be thankful

Good morning! Are you a Bloggie Secret Santa yet? I don't have much time to chat because I've got to finish up a project, stop by my last class, and get on the road. Why so busy you ask? Oh, well, I'm just, going home... I finally made it to Thanksgiving break baby! Until then though :) I thought I'd pop in with a festive dose of gratitude!
I am thankful for my friends, both old and new. Some may now live apart, we may have separate lives but we always prioritize time spent together. A few days ago, before I drove one of them to their airport, all three of my best friends from freshman year went our for appeThaizing. The meal and the company was scrumptious. I feel lucky to know so much love, including that from the boy :).
I am thankful for bloggies. Yesterday I received a card from my sweet little loverbug, Gliding Clam. You are too wonderful, girl, expect something your way very soon! Speaking of ladies in blogland, I am going to be spending my American holiday with another very special one. I'm so glad to be a part of such a wonderful community, I appreciate each one of you oh so very much.
I am thankful to be young. I stayed in and caught up on work for most of this past weekend but on Saturday night my roommate, her friend from home, and I all went downtown to Daisy Dukes. Neither of us rode the bull but we did bump into more old and new friends, in addition to enjoying free drinks from generous strangers ;).
I am thankful to have a healthy body and mind. Unfortunately I was unable to sign up for this session at the CNY Yoga Center (won't be able to get my money's worth since I'm spending so much time at home in the next month) but these DVDs have been amazing. I just love the way I feel afterwards, yoga never fails to center me. Oh and I finally got a headstand!
I am thankful for my family. Last Friday, I met my graduated friend Laura downtown at the Black Olive. We spent a lot of time talking about our not-entirely-perfect situations at home. You'd think it'd be a little sad, but no, it was liberating. My family is certainly not perfect, but we are real, and we love each other and I can't wait to see them tonight.
I am thankful for my opportunities. Not only do I have a chance to try discounted SprouTofu burgers ;) but I will be interning at Fitness magazine for the second time this upcoming winter break. I may not have a plan for the future but I have faith in the fact that it will work out, and in the mean time, I will continue to believe, to do, and to experience... What about you?

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."  -Melody Beatti

Happy Thanksgiving!
