This Thanksgiving morning I am currently sitting in bed at Ed’s mother’s house hearing the sounds of recently-aquired family members downstairs. It’s an interesting feeling having been married less than a year now to be getting to know these people as family. Don’t know how to describe it exactly, but it’s been a good experience.

I want to list 10 things that I am thankful for in honor of Thanksgiving.

  • Family
  • Freedom
  • Freethought, and the freedom to express it.
  • My Health
  • Good water and food, not something that everyone in the world has.
  • A good job, especially in a time of high unemployment.
  • Science, for technology and for insights into who we are and where we come from.
  • Good friends
  • Good books
  • All the people who have gone before who have fought and sacrificed much for freedom for Americans, for women, and for atheists.

And that is a lot to be Thankful for.
