Things for Which I'm Thankful

  • It is not against the law to stay home the day after Thanksgiving and completely ignore the feeding frenzy known as Black Friday.
  • Three lovely and loving daughters; one witty and wonderful son
  • Skyline chili (http://www.skylinechili.com/)
  • Both my family and my in-laws live too far away for us to be able to (have to) drive to each of their houses for major holidays. (Okay...true truth: I kind of miss having a hundred and twelve people gathered around card tables for Thanksgiving.)
  • Classic 70's albums on CDs
  • Facebook
  • Squirrels playing in our back yard
  • Being able to watch squirrels playing in our back yard without having to actually be outside in the cold
  • It doesn't cost a penny to post a blog and thereby pretend that people give a hoot about what you're writing.
  • Looney Tunes
  • My Beloved
  • Digital cameras
  • Action fleece jackets
  • Free movies On Demand
  • Popcorn
  • Having started the tradition of buying a new Christmas tree ornament every year of our marriage...one that has something to say about the year. That has turned our tree into a memory aid.
  • I no longer work during the night and sleep during the day.
  • Silly Putty
  • Automatic dishwashers
  • I finally discovered that sweet potato casserole is actually a dessert.
  • Free podcasts of Full Circle, a radio show looking back at early Jesus Music like Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, Love Song, Honeytree...(http://www.fullcirclejesusmusic.com/)
  • Toothpicks
  • DVD special features
  • Fried egg sandwiches
  • Giggles
  • It's a Wonderful Life, the movie
  • It's a wonderful life, the reality.

...not necessarily in that order.
