I write a "Thursday thanks" each week, no matter what week it is... It's just a happy coincidence that this week's "thanks" falls on Thanksgiving. (I should note that this was composed in advance... just like the pies we're baking.)
I'm thankful for...
My parents and brother - who have been keeping an eye out for me since before I can remember... (Well, all except for Bro. I remember the day he showed up!) Bro even ran 26.2 miles with me. If that's not love, I don't know what is.
Friends, near and far - who stay in touch even though no matter where I live, I'm always 2,000 miles away from at least half of them.
My job - makes me crazy sometimes, but it pays the bills (and, hello, I get to telecommute). Plus, I work with some incredibly bright people. Not a bad deal.
My legs - which seem to work better the older I get... Maybe that's a good thing about picking up running post-college? Even in my mid-30s, my glory days still lie ahead!
Peanut butter - makes the world go 'round. No more perfect food was ever invented. I can polish off a jar in a week. (Hey, it could be worse. I could be addicted to drugs. Peanut butter seems like the safer choice.)
...and lots of other things, but if I list them all here, I'll have nothing to write about next week!
