Writer's Worksho - Thankful

We're going around the table and it's your turn to share
what you are thankful for....

A few of my mates on Facebook
have been participating in a month
of thankfulness.
I loved the idea
and seeing what they were thankful
for everyday.
I thought of participating,
but being Canadian,
our Thanksgiving was in October
so I didn't feel right about it.
But now,
well now I can share.

The last few months have been rough.
With Scott being in Kitwe,
I'm awfully lonely
and hate it.
And while I constantly 
moan and complain,
I'm thankful for a husband
who has put himself in an uncomfortable position
and never complains. He's doing what he
feels is best for his family, and 
no matter how much I whine and complain,
I know I have the better end of the bargain. 

I spent most of today
working on a paper for one
of my courses. 
It took longer than I thought
it would.
I promised Ethan this afternoon,
that we could watch a movie 
together tonight.
I am thankful for having completed my paper.
I am thankful for a son
who enjoys cuddling with me
on the sofa
while watching a Disney movie. 

When I was in Dar,
I had two great mates
that indulged me with Twilight.
We would go see the movie
and criticise and laugh.
Last year
I managed to find someone to go 
She laughed along with me.
Then she moved to Kosovo!
But tomorrow,
tomorrow I have plans with some great
mates to see Twilight.
I am thankful
to have mates
willing to see Twilight with me
even though they know
I will laugh the whole way through. 

While studying today
I sooo needed a break
and treated myself to a 
I am thankful for
cute toes and fingernails. 

I hope everyone's having
a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Have a great day even if you already experienced your Thanksgiving :)

It is easy to complain and forget how hard our spouse's work to make our life so comfortable. Thanks for the reminder.

You won't laugh at the newest Twilight. I thought all of the previous movies were a little cheesey but this last one is phenomenol. I cried a little at the end.
