*I’m late posting this because I was without internet access for many days. Sorry friends.*
It’s Thursday and I am still not at work and it’s great.
I’m thankful for visiting my friend in Colorado. I was very fortunate to have this entire week off from work so I took advantage of it and boarded a plane to visit my friend Danielle.
I’m thankful for friends. Especially the ones that can pick up right where we left off the last time we saw each other. Long distance relationships are tricky. It’s hard to always call each other to catch up. It’s hard to see each other when they are more than a short car drive away and you both have minimal vacation time. But I love when it’s like you never weren’t together. Even after a month, a year, or 3 years, it doesn’t matter. Those friendships don’t miss a beat.
I’m thankful for nice weather. It has been unseasonably warm in Chicago with very little snow. Although this means I can’t go skiing, I’ll take it because warm weather is hard to come by in December. I’ve been enjoying walks with my mom without winter coats or bundling up and it’s great.
I’m thankful for family. I was able to spend Christmas with my family and that made me very happy :) It was quite hectic as the Farmer and I attended somewhere around 5 Christmas celebrations, but I enjoyed it. We spent a lot of quality time with all our families and ate way too much delicious food. Card games, board games, and a little gambling was included.
I’m thankful for 2011. Another year is almost in the books folks. 2011 was certainly nothing to complain about. I’ve had many blessings this year and am very thankful for those. Many changes have occurred in my life, but I think most of them have been for the better.
