Things I am Thankful For...

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.  
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.  
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.  
~ Albert Schweitzer

What am I thankful for?  

1. A husband who will help me get the Christmas decorations out of this closet:

2. The fact that only one of our cats thinks that this is a reasonable place to pee:

3. See #2 above:

4. Most of all, I am thankful for all of the people who have rekindled my inner fire at one time or another: my husband, my heart's daughter Ana, my friends, my ESL students... and the list goes on!  I am truly blessed!  

What are you thankful for?  :)


  1. I'd list friends, family, health, good job... But I just found a beautiful poem by Kurt Vonnegut (reprinted at the end of this link - cannot find a standalone version). I think it sums up beautifully some of my recent experiences - the best thing that I have is "the knowledge that I've got enough".

    1. Wow - that is a powerful thought and poem! Thank you, MD! :)
