To the powers that be, thank you for:
My wonderful parents.
Allowing me to get to know pretty much all of my grandparents.
Allowing me to know several great-grandparents.
Bringing Miss Harriet into my life. (Although, next time, I politely request a cat that doesn't shed so much and doesn't leave me hairballs to step on in the middle of the night)
Letting my parents buy me a horse when I was in high school; that was fun.
Bestowing on me the bestest best friend a girl could ask for.
Granting me the wisdom that I would not survive prison so that I wouldn't cause any bodily harm to the old psycho roomie or the old psycho co-worker.
Giving me the opportunity to get my extremely stressed self away from night shift and the horrible excuse for management. I really do appreciate that.
Giving me the opportunity to work with my grandparents on their ranch. In the daylight.
The opportunities for travel that I've had - to Florida, Chicago, the East Coast trip in high school, and the cruise Mom and I took.
Oh and home-made chocolate chip cookies. Those are delish.
