Thankful

For the Sock It To Me Twice Swap, in honour of the American Thanksgiving, we've been asked to post a list of the things we are thankful for. And with the craziness that's been my life lately, I think it's a great time to stop and think about that.

1. My family for always loving me and encouraging to grasp every opportunity I'm presented in life.

2. My kitties who are always there to give me a cuddle at the end of a hard day and always give so much more love back for every bit you give them.

3. Having a place to play my music every single week with people who love it just as much.

4. All the teachers and professors I have had that have shown me an incredible amount of support and encouragement as I battle my way to one day having a PhD.

5. As much as I complain, living in a place with four seasons where there is always snow at Christmas.

6. Wonderful friends who accept all of my craziness and love me anyways.

7. My knitting as an escape from the stress of every day life.

8. Being able to spend my life working and doing what I love, math and statistics which at some times is completely unbelievable to me. Every day this summer I came to work to do research unbelievably grateful that I was being paid to do something I love so much.

9. The simple pleasures in life like a hot bath at the end of the day or a chocolate treat just because it makes me happy.

10. Living in a country where I have the luxury and freedom to do whatever I want in life without being limited by being a woman.

What very nice things to read. We have so many good things around us; they surround us every day and outnumber the other things that are just things and will pass.
