Happy Thanksgiving 2013

Truth be told, Thanksgiving sort of snuck up on me this year, and while I do have a lot to be thankful for, I’ve just never liked the idea of reciting the list (a legacy of the days when teachers used to expect me to do this), which leaves me in a bit of a quandary since the “list of thankfulness” is the obvious way to go when you’re at a loss about what to write about Thanksgiving.

Maybe a little too obvious though, so I’m going to compromise by going with an abbreviated list of what I am most thankful for at this exact moment:

I’m thankful for a family patient enough to understand my perpetual need to “write something down real quick,” and I’m thankful that I no longer always have to let that need consume me, particularly when I’m having difficulty finding precisely what I want to say.

And with that said, I’m off to spend time with said family.

Happy Thanksgiving.
