I am thankful for sympathetic ears. I am thankful for people in my life who know I'm smart and inquisitive, who know I'm worth more than how I'm being treated. I am thankful that, as a woman in science, I've never had to be like her to be where I am today. I've never had to be heartless. I've never had to choose between my family and my career. I'm thankful that I never believed it to be about money, but the satisfaction of a job well done. I am thankful that this is temporary. I am thankful for my crazy whack-a-doodle family. I am thankful for my brother and sister-in-law who bought us dinner last night. And I'm thankful, so thankful, that this time next week, I'll some place other then here. Have a wonderful weekend!
