Thanksgiving signs a couple of things in my head. Usually, it's the start of a busy season where I have too much to do, not enough time in which to do them, and add in the stress of travel and people, well, it's not so much fun.

This year, I'm forcing myself to think about the things I am thankful for. Not the normal "Family, friends, home" sort of things, but the things that truly make my life great. These aren't in any particular order and are mostly subject to how they popped out of my head:
  1. Playing video games with my kids
  2. Watching movies with my husband
  3. Books that delight
  4. Movies full of clever, witty writing
  5. Authors who share their writing stories
  6. How Thanksgiving starts the sprint to the finish line for the school semester
  7. Snuggley puppies on cold nights
  8. Once a year treats like pumpkin pie
What are you thankful for this year?

Love the list and I definitely have to second items 3, 4, 5 and 8.

I would also add the following:
1. Getting to write for my job!
2. A one-eyed, mangled-ear cat who purrs at the drop of hat.
