This Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for so much.
First in my heart will always be my darling boy, who has grown into a kind and thoughtful man who (thankfully) doesn’t seem to share my penchant for anxiety. The dog is a close second–shh, don’t tell her that!
I have a job I’m learning to love. (Teaching kindergarten is my superpower!) My little students are exhausting but exhilarating. In just a few weeks of school, they’re already learned so much. Everyday we’re together, they make me a better teacher. If you’re not inspired by a room full of five year-olds, you’re beyond help.
I have a cozy little house with enough closet space and room for friends.
My fridge is always full, and between Netflix, my overflowing bookcase and a couple of Soduko books, I’m never bored.
Best of all, I’m looking forward to the future. (I’m already planning where to put the Christmas tree!)
It’s been a tough road, but I came through the darkness, and I’ve reached the light. (And the divorce is finally final!!!)
And Penny…she’s just thankful for the electric fire.
