On Monday when I was reading my Google Reader, I stumbled upon a post that was titled something like 100 Things I Am Thankful For. My friend Sarah had written it. I clicked on it to read it and comment but it wasn’t there. Which we all know probably means she accidentally pushed “Publish” instead of “Save.” Oops. But it gave me an idea. I thought about making a list of things I sincerely am thankful for. But there are a few problems with that. There are a lot, I’d be sure to miss some and then feel guilty about it, and I don’t have an attention span long enough to put my mind to it. But I think it’s a great exercise and look forward to reading Sarah’s full list.
Instead, I’m going to reflect on a few things I’m thankful for that I don’t normally thank God for when we’re standing around the kitchen table holding hands during the “What are you thankful for?” exercise.
I am thankful:
-for my high metabolism.
-that Stephen is entertaining.
-that I have a job that doesn’t involve panty hose.
-that Jim, Sarah, and Lauren convinced me to use Google Reader. What did I ever do without it?
-that I don’t have expensive taste. I love Old Navy just as much as Ann Taylor.
-for excellent Mexican food.
-for my healthy finger nails.
-for my blog and all my readers. You guys are the best!
-for all things pumpkin.
-that I live in Texas.
-for spell check.
-that my family loves to laugh together.
-that I love to read.
-for my LG Dare so I can read email anytime I want.
-for quality television like The Office and The Biggest Loser.
-for good, strong, hot coffee.
-the Old Navy makes cheap, long jeans.
-for cotton dresses so I don’t have to wear shorts in the summer.
-for text messaging so I don’t have to talk on the phone much.
-for The University of Texas.
Is that enough? I’m thankful for so much more. You know… like margaritas, free things, Julia Child, office supplies, and comfy underwear. I could really go on and on but we’ve all got about 5000 calories that aren’t going to ingest themselves.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
