What Am I Thankful For?

  • I'm thankful for my husband, Eric, and the many years we've had together.
  • I'm thankful for my family. I'm thankful to know them and proud to be related to them. Even when we all disagree.
  • I'm thankful for my friends, and what they've done for me. I wouldn't be around today without good friends to support me.
  • I'm thankful that Eric found a full-time teaching position this year, and I'm thankful for the support he's been getting in that job from his co-workers.
  • I'm thankful for free speech and the other rights I have as an American. I'm very thankful for how the election turned out, and glad I'm allowed to say that.
  • I'm thankful for the internet. For e-mail, blogs, message boards, usenet and the rest. I'm glad to be part of a global club.
  • I'm thankful for my stuff. For my house, my car, my comics, my books, my LEGO... They make life fun and comfortable.
  • I'm thankful for people who understand obsession, and allow me to indulge in my fandom of Aquaman without thinking I'm a loon.
  • I'm thankful for retailers who wait until after Thanksgiving to start putting up Christmas stuff, instead of starting Christmas decorations before Hallowe'en.
  • I'm thankful for people who wait until the end of December (or even January) before starting to post "year in review" articles.
  • I'm thankful for mysteries and wonder, and I hope we never quite figure out everything there is to figure out, because that would take the magic out of the world.
