This week has been one of giving thanks and expressing gratitude. And I have many things to be thankful for -- more than I could possibly list in one blog post. So consider this post some of the highlights.
I am thankful for the miracle that is my body and all the things it has allowed me to do, like run in yesterday's Turkey Trot 5K with the Mister (and I ran nearly all of it and finished in 27:14 -- a very good time for me!).
I am thankful for my family -- my partner and best friend and my daughter, who is growing up into a smart, caring, kind young woman.
I am thankful that last night we were able to gather with family and enjoy a delicious meal and good company.
I am thankful that on Tuesday, my brother- and sister-in-law welcomed a healthy baby boy, and everyone should be home today.
I am thankful for knitting and crochet and spinning and yarn and fiber. I am thankful for books and libraries. I am thankful for the internet, which has allowed me to learn so much and make wonderful friends. I am thankful for you, dear readers, for being part of this wonderful community.
