Food, Friends and John Lennon – What I’m Thankful For

I’m a pretty happy person. Sure, I have my share of bad days and of course I get frustrated from time to time. But especially during those times, I try to remind myself to be thankful and count my blessings. So I’d like to take a moment to share some of the things for which I’m thankful – starting of course with the really important stuff.

I’m thankful for pumpkin-flavored…everything! This time of year, I can’t have enough pumpkin bread, pumpkin spice coffee and pumpkin pie. I’m thankful for snow. Seriously, I love snow. I’m thankful to be strong and injury-free so I’m able to run anytime I please. Speaking of running, I’m also thankful for dogs. Not only are they sweet, playful creatures, they chase me when I run through their neighborhood – my mile time is never better! I’m thankful for the Beatles – and music in general. Lastly, I’m thankful for fruits, vegetables and tofu being readily available at the supermarket. As you can imagine, it’s tough being a vegetarian in the Midwest!

Okay, on a more serious note, I’m thankful for the truly important blessings in my life. I’m thankful Denise decided to take a big risk and start her own agency so that I could have a wonderful job that I love going to everyday. I’m thankful for my co-workers – we’re a great team and a family, and we always manage to make everything come together. I’m thankful for the clients, ad reps, editors and other industry friends I get to work with on a daily basis. I’m thankful for my friends and family, and the fact that many of them live here in Fargo. Finally, I’m thankful for my health, both mental and physical, and I’m thankful that I’m happy each and every day.

I hope you’re all thankful for the wonderful things in your life – Happy Thanksgiving! Now gather with friends, put on some music and eat.
