To Those Celebrating: Happy Thanksgiving!

To those not celebrating, have a great Thursday. :)

And, since I think it's always a good idea to not take anything for granted, I thought I'd list a few of the (many and varied) things I'm thankful for here (really, I cannot pack everything into a single list):

Blogging--in particular, the other bloggers (i.e. you awesome people reading this post).
Writing--being able to express myself in so many ways.
Dance--it can be hard, but there's no substitute.
Family--Mom, you rock.
Life--because there are things to do and see that are still out there.
. . . finally, I am thankful I don't have to write tomorrow for NaNoWriMo. I reached 50,014 words on Monday (hooray!). And while we're planning to spend the holiday at home, it's nice not to have to do anything in particular that day.

What are you thankful for?

I wanted to break 40K tonight, but my brain shut down. Of course, here I am commenting on blogs again, but that's a different part of the brain. Typing and actually making sense are two very different things.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm grateful for just about everything in my life. I have so much, including the most important; relatively good health, the ability to walk, talk and see, close family and a few really good friends. I wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving :-)
