Giving thanks

What am I thankful for? I've been thinking about this question. It's actually kind of nice to think about this question. To actually spend some time focusing only on the positives of life. Here are some things that I've come up with...

Really great friends near and far
Heat-good heating that warms our apt from the neg temps outside
Good food and my ability to cook well
A great job with awesome students and a fully supportive administration
Professional football, especially the Packers---Go Pack!
Airplanes and the freedom of travel that they bring
The happiness that comes from watching Avery grow into a young man
The Wii and the people who designed it
My blog, the outlet it gives me, and the connection with friends that it allows
A vehicle that starts
Snow and the beauty that it brings to Bethel
Slippers and wool socks
Box wine
Wireless internet
Really great books
Puppy kisses (while they last)
