i'm thankful for...

things i am thankful for this Thanksgiving:

1. good health. it is heartbreaking to work with older people everyday because there are very few of them who are in perfect health. it really makes one count their blessings to not have anything wrong with them.

2. fabric softener sheets. i'd like to hug whoever invented those. could you imagine if we didn't have them? my hair would be in five different counties.

3. family. 'nough said.

4. friends. more so than ever. over the last few years i have come to realize who my true friends are, as cliche as it may sound.

5. semi-permanent hair color. especially since i found a gray yesterday.

6. good soul music--i'm thankful for people like otis redding and elvis and the temptations and the drifters. they make bad days better.

7. coke zero. i get the coke but without the caffeine, carbs or calories. what more could a girl want?!

8. the traditions that surround the holidays. i love getting all wrapped up in the "traditional" Thanksgiving meals and gatherings and then gearing up for Christmas and all the traditions that surround it.

9. a cozy home and a good job to keep the lights and heat on.

10. my sweet Jeff, who just gets sweeter.

11. time. seems the older i get the more precious it becomes.

happy thanksgiving to you all and may you have the gift of time to sit and think about what you are thankful for--the silly and the serious.

oh, and happy black friday shopping, too!
