I am currently in the process writing my post on comparative anatomy part 2. However I thought I would write a quick holiday post today and get back to the other one next week.
I hope everyone had a great thankgsiving. Mine was quite enjoyable. It was very quiet, just my husband and son–and the oven. I ended up cooking a banquet of food. Fortunately my husband took care of the turkey on the BBQ-rotisserie style so that freed the kitchen for all of the sides and desserts. By 1:30, it was all ready and we had a Thanksgiving lunch. It was yummy and we all succumbed to tryptophan coma and had a good nap in the late afternoon. In fact, my toddler slept from 3 pm to after 6 pm when I finally woke him up. So things I am thankful for:
Of course my family and friends who have always supported me in everything I do. My husband has allowed me to make huge decisions in my life that has improved my quality of life and has supported me every step. My son is a constant reminder of what is truly important. I can just look at him and stop worrying about the little things. My parents, in-laws, siblings, extended family is a wonderful network that helps ground me and remind me of the bigger picture.
My awesome career–I am so furtunate to have become a veterinarian and an avian/exotic one at that…life time goal has been fulfilled and I can appreciate it.
My current employers at Caring Hands Animal Hospital. So supportive and smart. Compassionate in everything they do. I truly can appreciate the opportunity they have given me.
My cats and their unconditional love, hairballs and all.
My clients who have willingingly followed me to my new location and allowed me to continue to bond with their pets.
My country–with all of the freedoms it provides. We have the right to freely express ourselves in peaceful ways, we have the right to disagree or agree with the governement, and we have the right to pursue life liberty and happiness.
I hope everyone has a great weekend, does not get toppled over by crowds at the black friday sales and has plenty of left overs for the next few days.
