Thursday, November 25th, 2004 • No Comments on Thanks
In no particular order, I’m thankful for:
—Sheri, for always being here, no matter where “here” is.
—Jay, who supports and indulges a moody, possibly insane, free spirit of a wife when he could have married a minivan driving soccer mom.
—A dog who sleeps on the bed and keeps me safe in the night.
—Cats who gather in whatever room I’m in when they could be as aloof as normal cats.
—Susie Bright, for being a kick ass role model.
—Ditto Heather Corinna.
—This guy, for being there through
hurricanes, injured dogs, stray cats, snow days, Staff Days, party plans, splinters, new jobs
—John Kerry, for giving me hope—if only for a few months.
—Hillary Clinton, for giving me hope that things will get better in four years.
—My Powerbook, because I’ve written more on it in the past three months than I wrote on my desktop in two years.
—Being a student again.
—Editors who buy my work—especially the ones who ask me to write something for them.
—Lush, especially the one in London because I hope to go back and visit it soon.
—Starbucks, for keeping me going.
—Josh, for being the kind of teenager who makes me wish I had kids.
—Being home for the holidays when a lot of people can’t be.
—NaNoWriMo for motivating me to write a book that’s been in my head for awhile.
—Everyone who reads my little musings here. Whether you post comments or not (and I wish y’all would, it inspires me to write more), I love that you take the time to read what I write.
—Friends, old and new, close and distant. They are my wacky, exasperating family.
Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have as much to be thankful for as I do.
