I am thankful for positive people. People who look on the bright side of life. People who smile and laugh and easily forgive. People who don't hold grudges, people who let things go. I am thankful for the amazing amount of comfort people who are positive bring into my life and how intensely satisfying and enriching interacting with them is. Positive people are positively powerful! I owe so much of my sanity, my character defining moments, my small moments of happiness that make up so much of life, and my general expressions of thanks to those people in my life who have been a POSITIVE influence. A list of names on the top of my head of positive people in my life:
Stan and Helena Merrill
Kristin Crockett Montgomery
Sarah Peterson Whitmore
Ok, I know I'm leaving off several people that are always smiling, always making me laugh, and always make me feel good about myself and life in general when I interact with them...but due to my over indulgence of French chocolate cocoa dusted truffles from Costco, my brain is not functioning at full capacity. I love the power of positive thinking and positive people! (I also love the power of chocolate)...
Which brings me to my final thankfulness blog: I am SOOOOOOOOOOO thankful that Vic FINALLY let me open the ginormous box (two boxes) of chocolates that my dad gave to us. I have been begging him for weeks! My father put them in his complete trust and care and told him they were his to open at his discretion. Boy did Vic take that to heart. Peter Pan opening night??Not reason enough to bust out the truffles. Date night? Not a chance. PMS and an extreme need for chocolate? He didn't believe it. So what was the special occasion? A game of Settlers of Catan with his brother Paul! Which I won, by the way.
If you've never tried these puppies....oh dear. You're in for a real treat. You're also in for a few extra holiday pounds. Don't worry, they're totally worth it.
