WWCS Weekly Topic (Warning - Shallow Post)

The Thursday upcoming is Thanksgiving in the U.S., so let's all - American and not alike! - just share a post with what it is we're thankful for. A wonderful thing to do any time of year, I thought it'd be a nice thing to share for this week with the group!
Okay so it's Monday... And I'm feeling kind of shallow, so this post is going to be kind of "all about me". I've warned you. I'm apologizing in advance.
Things that I am thankful for:
The new job opportunity that I have been given. 2 weeks from today I start a new job. Same office, but very different work. I'm really looking forward to a change before I completely loose it. I cried in front of my Director recently... My Director is a very attractive man. I wasn't even crying about what we were discussing. He was really good about it, but I was embarassed. I needed a new challenge more than I could have possibly imagined.
Today I am grateful for Canada Post. They brought me my prize from The Knitting Coop!!! I'll post pics soon, but thanks Robin! It's a prize more perfect than you could have realized... I love it when things come together. (Yes - I think that I'm thankful for coincidences, good kharma, whatever you want to call it.)
And just to add a third thing, I'm thankful this year for US Thanksgiving, or more importantly, living close to the border and Black Friday shopping in Bangor, Maine. 5am - Old Navy. I intend to be there!
For some of the more serious things that I am thankful for, you can have a look at my Canadian Thanksgiving post, or my entry into KM's recent contest here. (You'll have to read the comments.)

Not shallow at all...the question is what are "YOU" thankful for?!
I'm glad your package arrived, I was beginning to worry. My (soft) package that was shipped to Australia and marked "Wool Yarn" was opened by customs...Yep, I'm the "Mad Yarn Bomber"!!

Yeah for a new job. Sometimes a change of "scenery" does wonders for the mind. I told Nancy after her package arrived at my house...and Ursula too...that I choose to believe the postmen (and women) are angels. They carry packages on wings of love to meet us at our most needed moment. And each's a choice to be Thankful at all. That's not shallow at all.
