Yesterday I joked that I was mostly thankful for the movie Pitch Perfect and chocolate almonds.
While there are shreds of truth in there (Acascuse me?), I am really most-thankful for my son, the ever-mentioned and ofetn hollered at Mascot, the rediculously cute guy that I have been calling my fella for the past 5 years, 3 months, and 28 days (or so), my dad, who now parents me from beyond (and sometimes in the form of a blue jay - long story), and my mom (aka Mumji), who's voice is what keeps me here*.
With those four out of the way, I can get on to the business of listing some of the random things that I am thankful for:
- My wonderful, carefully-curated collection of friends. I love them all to bits. Even the weird ones.
- My Group Power and Spin classes and all the energy that I get from them. The more I expend, the more I find is returned. Funny, that.
- On a related note, I am thankful for good health and a thick, shiny coat. And the ability to lift heavy things with enthusiasm.
- My job. As crazy as it can get, it is like an education and an experience wrapped in a blueberry pancake and served in a commemorative tote bag of chili.
- My sense of humour. Oh, lord... without it I think I would've gone bonkers by now.
- Irony. See humour.
- Aveda "be curly" curl enhancer. In a perfect world, highly effective, nice smelling hair products would flow from special taps in our bathrooms. Until we can make that happen (we should maybe get rid of world hunger first), there is this stuff.
- Clean air, clean water, farmers who grow good, clean food. And coffee. Cups and cups of coffee.
*Ok, wait...that's a Jann Arden lyric.
