*…Gary, who loves me and puts up with me even on days I tell bad-but-funny-to-me jokes or get obsessive-compulsive about cleaning the house!
*…the kids being with us next week for Thanksgiving.
*…my new job; it still amazes me to come to a professional, respected setting each day and feel supported in what I do.
*…online shopping. Without it, no one would be getting any Christmas presents, no matter how good they have been!
*…the chilly mornings we’ve been having, though being snuggled up in a blanket with Gary makes it very, very difficult to get out of bed!
*…the smell of coffee, even though I can’t stand to drink the stuff.
*…each time I see one of the kids smile or hear them laugh, after so many tears.
*…casual-day Fridays without the boss, and looking forward to a great weekend 🙂

A painting of this picture hung in my grandparent’s kitchen, and seeing it brings back so many memories!
The photographer, Eric Enstrom, has said of the photo on which this painting is based, “I wanted to take a picture that would show people that even though they had to do without many things because of the war they still had much to be thankful for.”
