....I'm grateful that I have a job (and one that I love, at that), with as much job security as anyone can ask for these days.

....I'm grateful (and super proud) that my baby brother just got his first grown-up job.  And I'm grateful that it's in Florida, which will be a rockin' place to go visit him.

....I'm grateful for a big family holiday.  On the whole, I love 'em all, I really do.

....I'm grateful for my mommy's deviled eggs and stuffing and maybe even some chicken and noodles.

....I'm grateful for the three other souls that make up my little family--Sweet Husband, Porter, and Moe.  There are no three other critters I'd rather be traveling 'round the sun with.
