For the past twelve years I've been doing some monthly freelance work for a nonprofit company. I've done other work in addition to the work for this company, but for the past few years I've solely been working with them. The work is sweet---straight-forward desktop publishing for a legal advertising publication. I don't have to read, write, edit, research, or anything else---simply format the pages. The pay is great, too!

Well, I just received a call a few minutes ago notifying me that the publication will no longer be printed. I'm overjoyed for the trees---I wish all publications would go digital. However, since it's going digital, they won't be needing my services much longer.

Why am I writing this on a Thankful Thursday you might be wondering. Well, it's because I'm thankful for options. You see, when one door closes there are always others that appear for you to open up.Even though I have no idea what door I'll be walking through next, I know one exists for me. The world is filled with options and life is never hopeless, as some may believe.I am thankful for options in life.
