The holiday season…

… is among us!

We have a holiday on Monday, to celebrate Veteran’s Day. I am very, very thankful to all of our Veterans – young and old. For allowing me to have the family and friends that I have today, I thank you. For the beautiful home that I live in today, I thank you. For the job that I hold today, I thank you. For all you’ve done to allow me the freedoms I enjoy today, I thank you. Without you, I shudder to think what my life might be. Thank you.

The week after that is Thanksgiving week. That just does not seem possible. In addition to all those things I mention above to be thankful to our Vets for, I thank my friends for being there when I laugh and cry, I thank my family for the same and for always being so supportive of me. I thank my coworkers for making my days pleasurable (even if I do complain now and again) and I thank them for helping me learn all the new things that I learn everyday in this place.

I am especially thankful to and for my husband of 20 years (tomorrow). That also does not seem possible. As expected, there have been ups and downs (don’t believe anyone that tells you they have a marriage without!) but he has always been there for me, through good times and in bad, in sickness and in health… just like he said he would be 20 years ago! He’ll never read this but I’m sending him a cyber “Thank you. Happy Anniversary. I love you!” all at once.

Ah, then there’s Christmas and New Years. We found out today that the Institute will be closed on both Mondays (12/24 and 12/31) as the holidays fall on Tuesdays so there’s just one more thing for me to be thankful for!

Phew! Life is good. I am happy.

So, tell me, what are you thankful for?
