Levi and his classmates line up for the jog-a-thon.

The thought occurred to me today that, now six days before Thanksgiving, I should theme the next few days of writing. Each day, I should consider something I am thankful for. Now, that I am home, considering writing, I thought since there are six days left, perhaps I could do a count down. What six things am I thankful for today, and tomorrow five, and so on.

So, today, the six things I am thankful for in no particular order:

  1. A school for my son that is a community,
  2. A boss who expresses gratitude each day,
  3. A husband who surprises me with his silly sense of humor,
  4. A possible change in neighborhood,
  5. A considerate son who expresses his love and need for me daily, and
  6. A commute that, into work, is less than twenty minutes.

What are you thankful for?

And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
