Instead of focusing on numbers for this post, let's just approach this Ten Things of Thankful conversationally, shall we?
I am thankful for the time youngest daughter and I had to spend at Disneyland on my birthday. I'm also thankful that I didn't slip and fall there. I made the mistake of wearing shoes with zero traction on a day when some strange misty watery stuff was falling from the sky. Yes, it rained on my birthday! I'm thankful it did--I love the rain! However, the rain did make the sidewalks slick, and I felt like a little old lady as I had windmill arms going several times. I'm thankful my daughter was there to keep my upright!
I'm also thankful that I had read about a cute birthday souvenir--bringing a birthday card for the characters to sign! Might as well act like a kid, right? I love how the personalities of the characters come out in their signatures!

I'm thankful for my mom who was planning a gift for me for decades! (Well, maybe not, but read on.) I received in the mail a folder containing copies of pages of my mom's journal that she wrote when she was my age. It was interesting to read, and to see the similarities between us.
I'm thankful for my children, who made my day special with phone calls and flowers and well-wishes, and an insistence that I am still 32! (The age which I was when youngest son first learned how old I was--and I've been stuck there ever since!)
I'm thankful the chance I had to go (later in the week) to the Senior Expo--not as a participant (still too young for that, despite what AARP says!), but as a organization member in a booth. Our local guide dog group passed out information about our puppy club. Drexel got to come and help me

I might be growing older, but I'm not ready for any sieving of potties! Yuck!
I can't come up with a segue into a "How'd your week go?" question without it sounding like I'm asking about sieves and potties--and I most certainly am not!--so just leave a comment and tell me what you are thankful for today. :-)
