Taking Inventory

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I had been planning for a while to include a post about all the things for which I'm thankful. When I finally sat down to write it out, I realized there are way to many things to be included in one post. In fact, I could probably use each post from here on out to list all the things that bless my life. That in itself is a blessing.

So, at the top of my "thankful list", I include:
- My loving husband
- My supportive family and friends
- Having a good job and being respected by coworkers
- Having enough money to pay bills and such
- Our home

Then there are many other things that are often taken for granted but are no less important, and therefore, no less appreciated:
- Our fireplace
- Having a car
- The Internet
- Living in an area that offers many opportunities
- Having the right to vote and speak for/against our leaders
- Being able to openly speak my mind, right or wrong
- Being able to blog about my life and opinions and having people actually read it!

This is just a sampling. Now it's your turn. What are some things you are thankful for?

What a great post. Here's my short list:

1. A wonderful and caring adult daughter.
2. My 2 dalmatians
3. A good job with a company and coworkers who care about me. (I've been here 24 1/2 years)
4. A good group of great friends
5. My home
6. My health
7. My daughter's health. (we had a breast cancer scare but everything turned out ok)
8. Obama is going to be President

Well there's my short list. Happy Thanksgiving!
