    What are you thankful for?

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    It's that time of year when I start counting my blessings. My life is pretty good and I'm very thankful about that. I have a great spouse who's totally supportive of me. My kitties are the best - really they are. I have the time (mostly) and the money to do the things I want to do. I have a job I enjoy and this year I have a wonderful class with REALLY pleasant kids.

    Your turn.

    Discipline is remembering what you want.

    The nice people who help me fix my bike, when I am lost at side of road.
    My dearest BF who supports me in everything. My dear gal pal Sal who gave me encouragement in a very hard time. My partner, who is trying as hard as he can to be a good person.

    Im rich cause Im lucky

    Great boyfriend, steady permanent job, enough money to heat my house and eat whatever, whenever I want, medical insurance, and last but not least the crazy spotted pointer dog. I consider myself extremely fortunate. Yeah, I worked hard, but others have worked harder and had atrociously bad luck.

    I'm thankful for the large majority of drivers around here who give me plenty of road room and wave back in answer to my wave.

    I'm also thankful for TE and the forums!

    Looking at all the love there that's sleeping
    I'm thankful that, in spite of everything this year, we still have a roof over our heads and our health.

    My DH, who is incredibly supportive of me, and who takes really good care of our house, our cars, and our pets.

    My pets, who love me unconditionally.

    My job- I may be the only one in my group at the moment (due to attrition, not layoffs) and completely overloaded, but I'm still employed and have enough seniority to likely stay that way.

    My health and fitness, and the fact that I have enough insurance and money to maintain both.

    The things I am not grateful for are trivial and superficial compared to all the things I am profoundly grateful for.

    We usually go around the table at Thanksgiving and say what we're thankful for, but this year I won't be with my family so I think I'll inflict this tradition on my hosts

    I am forever thankful for my partner, he changed my life and has made me happier and more confident that I thought possible. I'm thankful for everyone in my family for being so wonderful and caring without the least bit of drama, I'm thankful for my crazy dog and that I've almost completed my education despite setbacks. I'm grateful for the information I learned that have put a new light on how lucky I am and make me appreciate it all more than once a year.

    And I'm thankful I've had a very safe year without any huge injuries or illnesses.

    I'm thankful for MaxBabe's love and support. I'm thankful that she doesn't give me a hard time about spending all my dollars on biking I'm thankful that MitchMutt is still alive, and although a little arthritic, is generally in good health. I'm thankful I still have a job when hundreds in my company have lost theirs.

    I'm thankful that I live where I do. I love waking up every morning to the trees and mountains

    This is going to sound strange, but I'm thankful that my sister who had breast cancer is finally out of misery. I miss her terribly. But it was so heartrending to see her suffering in pain. I'm sure she's flying free, without pain, with a full head of the beautiful hair that she was so proud of before all of the chemo.

    I have so many things to be grateful for but the main things would be family, our wonderful dogs and friends.
    The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
