Things I Am Thankful For

(In no particular order)

  1. A cuddly cat named Nermal. I can't believe we've had 3 years together already! 
  2. A Sunterra market close to home. Well, 2 locations close to home. 
  3. My chosen family. They know who they are.
  4. My regular family (well, most of 'em, anyway!).  =)
  5. The mountains, where ski season will hopefully begin in 30 days! Yep, 30 days!! There's snow along the Divide chair.
  6. My health, despite the annual Thanksgiving cold. A clear scope and Lupus in remission for 10+ years are reasons enough for me to be thankful.
  7. NeoCitran (the real deal and the LifeBrand), my neti pot, my diffuser and Saje Immune essential oil, Emergen-C (tangerine flavour) and a comfy bed, clean sheets and cuddly cat (see #1). Oh, and a doctor's note so that I could rest and recover. 
  8. Starbucks Tazo Chai. I know, I know, it's pure sugar, but man, it's tasty. And there's caffeine. That's a good thing.
  9. Eggnog! See #8.
  10. Sunshine, even in October. Today the sun was shining and it was a beautiful, fall day. A walk along the river was just what the doctor ordered.
  11. Soft Kleenex. See #7.
  12. My yoga mat. My yoga practice. My yoga kula.
  13. Did I mention Nermal? Yeah, she's pretty cute. 
Gobble, gobble. Take this attitude of gratitude and remember it the other 364 days of the year!
