1. In a month where I've been ill almost every week - and scared and anxious because of it - I'm thankful for the feeling that I'm recovering and that things might actually be OK.
2. Holiday gifts await me on my desk as I step into the office this morning. I spend a happy half hour opening them and thanking colleagues.
3. I get news that the package I ordered for a friend has shipped and is on its way. She'll get it in time for Christmas.
