I am thankful I have lived this long in relative health, that my parents and siblings are all living, that my niece and nephews are fun people,n and that we all enjoy spending time together.
I am thankful for the fancy dinner my parents treated us all to and how my family made me laugh until I cried.
I am thankful for the "hilarious travesty" of a cake my sister made for me because that meant I didn't have to.
I am thankful that all my family came from so far and for such a short period of time to help me celebrate my birthday.
And to back up just a bit...
I am thankful that is there is no snow in the forecast for some time, and that I have some hope of seeing the ground once again. I am thankful that breaking my shovel in the hard crust of snow in our driveway gives me an excellent excuse to not shovel again until we get a new one.
And this week is the week I get to see Lizzi again! And Kristi! And maybe Denise? Whoop!
