This Is Your Life

I've found this 30 Days of Thanksgiving to be a difficult writing prompt. Not because I can't think of anything to be thankful for, but because I simultaneously set myself the challenge of also taking a photograph of each day's subject. That's what has been hard. I either can't think of what to photograph to go along with what is in my head, or I don't think of what to write about until late at night like this, by which time I've lost the chance to take a good photo during the day. (Hence the mildly extremely pretentious self portraits on several days!)

So today, if I could write about anything I'm thankful for without having to think of a photographable object to go with it, I'd be thankful for... well, my whole life! I really truly love my life. I love my hobbies, my friends, my jobs, my family, my opportunities, my experiences, my abilities - I'm just genuinely happy with the life that I have. It's not perfect, but it's great. I'm married to a guy I love and have fun with, I have three amazingly awesome children, I have the best in-laws you could ask for, I have wonderful parents and brothers, I get to do fun stuff like be on stage and write (and tour Scotland and write!), I've travelled to so many different countries... och, I'm just really happy and really thankful for everything!

Lame, isn't it, lumping it all in together, but seriously, I'm thankful for my awesome life full of awesome experiences.

And since I *must* find a photo that expresses that, here's a photo from tonight's panto, getting to do one of the great things I love to do, be on stage. Alas, I bring you Jack and Princess Alice, together at last, together forever!

(I'm also thankful for how good my legs look in that costume...)
