The Obligatory What I Am Thankful For Post

You know what this means. You need to be grateful............

There are certain things that can be expected this time of year.  Football,  turkey dinners, family get togethers, Black Friday sales followed by Cyber Monday sales and a bombardment of “thankful” lists.  These lists are from various people bragging about how great their lives are and we should all applaud them for recognizing it.  I have resisted the urge to add to this phenomenon but I couldn’t think of anything else to blog about so here goes.

Things I am “thankful” for in no particular order:

  • My family (Okay, if you don’t put that first people will talk about you.)
  • To be gainful employed (I need money to pay bills, buy scratch off lotto tickets so I can stop working, buy food and books.  Lots of books)
  • The NBA Lockout is finally over.  Now I can watch the Lakers on Christmas Day.
  • Google (What did we do before it was so easy to look up random facts like “Did Michael Jackson really write all of his songs?”  Seriously, as a writer I love Google.  It saves time on research.  I mean, what did people do before when you wanted to know something?  Actually talk to people?  The horror.)
  • Friends that get me and love me unconditionally. (Thank you for the material.  Oh, you didn’t realize that I’ve based a character in my book from your adventures?  Pay no attention to this list.)
  • That they finally found Sophia on The Walking Dead.  Even though she ended up being a zombie and Rick had to shoot her in the head.  (On a side note, I am totally on Team Shane.)
  • Music – I love music
  • The Closer is back for five final episodes!
  • And the big one, health.  (You can’t put a price on good health.)

These things can go on and on but I’ll stop there.

This Thanksgiving season, what are you thankful for?

  1. Unwritten, I’m thankful I got my family the heck away from my last duty station. I’m thankful that I still have you as a true friend. I am thankful I know love when I see it. I am thankful for God’s forgiveness. I am so thankful for a Mom like I have. She is awesome. I’m bless to have her with me. My twins loving them without a doubt. I’m thankful for where I live now. Though I know life isn’t perfect I am grateful for it.
