November, The month of being thankful.
Why is there only one day a year to celebrate being Thankful?

Over the last few weeks, here are some of my thankful moments:

  • For friends that are willing to take time they do not have to help you out in anyway possible.

  • For a co-worker who mails me a gift card to one of my favorite restaurants to pick up dinner, when there was simply not enough time in the day to cook.

  • For technology, the way a message can arrive to me within a second from another country is simply amazing.

  • For the way you can pick up the phone and re-connect with a family member where there has been years of distance, and it not be awkward.

  • For hospitals, that have damn good hospital food.

  • For employers, who sometimes just understand.

  • For people that can just keep it real, and not feed you a bunch of BS.

  • For my iPad that travels well, to let me research extensively wherever I may be.

  • For Google, you have forever enhanced my life.

  • For Family, that comes together when it matters.

  • For complete strangers that are still so kind.

  • For my strength, wherever you come from, I have no idea.

  • For Facebook, and the way it allows you to check in with a lifelong friend.

  • For my husband, who helps pick up the pieces when I need it the most.

  • For my nieces & nephews, that can make me smile in whatever situation we may be in.

What are you thankful for?


  1. Great list, Shauna! I agree about Facebook. I have reconnected with so many old friends through social media.
    I am thankful for my health, my marriage, my stepkids, the ability to travel, my pets, and that we have a roof over our heads.
