Thanksgiving thankfulness.

I’ve had an interesting year this year, full of ups and downs, happiness and sadness, good things and bad. In general, I’m happy with where I am right now, and I’m thankful for the many good things in my life.

  • I live on the East Coast again. I walk through the town in which I live and smell the salt air. I live 3 miles from the ocean. I absolutely love it. I’m thankful for the ocean, for the town of Portsmouth, and for the cool restaurants and bars in my new home town.
  • I’m spending Thanksgiving with my family for the first time since 2004! I’m thankful I live so close now that I can just pop in my car, drive for 2.5 hours, and be at my parents’ doorstep. I’m thankful for my mother and father, my sister and brother, and their significant others.
  • I’ve met so, so many new people within the past six months. I’ve met new knitting friends, people in the Drupal community, and coworkers who have become friends. I’m thankful for all these people, and I’m thankful for all the other friends I have, who have known me for much longer.
  • I’m thankful for anyone who has lent me a shoulder to cry on and a beer to drink while out. I’m thankful for everyone in my life.

This is an incomplete list, but for the most part, I’m thankful for living in a place I love, and having so many wonderful people in my life. I am thankful for YOU.
