Last week I decided to post a list of the three things I loved that week. Well now that I’ve made that decision I’m going to change it. For one week only!
This week I am going to post the three things I’m most thankful for in honor of America’s Thanksgiving Day. Some people might have noticed on Facebook earlier this month that people were posting one thing a day they were thankful for. For me most of those people are no longer posting so for those out there that have kept it up the entire month, kudos to you. I did not do this. Not because I’m not thankful for things, because I am. But because I don’t normally get all mushy on the internet. Sometimes, but when I do it’s normally something like:
“Oh my god everyone you have to go see Expendables 2. It was amazing and I love it so much. I need everyone to go see it and share in my love for the awesome that was the Expendables 2.”
That might actually have been a post on my Facebook. Anyway, I am not going to get mushy on here either. It’s too easy for me to do. I love my family and I am incredibly thankful for how much they’ve done for me and the way they raised me and the way they love me and just everything about them. I could dedicate an entire series of posts to each member of my family telling you how awesome they are and how much I love them. But that would be boring for people to read and I would probably end up over sharing and get my wonderful amazing family pissed off at me.
On the other hand I don’t want to be flip about what I post because a lot of people consider saying what you’re thankful for to be serious business. That is the same reason why when everyone started posting what they were thankful for on Facebook I didn’t start posting silly stuff like, I’m thankful for the ability to eat desert before dinner because I’m an adult and no longer live at home; or I’m thankful for the knowledge of how to drive correctly, the world would be a wonderful place if everyone else shared my knowledge. I was tempted but I resisted and I will not do that one here.
Without silly or mushy I really don’t know what to post. I guess I’ll have to be really general and generic which kind of sucks and pretty much defeats the purpose of posting three things I’m thankful for on Thanksgiving day. I don’t like being generic or general, I like over sharing and being specific; but I can’t appear weak on the internet or I will eaten and I don’t want to appear too silly or I will never be taken seriously so I guess I will have to be general and generic.
I’m thankful for the weather, religion, and politics.
