I don't want to start the Christmas season before taking time to reflect on Thanksgiving 2009. Throughout this holiday, I have been thankful:
For the health of my family;
For friends who provided transportation to work, to the train station, and from the train station home;
For a friend who watched my dog while I was gone;
For a job that doesn't require me to work on holidays and provides the money to go home;
For getting to spend time with my mom and have a relaxed, simple celebration; and
For God from whom all these blessings flow.
