I am thankful

I am thankful for all the good things in the world. I am personally thankful for the ones that touch my life. But I am thankful for everything everywhere that makes people more happy than sad. You must sometimes look on things in perspective of the scale of history. There have been many bad, terrible times. But throughout them, despite them, there are always good things. Never stop looking for them and appreciating them.

I am thankful TO everyone who creates, nurtures, enriches, or preserves the good things in the world.

The story of my Thanksgiving Day, told in some of the little things I was thankful for:

I am so very thankful to have woken up cuddled up to someone I love, desire, and appreciate, and that he feels the same way about me. I am thankful I managed to figure out where he set down his glasses the night before, and thankful for my contact lenses.

I am thankful that my sister was ready to go around the time I was supposed to pick her up, even though I couldn't get ahold of her 'til ten minutes before that time. I am thankful that her shy girlfriend came to Thanksgiving with her this time.

I am thankful for my dad's usual expert cooking of the turkey, and his calm when my mother freaked out over her somewhat failed attempts at gravy. I am thankful Mom put plenty of spice in the oatmeal spice muffins, and didn't burn the pie crust. I am thankful for my great aunt's fantastic broccoli casserole. I am thankful that my grandmother managed to eat and enjoy more food than she's eaten in the past week all together (not much appetite due to radiation therapy, but she got some medication to help with that).

I am thankful for all the good conversation. I am thankful that Carl Sagan made the TV series Cosmos, which we watched an episode of, which told us we are all made of elements that were birthed in stars millenia before our sun was born. We are all made of parts of stars.

I am thankful to have in my life all the people I love. I am thankful that Matt and I are managing to live happily together. I am thankful the Baxters cleared most of their stuff out of the studio (though it means I better get busy clearing my stuff out of there).

I am thankful for all the lovely things I have to look forward to. I am thankful for all the good books that have been written or are being written.

theophania_79, awhile ago in her LJ, reminded us all not to take for granted being able to walk up and down stairs. And there are so many other things we are likely to take for granted. I am thankful for all these things, some of which are probably yet to occur to me.

I am thankful for so many other things, but that is enough to say.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.
And thank you, everyone who made my day happy. For it was.
