Being Grateful

by Carolyn on November 26, 2009

thanksgivingHappy Thanksgiving to my American readers!  Enjoy your celebrations and your official kick off to the Christmas season.  If you’re planning on shopping with all the other crazies in Friday, know that I’ll be out there too.  Who can resist a good deal?  It’s definitely worth crossing the border for.

I was considering a post detailing all of the things I am grateful for in life, but they all really fell into four categories.  I am thankful for all of the family, friends, health, and love that I have been blessed with.  Overall, I am thankful for my life and how I am able to live it.  I’m just so darn lucky.  Despite my truly amazing run of blad luck this particular month.

Speaking of bad luck, my laptop died an apparantly quick and painless death.  It has left me with no bookmarks, no reader (never realized how inconvenient a browser based reader could be), and the prospect of all my files being gone forever.  I’ll never neglect to backup again.  Who knows?  Maybe my luck will persevere and it will be reanimated with everything intact.  It would be a Christmas miracle! ;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Coming over from SITS and your blog really has struck a nerve with me. Adding you on so as to be able to come back often to read you.

Hey Carolyn!

Oh that stinks! Maybe you found a good deal on a laptop Black Friday?
I have a fear of surging crowds. I stick close to the house that day.
Hope your Thanksgiving was the best. Thinking of you!

Hope you are doing well! A laptop death is the worst. Mine’s not backed up at all… yeah, I’m livn’ on the edge right now. I could live without a lot, but if all my photos were gone, I’d seriously be devastated.
