What I am thankful for this year

In a lot of ways, this has been a good year— maybe not all good, but I have plenty to be thankful for. Here are the highlights:

Our son is engaged to a wonderful young woman whom we love already.

Our daughter is in her senior year at ASU and is doing well at school; and in May she will be home for a while.

I sold a short story! With my limited short story output, that's a 16% sell rate.

I have a job that pays well, doing work I enjoy (most of the time).

I have lots of good friends!

I got to go to three conventions in 2010, and one of them was World Fantasy.

I have a new Kindle 3.

Tomorrow I get to eat a turkey dinner, and I only have to make pumpkin pie.

So what are you most thankful for?
