So this whole “post something every day” thing hasn’t quite gone as planned, but I have been keeping my blessings in mind the whole time nonetheless. To catch up, and by the way, it was hard to keep it to one thing a day:
11/10: I am thankful for sympathetic, non-judgy listeners.
11/11: I am thankful for finding the most awesome knee-high boots, and having the means to obtain them.
11/12: I am thankful for those days when everything seems to go my way
11/13: I am thankful parties that bring friends who haven’t seen one another in ages together, with a fire pit! (Food note: baked brie and blueberry pie, oh my!)
11/14: I am thankful that there are so many opportunities for people to help others in ways they are best suited for, e.g. knitting for cancer patients, delivering food to homebound folks, volunteering at a food bank, etc.
11/15: I am thankful for being able to enjoy opera and help others enjoy it too.
11/16: I am so thankful for the time I got to spend with Lily.
11/17: I am thankful for cute bartenders who only see me maybe once a month, but remember my order and serve it with a smile.
11/18: I am thankful for the Salvation Army and the work they do (I wish they didn’t need the bells, though)
11/19: I am thankful for last-minute concert buddies
11/20: I am thankful for being able to sleep till noon on occasion. (Food note: chocolate truffle cookies and cambezola cheese, holy cow!)
11/21: I am thankful that I can still do daring things and feel more thrill than fear.
11/22: I am thankful for movie-buddies who will see so-bad-they’re-not-quite-good films and still have a great time.
11/23: I am thankful for short day-before-holiday workdays
