Thanksgiving is in one week. The Mistakes Madeline Made opens in one week and one day. Our benefit performance for Dress for Success Boston is in one week and four days.

Thinking about the proximity of Thanksgiving and our benefit makes me think about, and I’m sorry for the cliche, what I’m thankful for.

I’m thankful that I have a job.
I’m thankful that I have a job that pays me a living wage.
I’m thankful that I have a wardrobe that will allow me to transition to a new job if that becomes necessary.
I’m thankful I can occasionally purchase an impulse item like the $16 sweater dress I got on clearance.
And that two other women in my office purchased.
And that we may wear them together one day and sing Little Shop of Horrors.
Which reminds me, I’m thankful for Steve Martin.
I’m thankful for the theater.
I’m thankful that theater can change things, maybe not dramatically (for lack of a better word), but enough to get people to think about things.
I’m thankful Holland Productions put me in touch with people who love bacon and spreadsheets as much as I do (and maybe more).

So, what are you thankful for?
