With the end of Thanksgiving comes the end of a really nice season for me, a season that allows me to share whimsy and fun with people I know well or not so well. Christmas season gets a lot more good press: it’s all about giving (allegedly), good cheer, mulled wine, warm fires. All of that is well and good, but the Thanksgiving season allows for more introspection. For my final act of the Thanksgiving season, I present to you an extensive, but not exhaustive, list of things I am thankful for:

Turkey being a lean protein
My family
A mercifully mild November
Having a job in my chosen field
That my dog remembers me even though I only see him a few times a year
Mail from Sam
Group texts
Cheap tickets to France
Being able to run again
Florence the cat
My house and my cat family
Being able to go to bed early
Sparkling water
Kind words over drinks
My car
Reasonably priced wine

Without further introspection, it’s time to dive headfirst into a box of Christmas ornaments, as I continue to make my house in Texas my home. Merry, merry
