As Thanksgiving falls behind us and Christmas looms ahead, I'd like to reflect on what I'm thankful for this year, since there is oh-so-much that God has provided. I'm thankful for a great job that I enjoy and a great work environment. With real unemployment around 17%, I am so very grateful to have gotten a job - and it's a job that is perfect for me! I'm thankful for a loving, vibrant, and fun (and growing!) community in the city. I'm thankful for roommates who I enjoy living with and a wonderful apartment. I'm thankful to have found a new church home with equally friendly and loving new friends. I'm thankful for my family who I get to see very often even though we live thousands of miles apart. I'm thankful for my wonderful boyfriend who makes life deeper, richer, and fun(ner). I'm thankful for this fantastic book on typography my boss recommended to me (Bringhurst/Elements of Typography) <- I am a nerd. Finally, I'm thankful for my boots. The rainboots. And the other ones. Right now I'm really excited about them.
So happy thankful weekend and happy Christmas season!
