got tired of crying. guess i'll move on alone.

Today, I am thankful for the cold New England morning in which I just took my run, and for the long sleeves of my bottom layer, which pulled down to cover my fingers until my blood warmed them. I'm thankful for mist and sunlight and striated bright clouds and the needle-patterned layer of ice over the pond, and the squirrels scattering before me with their enormous mouthfulls of leaves, for lining their winter nests with. I'm grateful for the ability to run, and a place I love to run in. I'm grateful for the way the world moves by around me when I'm outside putting miles under my feet.

I'm thankful for a job I love and colleagues and family and family-of-choice and friends, and for engaging things to do with the time I have going spare, and I'm grateful for time going spare.

I'm grateful for hot coffee and cake for breakfast. Also, for a comfortable and safe place to sleep, and (in general) a life with nobody hitting me or yelling at me. I'm grateful for tea.

I'm grateful for the Presumptous Cat, who is currently in the kitchen yowling for her breakfast while her monkey wastes time that could be spent on cats on the internet.

And I'm grateful for the hot shower I'm about to go take, to wash the chill out of my bones.

There's nothing like a run on a chilly day to clear the mind and soul. Except, perhaps, the hot shower afterwards. I know EXACTLY what you're talking about - been there, done that many times over the past nine years. Keep up the good work!!
We're also grateful for meeting you. :)
Hot showers are one of the most Incredibly Good Things about modern living.
Great post. Happy Turkey Day! And don't forget the giblets for Presumptous Cat.
You give me hope. (And I'm not talking about the writing.)

I'm thankful for you.
I don't exactly know what happened to you, but from the title of your post, I bet we're in a similar state right now. Happy Thanksgiving, Bear. We'll get through this.
Hey you? I love ya. I thought about you a LOT yesterday while I was cooking.

I bet there's ten or fifteen more on my Friends-list alone. *g*
