3. having a roof on the head
4. access to internet
5. food in the larder
6. an education
7. a family that never pushed me to become a doctor/engineer, and was happy to trust my decisions.
8. a family that loves me, idiosyncracies and madness included. :-)
9. a child who sleeps till 8 on school days and promptly wakes up at 7 on a weekend.
10. friends who drop in unannounced.
11. friends who stay up to talk.

Good to be thankful..but about no 17, just wanted to ask ...why were you up at 4 am to look at the moon? and why were the curtains on your windows not drawn?

(Don't tell me you were sneaking back in through the windows after being transformed to a werewolf the entire night)

Are you grateful for the moon or the window? or for someone who is giving you sleepness nights so that you can look at the moon @4?
