I woke up this morning trying to come up with all of the things I am thankful for this year. The usual things came to mind - the things I am thankful for every day, like my caring husband, my cute dog, my cool family, the fact that I'm in my 40s and still active and healthy, etc etc. Like I said, The Usual.
