Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!

And I'm not!

Anyway, I decided to make a list of the things I am thankful for. Mostly because the Christmas Season is nearly upon us and I have a hard time not noticing the good things in my life, but also after hearing a very sad and unfortunate story earlier today, I realized that even though I have problems in my life and some issues that need to be dealt with, my life isn't really that bad. I have a lot to be thankful for. So in no particular order....

-->THiNGs I aM THanKfuL fOr <--

the clothes that fill my dresser and closet
grandparents far away thinking of me
movies that make me laugh
sunsets that make me feel small
food that fills my belly three times a day
a home surrounded in love
the innocent laughter of children
our "one great city"
the freedom to express myself
feeling safe while I sleep
a mom and a dad who love me
the fact that I can read
that I can listen and see and talk to people
my sisters, who put other sisters to shame
a church that I can go to in my pj's
a bed that I can sleep in
friends that I can joke with
a voice I can sing with
hands that I can play piano with
a boyfriend that I don't deserve

I don't think I can list everything, it might go on for pages...

Yah, I'm pretty happy I can read, too. What would I do without books?

A boyfriend you don't deserve? You both deserve each other.
I COULD argue the fact that your sisters put other sisters to shame. Have you met my sisters?
