a little late

As a friend has stated, "Forgive me blogspot. It has been a month since my last "confession." :) That being said, this is going to be too late for Thanksgiving and too early for Christmas. My mom and I were talking the other day and she mentioned how blessed I was that I always found really good friends where-ever I lived. As I thought about that, I realized that she was very true. I have been blessed...in so many ways.

I am thankful for my family who love me and support me as I bounce all over the country.
I am thankful for clothes warm enough that I can still ride my bike even though the temp drops into the low 20s.
I am thankful for a second job that makes it possible to still have an apartment, food, and gas.
I am thankful for friends (both close to me and far away) who randomly call me up to see how I 've been doing.
I am thankful for the fact that I am able to make it home for Christmas this year.

That is made possible by some of those aforementioned friends. They wanted to give me a Christmas present so they bought my tickets.

Finally, I am thankful that there is a reason for Christmas (and Thanksgiving if you think about it)

Glad to see you're confessing again. :)

I couldn't help but shiver when you mentioned riding your bike in such cold weather. Yikes!
