I am thankful for a decent haircut, the festive spirit, not having a silly moustache, skyping with my mum, and the glorious sunshine on a cold day.
I am thankful for the unusual sight of a hundred or more birds on our back lawn yesterday, for getting a bunch of small tasks done yesterday, for being able to snap Netflix while playing video games on XBOX One, for laughter, and for spending time with family,
Today, I am grateful for a challenging job, for a fun impromptu evening with Chrissy, for a relaxing day at home, for getting a chance to try $128/lb ham (without paying for it or stealing it), and for heating, because it is cold outside.
I am thankful for the delicious chicken chili my wife made, for a chance to go to the movies with her, for challenging work, for the things I've learned this year, and for laughter.
I am thankful for winning a Microsoft Surface 2, for professionals who ask for a second opinion rather than fear shame of uncertainty, for the opportunity to help my wife, for coffee, and for those who take the time to read my blog.
