Thanks
11.27.14

This is the day when we're all called upon to reflect back and recognize the things we're thankful for. I generally recognize how good my life is. Even though I've been unemployed for 4 months, that doesn't change that I recognize the goodness.

I've got a great batch of friends. They put up with me and my quirks. Some have been putting up with them for 30 years. Others have less time served, but that just makes the experience of me that more intense. I can be myself around everyone I call a friend, which is the measuring stick I use for that tag. I don't have many friends that I've known less than 10 years. Maybe that makes me picky?

I've got batches of family that I don't see often, which I think is good because most of my family couldn't handle me in large doses. I have a cousin I see every 4-6 weeks to cut my hair and she catches me up on family gossip on that side of the family. I talk to my grandmother less often than I should, but my lifestyle is so far out of her life experience I get the feeling she never really knows what I'm talking about ("I do computers" is mainly what I know she equates with me). That doesn't mean I don't love my family, I do. More than I realize sometimes.

I still talk to Mom. She's been gone almost 6 years, but I'll still walk around the house and talk to her - usually when things are going really, really good. I'm glad I do that.

I have a job again. I'm thankful for that, just to have some income. It's not a job I particularly care for, but that's a story for another day. With any luck I can soon replace it with a job I've been after for the better part of 2 months.

Now I'm about to head out and celebrate a new Thanksgiving tradition with Gina that we've been talking about doing for a while - watching the Friends Thanksgiving episodes (my favorite is the one with Brad Pitt as the formerly fat guy... I'm Brad Pitt in Friends!). That brings me to who I'm most thankful for - Gina. She takes good care of me, puts up with my quirks, and motivates me to take care of myself. She does all this and probably doesn't even know it.
