Giving thanks

It only seems appropriate to have a post about what I am thankful for on this day before Thanksgiving. I've never celebrated Thanksgiving with a lot of fanfare, but it's one of the few times during the year where we do something that's genuinely good for ourselves and each other (nevermind the copious amounts of pie). It might have had a questionable start, but the spirit of Thanksgiving is all about appreciating what we have and not worrying about all the things we don't (that worry comes the day after).

So, I am thankful for:

  • my health
  • being inspired
  • my community college
  • beer
  • recycling
  • the olive bar at Safeway--specifically, the spicy olive and pepper concoctions
  • this climate--This will be my last rainy winter for a while
  • Zumba--I get to take my favorite Zumba class again in January!
  • my friends--here, there, and everywhere!
  • all the people who are working to make this world a better place

What are you thankful for?
