I will try to be good about thankfulness soon. For brief, recently I have had great cause to be thankful for:
My mother, and the wonder of comforting family ritual that is shopping
The marvelously nice people in Romulus, NY, including their EMT, ambulance, and police. Oh, and the hunters.
Modern car safety.
The fact that Geico is a far better car insurance company than they're given credit for.
My wonderful husband, who, 13 years ago this past Saturday and countless times since then has decided I'm worth his time.
The new lease and apartment key sitting on said husband's desk.
Absolutely wonderful friends on the inter-tubes and IRL.
And my father, who knows how to find the humour in any situation. Although the EMT's look at you funny when you tell them "it was a short car to start with... now it's a bit shorter."
