I just wanted to take a moment to list some things I am grateful for. I did this last year and had fun with it so I might just make it an annual thing to add to my blog. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and also take a moment to consider your many blessings.
These are in no particular order. I am grateful for:
Indoor plumbing Food (especially today where there will be lots of it) Family, I have such an awesome family. Even my extended family is cool. Books, where would I be without them? Sunny days The Gospel of Jesus Christ Friends who put up with me even when I'm grouchy My talents Clothes Technology Cell phones (sometimes I hate them but today must be a good day) My job (even though I hate my job right now because it's so insane and everyone's stressed) Music that makes me happy or inspires me to write Music in general I guess Chocolate Ice cream (seldom in winter. what is wrong with people who eat ice cream in winter?) Hot chocolate Barnes and Noble for being my sanity sometimes School and being able to go to it and get a degree Lazy days Advil Weight loss! I'm down four pant sizes! Girls Babies' laughter (it's the best thing in the world) Hawaii Our founding Fathers who helped create this great nation The things I take for granted (the fact that I have things I take for granted means I am very blessed) Great movies Awesome tv shows (The Closer, Charmed, Medium, Bones, Heroes, Criminal Minds, etc.) Art throughout history Literature Luxury Family vacations Sweet memories of my beautiful sister, Brittany My car My life
Yeah that about covers it for this year. I am sure I missed some somewhere but...I am off to feast! Have a happy Thanksgiving, friends and kindred. :) Love you all!
