Once again, it's time for everyone to give thanks in sappy posts, diaries, tweets, Facebook status updates, and what not. This is no exception. So here goes:
I'm thankful I'm still here.
I'm thankful for my family. Not only my immediate family, but my extended family. We get together rarely, but when we do, it's like we've been together forever.
I'm thankful I am loved, and not only by my family. I'm thankful that people I have feelings for and care about actually like me.
I'm thankful that Humanity can produce things like this:
I'm thankful Barack Hussein Obama is still the President of the United States
I'm thankful for full time employment. Which means insurance.
I'm thankful that if I didn't have full time employment I'd be able to afford insurance now with the ACA.
I'm thankful for 800 maddening, infuriating, insane, brilliant, surprising, caring, respectful, responsible, wonderful fifth and sixth graders.
And I'm thankful for the Kos community, especially the WFD peeps, Thursday Classical Music, Weight Loss Kos, and the extraordinary bloggers I'm privileged to post with.
