What I’m Thankful For…

The Thanksgiving Long Weekend starts today.

And I’m glad it does. I needed this holiday to come around right about now to remind me of all my blessings.

I hit a rough patch recently, and it’s been a difficult past few months, but I do have a lot to be thankful for.

Things I’m Thankful for…

My Blog

I just reread what I wrote last year at this time and it’s nice to look back and see that I was feeling really good about everything back then.

The comments I get

I want to personally thank everyone who has ever taken the time to add a comment to one of my posts. It really means a lot to me.

My family

I can always count on my family. My brother and his wife and hosting this year’s family dinner on Sunday and I’m really looking forward to it.

My job

I’m grateful that I have a good job in a day and age when a lot of people don’t. I’m glad that I enjoy my job and have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of my students.

The picture on this post is the “We are Thankful” turkey we made together in class this week. Each tail feather was made by a different person and gives the reasons why we are thankful.


I discovered what love is this year, I mean real true love. I didn’t think it really existed before this year. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out they way I wanted them to, but I’m happy I had the chance to fall in love again.


I am having a great time interviewing artists and being an on-air personality for this underground hip-hop radio show.

My health

I had a scare last spring where I thought I might have seriously injured myself. Fortunately, I hadn’t and I recovered just fine.


I love trail running. The season is just about over but I plan on getting out for a few more runs before the snow falls.

New and old friends

I made a few new friends this year and have kept in touch with some old ones.


I am writing some new fiction right now, and I have been journalling again. It feels great to have this outlet to share my thoughts and to come across some new insights.

Lots more

I’m sure I could list a lot more things that I’m thankful of. I need to remember the good things that I have in my life and not to dwell on things that I may have lost, or might never have. The above list is pretty good. I should happy about that, and I am.

I love Thanksgiving!

Bring on the food!
