Every year at this time, something is happening. What is that? Well, obviously Christmas decorations go up and the music begins to play! What else?!

I jest. Thanksgiving is today.

We often forget what the holiday stands for though the idea is simple enough: be thankful. Among the excitement of Christmas approaching and being allowed to overeat, it just gets lost.

I am taking this moment before the Black Friday sales begin and before the food-induced coma takes its course to give thanks.

First and foremost, I am thankful for my parents. Without them, I wouldn’t have anything to be thankful for. Everything I have, everything I know, everything that makes me who I am is all them. Of course I am not an only child, so I have to be thankful for my sibling and her offspring. When my parents aren’t enough, I have a loving sister to turn to and two amazing kids that each possess the ability to make me forget all of my troubles. Lastly would be my adopted family member: my best friend. Imagining a world without my best friend is a world I wouldn’t want to be part of. We are strangely similar yet polar opposites and I am thankful for her not only today, but every single day.

Leaving the sweet notes in the rear-view mirror, here are a forty things that I am thankful for (in no particular order):

There you have it: what I am most thankful for. Now that being politically correct has been achieved, if you’ll excuse me I have some food to eat and shopping to plan.
