I am thankful to have an amazing partner in my life.
I am thankful to have an excellent job in difficult times (and that said job still exists in spite of open-bar antics at the annual retreat).
I am thankful for my huge and endlessly interesting family.
I am thankful for friends who share their lives, their recipes, their dogs, and their doctors’ phone numbers.
I am thankful for the opportunity to continue my education, which has allowed me to let my brain stretch in ways it didn’t for a while.
I am thankful to be of adequately sound mind and body.
I am thankful that “adequately sound” is a reasonable expectation, and for the growing acceptance that there’s no such thing as “normal.”
I am thankful for art and culture and the proximity of both.
I am thankful for old photos, new traditions, and endless love.
I’m also thankful for flannel sheets, Newton’s Folly hard cider, and organic lip balm. I mean, it doesn’t take much.
