    Default I'm thankful for...

    WARNING! SAP AHEAD!

    of course, I'm thankful for my husband and my kids. That goes without saying, but it's still worth saying once in awhile. They are awesome. I'm thankful for a drama-free marriage to a strong and sensitive guy, and the sweetest, most beautiful kids in the world.

    I'm thankful for my extended family. It's easy to focus on the dysfunction, and forget about the strong love and respect we all have for each other despite occasional drama. My siblings are THE BEST, and 3 out of 4 of them are now married to spouses I also love dearly. My brother has two awesome kids. My parents love us to pieces, and my mother's siblings are more and more loving as time goes by. My father's mother, my grandmother, of course, is awesome. And I'm thankful that I still have one grandparent left at the ripe old age of 32. Most people I know have lost them all by now, and I miss the other 3 deeply. I'm fortunate to see my grandmother a few times a month and when she's not with me anymore I will have said everything to her that I regret not saying to my other grands before they died.

    I'm thankful for work that requires a brain, though it's in a lull at the moment. (Hope that ends ASAP.) And I'm thankful for the years before I had this work that I was a childcare provider--though it didn't scratch the itchy brain, it cultivated my patience, empathy, and acceptance for different kinds of people.

    I'm thankful for abundance. I get hung up on living in a crappy little house sometimes, but it keeps us all warm and requires me to keep my "stuff" pared down to a manageable level. And it's more than many people around the world have, so it would be bratty to be ungrateful for it. We never go hungry, we don't have to do grueling physical labor or suffer much stressful interpersonal stuff, and we have enough to sometimes help others in need.

    I'm thankful for my daughter's school, at which she is learning to love learning, and my son's childcare provider, who is unrelentingly positive about his idiosyncrasies and works with him rather than against him.

    I'm thankful for feta-stuffed olives, dark chocolate in the freezer, and finally having the willpower not to eat it all at one time.

    What are you thankful for?

    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I am thankful that the white man came from across the seas and butchered and raped the natives in order to establish THIS GREAT REPUBLIC!
