I can't believe I missed this! It must have been started during my post-wedding avoidance of anything remotely related to weddings. Thanks for mentioning me in the OP, RanAway! :)
I'm grateful that I have a wonderful husband and a supportive family. I'm thankful that they're all in good health, especially my SIL after her adventure last year with thyroid cancer.
I'm thankful for my education. And I'm thankful that I've had the opportunity to pursue my education and the brains to excel at it.
I'm also grateful for artists, because if there weren't artists, I'd have to find myself a much more boring career.
And I'm thankful for all the random chances and good AND bad decisions that have led me to where I am now...cause as it turns out, I'm in a pretty good place.
I'm also thankful that a certain academic advisor who shall remain nameless has finally decided that he should read my dissertation draft after not looking at it for nearly a year...cause I sure hate paying for one credit a semester so that it can sit in his office unread, and I'd like to finish it sometime.
On a lighter note, I'm thankful right now that Red Plum flavored Nantucket Nectars is good. I bought one thinking, 'Hmm, that sounds interesting,' and it would have bugged me if it was bad.
