Ten things I’m thankful for

I know this post is four days late. I read somewhere that people get depressed around the holidays because they have in mind how things are supposed to be. The expectations are rarely met, making some people very sad. I have decided to have low expectations this holiday season. I have decided I won’t kill myself trying to make everything perfect. My goal this holiday season is to ski, enjoy myself and have an open heart. I also intend to count my blessings. Here are ten:

1) Forgiveness.
2) I am warm.
3) With time, tension diminishes.
4) Crazy people keep doing crazy things, keeping me in a job. See story here.
5) Long johns.
6) Online banking.
7) The sun will return.
8)) Books.
9) 100 percent chance of a white Christmas.
10) I finally have medical insurance.

    Love your blog, I’m over in the Yukon and totally get where you’re coming from. The daylight especially… but hey, look at it this way – the days will start getting LONGER in THREE WEEKS!!!!!! Yay.

    I’ve spent some time up your way, have a friend on Murphy Dome Rd. so it’s great to keep kind of connected with the area. 🙂
