Thankful, very

I would like to detail all that I am thankful for this year, but I cannot.

I just got home, after spending a few hours with one of my oldest friends - Aviva - and the house smells like turkey. Six perfect pies are sitting on the kitchen counter. We have a fire roaring in a fireplace. A pretty puppy named Blue met me at the door. Football is on the television. And my extended family is due over at any moment.

So, in the interest of time, I will generalize.

I am thankful for it all.

For the job that I hate. For the family that I love. For friends who are just a little crazy. For crappy weather. For cute shoes. For my unbelievably cruel aunt, uncle and cousin in Chicago. For the bedroom that doesn't hold all of my belongings and the flat I just leased. For Saturday morning's 4:30 am wakeup call. For my health. For my wimpy stomach. For everything I have and everything that I don't. And for the simple, humble ability to feel thankful.

I plan on having a beautiful, bountiful, slightly dysfunctional holiday.

I hope yours is as good as mine will be.
