I really do not know what to write about today.  I can tell you that I am grateful for my life in general, but then you have already read that.  So today I am grateful for the month of December.

People are generally more friendly in December, because of the holidays; they probably feel that they should be.  I can take some extended time off from work and spend it with my family, as they take the same time off from school.  It is the month in which I was born, so there is that celebration as well; and then last but not least, there is always very good food to be eaten.  I think that I have gained several pounds this month already.  I call it putting on my winter coat.

For all of that, I am grateful.
