Because one day of Thanksgiving is not enough (6/7)

Today, a hodgepodge -- this is a kind of thankfulness that I feel almost every day, and the days that I don't feel it, I definitely think I'm doing it wrong: I'm thankful for the large and small details that make a day good.

I'm thankful for snuggles, for belly laughs, for droplets of water hanging from the tips of branches, for purring cats, sunny walks, music that makes moving involuntary. I'm grateful for fuzzy blankets and impromptu picnics, for a warm bed, finding a wad of dollar bills in last year's winter coat, anonymous gifts and unprompted compliments. I'm thankful for inside jokes, familiarity, comfort, and all the things that make a day familiar, and all the things that make it novel.
