2013 Gratitude List


Each year on American Thanksgiving, I post a list of the first 50 things that I’m grateful for, from the past year. Not all of them are terribly serious-and they really shouldn’t be. There’s no actual ranking to any of it. I don’t love canned pumpkin over my health, I guess is what I’m saying.

The only ‘rule’ is that you don’t look at past year’s entries prior to writing this year’s. It’s interesting to see what changes from year to year. This year is probably less in-depth than the past couple of years. This was a rough year, and some of these things cross into that deep, dark area known as ‘a blogger’s private life.’
