Things I'm Thankful For Thursday

Sass-Button-NEW-TIWT-5My good friend Sass over at Are You Sassified? host a weekly "Things I Want Thursday" (TWIT).  I have played along many times, and sometimes have on a time or two, put my own little spin on it.  And I am going to do that again today.  Being that it is Thanksgiving, here's a quick list of things I'm thankful for this year.

  1. I am thankful for Cora entering my life this year.  Yeah, that has to be listed first, because, seriously, she's completely rocked my world.  A year ago?  I pretty much had given up on ever getting married.
  2. I am thankful for all the people in the uniformed services who put their lives on the line to make sure that the people back home are safe.  (And yes, Shana, that includes Marissa's Sea Cadets.)
  3. I am thankful that in this economy that I still have a job.
  4. I am thankful for each and every follower, reader, lurker, commenter who visit my site.  I know I say that often, but I really mean it.  Many of you aren't just vague entities out there in cyberspace, but true friends.
  5. I am thankful for the pile of portable electronics that have entered my life since last Thanksgiving: My BlackBerry Bold, my Sony DSC-W290 digital point-n-shoot camera, and my Acer netbook.
  6. I am thankful for the time I will be spending in the airplanes and airports this weekend which will allow me to work on my Christmas cards.

What are you thankful for besides your family?

and reruns of WKRP in Cincinnati. Sure all the original music has been removed and replaced with generica, but the Thanksgiving episode is still the Thanksgiving episode!

I'm thankful for the opportunity to get my health on track again (trying to look at the good things about the last month or so).

congrats on the Cora-lity of your Thanksgiving. I only just stopped by your blog for the first time in a while, I guess I missed something important.

Cora said...

I'm thankful for you too! And I miss you terribly already. *sniff* 30 days to count down again.

30 days. :-)

I have been lurching/reading both you and Cora for a while now and I am so happy that the two of you found each other. It gives me hope that I won't be living out my days in a small house with 1000 cats and a yard that hasn't been mowed since 2000. :-)
Congratulations to you.
