Countdown to Thanksgiving

by Naomi Pearson. 0 Comments

I planned to post something I’m thankful for each day this month until Thanksgiving, but since I’ve started late, I’m going to list fourteen things now, and try to keep up with it for the next couple of weeks.


1. I’m thankful, first and foremost, that the Halloween snow didn’t last into November.

2. I’m thankful for the love and reliability of true friends.

3. I’m thankful that I’ve made new friends here, both in town and at work.

4. I’m thankful for mostly good (though chilly) weather this month -- I was getting tired of the weekly Wednesday night rains of September and October.

5. I’m thankful to have a steady and mostly secure job.

6. I’m thankful to have a new (paid) freelancing gig, bringing the number to two.

7. I’m thankful to have a great place to live and a fantastic roomie/landlord.

8. I’m thankful to be in relatively good health and spirits.

9. I’m thankful for my family.

10. I’m thankful that I live in a town that appreciates and celebrates art and creativity.

11. I’m thankful for the knowledge that I’m trusted and cherished.

12. I’m thankful that, actually, I lack for nothing.

13. I’m thankful that I was blessed to be able to have a good education.

14. I’m thankful for a warm bed.


Most to come...
