What I'm GRATEFUL for this year

It's beautiful, bright, and sunny here in Brooklyn this THANKSGIVING DAY, and I'm GRATEFUL that I was able to SLEEP IN, which I'll probably also do tomorrow. With my six-day workweek, sleeping in is truly a RARITY. I'm also grateful for my two weeks of vacation that starts on Monday. It's my first one since I took a three-month-long break early in 2011. I will be very busy getting projects done and getting things organized; I also hope to find a writing job or two. Still, it will be a nice rest from the classroom.

With many people in the area still DEALING WITH TREMENDOUS devastation and loss caused by hurricane Sandy, I'm so thankful for the HUMBLE roof over my head and the WHOLESOME food that I can put on our table. I'm thankful for my job, my projects, for health, family, and friends, for hardworking students, for you all, my increasing number of followers here at the small English blog, at the small guide site, on Facebook, and on Twitter, and for the chance to share and teach what I know so I can make a difference, whether big or small, in others. THANK YOU!

I wish you all a wonderful, awesome, fantastic THANKSGIVING DAY.
