I enjoyed my birthday very much. Aging is actually fun. The older you get the more people make a fuss over you! I'm thankful for the fuss my husband, children, friends and students have made over me this birthday. I feel like a queen! (I'll post a picture of me with my crown on later!)
In the mean time, this birthday has caused me to reflect on a lot of things I have to be thankful for. There are soooo many! I am very blessed. I've been thinking over them this week and that led me to think of you. So I'd like to hear from you. Leave a comment and tell me what you are thankful for. But let's put a few ground rules down. All of us are thankful for our families, so we'll automatically include that one. Also think past the other generalities of life--the big blessings we all enjoy. Instead be very specific. Right now . . . in this very moment . . . what is there in front of you that suddenly you realize you are thankful for? Something you've never thought about before as something to be grateful for.
I'll start it out with paper. I love paper. A clean sheet of paper at first intimidates and then invites me to think. I'm grateful for paper (and of course pens!). Now it's your turn. . .
