The Little Things

Yesterday Girls' Prep began their Thanksgiving Vacation. As is tradition, every year the final event before vacation is a Thanksgiving Convocation where representatives from each grade read a short poem or story around the theme of giving thanks. So in the spirit of the season, here are the things I am thankful for. Some are big, some are small, but all are important in my life:

My family, my friends, my job, my health
Petunia greeting me at the stairs when I come home from work
On-campus housing
My proximity to a great city
Arriving home to find dishes done (SHM)
Butternut squash soup at the Dining Center
Dinner at the Cottage on a Wednesday (or Tuesday) night
Watching DVR with SHM and Tunes on a winter night with wine
Mornings with coffee and my book
My Iphone
Having my whole family live within driving distance
Having most of my friends in the same state as me (MOST.. not all:(
Hearing one of my soothing songs on the radio
The opportunity to have travelled to 17 countries on 4 continents
Thanksgiving Brunch, followed by Thanksgiving Dinner
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
