So I’m a few days late with the Thanksgiving post. If you follow this blog at all you know I’m not usually timely with stuff. Not my strong suit. But after such a big and tumultuous Fall, I felt it really necessary to express thanks for all that I have. Here’s a list, not necessarily in order of importance.

In Rockaway pre-Sandy

– My crazy, creative and life-loving boys (all three of them).

– Brooklyn, NYC and the incredible community that has done such amazing things in the wake of Sandy. I’m blown over by those who have devoted so much time, energy and finances to this very worthwhile cause. I feel like in the end, we all MAY be closer for it, if we allow it to happen. And if we continue to support those who still desperately need it.

– The election: Obama! Plus Elizabeth Warren and the other kick-ass women who will be fighting the good fight for all of us!

– My extended family, because we have wonderful grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins who make us laugh and give us beautiful places to go outside of the city to experience nature and open space and each other so that we can appreciate this place when we come home.

– Our friends, who make Brooklyn almost impossible to consider leaving.

– The fact that it’s been a year since I had to work for an aging mean girl, who made me feel crappy about myself pretty much daily. And almost a year since I left my job completely, allowing me more time with my guys and more time to feel crappy about myself when and if I choose!

So, what are you thankful for?
