6th Day of Gratitude--I'm thankful for road trips. They give you a chance to learn, to socialize, and to enjoy that which is different. They also make you realize how wonderful home is, but that's another day...

When I was in school--back in the Dark Ages--girls had to wear dresses to school. They had to be of a certain length (which you often negated by rolling the waistband a time or two when you got on the bus). On my 5th Day of Gratitude, I'm thankful for pants--jeans, sweatpants, even dress pants--because they are WARM.

On my 3rd day of Gratitude, I'm thankful that I voted (less than 100 years ago women couldn't) and that I got to listen to Chris Botti's rendition of the national anthem that I missed last night. Being a day late did nothing to lessen the joy of the hearing.

I don't necessarily agree with Brittany Maynard's decision, but since I haven't walked in her shoes, I'm certainly not going to judge her. My sympathy is with her family, particularly her mother, who just suffered the worst loss there is. On my 2nd day of Gratitude, I'm thankful Oregon provided a safe place for Ms. Maynard to "go gently into that good night" as opposed to having to fight a battle she no longer wanted to fight.
