What Have You Appreciated About 2010?

A big chill is working its way into Colorado today with cold temperatures and snow predicted.  We have been very dry and mild all Fall, which means the trails are clear and the bike riding safe.  I am an outdoor exerciser and this fall has been super for running, hiking and biking.  This could all change and I hope the forecasters are wrong. 

2010 is quickly coming to an end, what do you feel grateful about this year?  What has been positive about 2010 for you?  I have been very blessed and have much to be grateful for:
