Please list three things that you are thankful for this year:
1. My unconditionally accepting partner.
2. Visit with my sister for the first time since her sobriety.
3. Good job with health insurance and benefits.
Please keep this to remind yourself each day of how much we have to be thankful for.
The above was written Thanksgiving 2002 or 2003 when we had dinner at my in-law's home. Playing into my typical "be thankful" sort of attitude thing, I had printed off little pieces of paper for each person to fill out just prior to dinner and then we were going to go around the table and each of us read our own at dinner time. And this was my list. I just found it today while going through an extensive desk clean out. I think I'll keep the little piece of paper. It's a good reminder.
