Here in the States we are about to sit down to a traditional Thanksgiving meal with family, friends and sometimes even strangers. Oftentimes, the day is more about food than about gratitude, but right now I’d like to focus on gratitude.

I’ve posted a list of 100 Things I’m Grateful For in the past (check it out here). Since I do this as an exercise of spontaneity, this gratitude list is not arranged in order of importance, and I rarely edit what flows from my fingertips. So, here goes.
