Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

Where do I even start? There are so many things I am thankful for this year. 2008 has been a year of gratitude. Here are just a few:

  • My darling husband.
  • Our wedding, that went so well and was so fun.
  • Each of our friends and family who chipped in to make the wedding amazing.
  • America’s national parks.
  • Being able to take four weeks off for our honeymoon.
  • President Elect Barack Obama. (even after three weeks, typing that makes me weepy)
  • Still having my job.
  • A full, healthy year without any weird medical issues.
  • The internet and wonderful blogging community.
  • The Ladies Activity Club, going strong after 3 years.
  • Having everything I need in life and so much more.

How many things are you grateful for this year? I’m donating $10 for each of my “thanks” to the United Way. Want to join me?

    Emily, the United Way is a spectacularly inefficient organization. I suggest you find one where your money won’t go into overhead, but rather will go where it is needed. Sorry to sound preachy, but the United Way is a charity clearing house, which essentially inserts itself as a middleman between charities and donors. More than half of the money donated to the United Way goes to run the United Way. It’s kind of shameful.
