Writers' Wednesday: Things I am Thankful For

"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'thank you,' that would suffice." ~Meister Eckhart

On the day before Thanksgiving, it seems fitting that I should mention some of the many things for which I'm thankful. So here goes:

I am thankful for...

My good health.
My family members, especially my mom, my sister, and my husband.
The friends I have rediscovered this year thanks to Facebook!
The new friends I have made this year, especially the girls at the gym who love Zumba as much as I do :)
My job, where I get to laugh and touch young people's lives every day.
The roof over my head and the comfortable, lovely home I live in.
My community, which is safe and pretty and friendly and close to the hometown where I grew up.
My inherent talents, especially for creating books and creating music.
My optimism.
My perseverance.
My cats, who love me unconditionally no matter what.

What about you? What are you most thankful for this year?

Yes, this is a good time to count my blessings which are many this year:

My health which allows me to sing in choirs; to run any occasional 5-K; to travel and live independently

My family, especially my daughters, sisters and son- in-laws

My friends who have supported me through a difficult year

My very comfortable homes

My pets who are always there for me

My tenacity
