Much to be Thankful for

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have so much to be thankful for this year--our family, our friends, the birth of our nephew, all the support we've received, and my remission status.

There are many blessings to count today, including ten trivial ones below:

10. Handprint turkeys and paper pilgrim hats

9. Mashed potatoes

8. Black Friday shopping on Thursday

7. "Organic" pumpkin filling for pumpkin pie

6.  The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (Last year, we went to the balloon viewing the night before. Experiencing that chaos once was enough.)

5. The third movie installment of the Twilight series (you can interpret this one as serious or sarcastic)

4. Second helpings

3. Wine--even if it comes in a box

2. The A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special

1. Aaron Rodgers
