Some things to be thankful for

A few years ago, we were in a small group (our church calls them "home groups" now, whether or not they meet in someone's home) where we did "spiritual formation" exercises. One exercise related to thankfulness. The idea was to write down things you're thankful for... for 10 minutes or something like this.

Seeing that we're coming up on Thanksgiving, I thought I'd give it a shot again.
  1. A roof over my head
  2. A loving, faithful, energetic, spiritual and sexy wife
  3. Lovely children who are nicer and kinder and smarter and more beautiful and more spiritual than we had any right to expect
  4. Laughter and music and creativity in my house
  5. Gainful employment
  6. Interesting work to do there -- things to learn, code to write, issues to fix
  7. Wonderful colleagues
  8. A church family with solid teaching, great sermons, stimulating fellowship
  9. Faithful and affectionate dog
  10. Crisp fall days
  11. Delicious food from my kitchen
  12. My wife and daughter who just returned from a visit to the dentist!
Going to stop here; more later. Happy thanksgiving!
