Thankful for...

I want to list a few things I am thankful for.
ok. A few more than a few. Sometimes when I am down it helps me remember just how many thing that are out there to be thankful for!

I'm thankful for:

Take-offs and landings.
Turning passanger's frown's upside down! ;-)
Floating in really warm water.
Drinking hot chocolate.
Warm nights in Portland - with a little moisture in the air.
Spinning on the beach.
Cuddling with cats or dogs.
Hiking thru small town's in Europe.
Visiting somewhere I've never been before.
Hearing people speak French.
Movies that make me cry.
Movies that make me laugh.
Looking at old pictures.
Pink. (The color not the "Artist")
Subway tunnels.
Windows in trains.
Guys with English, Scottish, Irish, South African and Aussie accents.
Meeting new people and hearing their stories.
Watching only the first 10 min. of Regis and Kelly.
Holding my Mom's hand.
Her remembering who I am. Calling me her daughter.
Painting my toenails.
Clean hotel rooms.
Hot baths.
Making people laugh.
Spinning on the beach.
Looking at the stars on that same beach, with no lights around.
Looking at the same stars, upside down, in Costa Rica.
Pizza in NYC.
Swing dancing in Paris. On cement floor, with no shoes on.
Free wi-fi in Hotels and Coffee shops.
My new laptop.
The dogs at my house.
My roommates (I should've put that before the dogs?!?)
Black and white photo's
Good friends, that care.
My cell phone.
The Canals in Venice.
Mexican food.
New suitcases.
Saturday morning cartoons.
My nieces.
Bottled water.
Reeses peanut butter cups.

What are you thankful for?

Teresa... what a great list. I definitely agree with most of it... especially movies that make me cry (or laugh), guys with accents, small towns in Europe, meeting new people & hearing their stories... well... and of course kissing & chocolate & my nieces...

I hope to see you soon.

holy crap. too long. I couldn't finish. I'm far too thankful for brevity these days. and how did that water get warm? sounds kinda fishy. I suppose there's parts of the world where H2O is warm naturally. so I've heard. I guess you'd know.

well I'm thankful for the warm presence you immediately bring to any room you enter. you're fab. lovely and bright in every way. congrats on that.

and I'd like to add a 'word up' to your pink and pb cup selections.

cheers, dear.

I'm thankful that I made it onto your list, T!
Also, I'm thankful for my dogs and books. Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

Teresa, I love this list... Every time I start writing an "I'm thankful for..." list it just goes on and on. I think we should do this regularly because it makes the other stuff seem less stressful.

P.S. I'm thankful for you!
