30 Days of Gratitude - the final post

I didn't stray from my gratitude - but I just made a quick trip out of town, and had a few other things happen that didn't allow for me to be able to post. I'm concluding the gratitude month with a list of things I'm thankful for - just going to get to writing and stop when it gets longer than you're willing to read....or maybe longer than I'm willing to read. :)
