive and well today

Getting a second chance to accomplish my educational goals (and graduation’s just around the corner!)

Being protected by our brave, hardworking troops, both in the past and in the present

Having the ability to listen to and appreciate music of (almost) all genres

Being able to laugh

Not having to do much holiday shopping this year (the upside of being broke!)


Here’s to a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
