1001 things to be thankful for

I don't have time to write them all down, but as I was sitting at lunch listening to lots of people complain about "their problems" I suddenly mentally was transported back to Rwanda, where for 21 days I don't recall anyone talking about their problems - they maybe had minor set backs but they were all looking forward to the future, so I think everyone who reads this blog should leave a comment with at least 10 things they're happy/thankful for today! To start you off I'll lead with:
  1. I have a job
  2. I have the best sister in the world
  3. I have a flat to live in with heat
  4. I have more than £50 in my bank account
  5. I have clothes which fit me and I can clean on a regular basis in a machine (not by hand in a sink)
  6. I have wonderful friends AROUND the world
  7. I have the best loving, supportive, open minded parents in the world
  8. I am able to eat more than one meal a day
  9. I am able to have hot running water at home
  10. I met some of the most amazing people in Rwanda

10 things... not necessarily the top ten and in no particular order:

1. Freddy

2. Wonderful family and friends

3. Readily available clean, safe water.

4. Few enough problems in my life that I can worry about my "problems".

5. Excellent pizza 1/4 mile from where I work.

6. My co-workers and I respect one another.

7. My career sometimes involves blowing things up.

8. Photography - all of it. Artists, engineers, equipment, and the good fortune to be part of it.

9. The Bill of Rights

10. Term limits
