Turkey, anyone?

This weekend having been Thanksgiving, I thought I would make a typical "What I'm thankful for" type blog.

I've always been viewed by others as a very positive person, though I think I find myself more the misunderstood optimist. I, like everyone else I'm sure, have my moments where I don't see the glass as half full. I changed my Facebook status to note that I had a "glass half empty" kind of day, yesterday. And my friend Avery responded with, "Try a smaller glass." It got me thinking of perspective. If the glass is half empty, maybe I'm just using the wrong glass?! Thanks Avery! That made my day.

I have many insecurities, which Dan will vouch for, that I try to combat with forced outward positive energy. And some of those insecurities have been turned around with my efforts. I am thankful every day.

So, without further ado, I am thankful for:

-my loving and supportive partner, Dan.
-a mother who raised me to be my own person.
-a roof over my head.
-Laura Fry and all that she has done to help me be the weaver I am.
-a home that allows me to have a studio downstairs.
-Tanis, my cat, who snuggles with me every night.
-the opportunity to understand my priorities in life.
-my car. Though I prefer to walk, it does open a lot more opportunities for me.
-that I can help my community and the world be a little greener.
-that I've learned a lot about myself this year.
-that breakups happen and usually for the better.
-for all my other friends and family who have been there for me.

Anyway, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

  1. You wouldn't be human if you didn't get a little discouraged from time to time. :) The test is to do as Winston Churchill advises: When you are going through hell - keep going".

    Seems like a little half-empty was in the air last weekend! :D
