Today I am thankful for breath.
I am thankful for the relative warmth of 18 below. I am thankful that this warmth means that it is tolerable that the generator is not reliably functioning. I am thankful that the repairman lives five miles past my house and is coming to fix it on his way home from work tomorrow.
I am thankful for beautiful packages recieved from friends in far places.
I am thankful for two pups who take turns warming my car seat for me while they wait for human things to be done with.
I am thankful for my students, and for my teachers. Each and every one.
