Every year I make list at Thanksgiving of things I'm thankful for. I'm guessing those lists are starting to sound the very same each year! But still, it's fun to revisit the topic, even if they are all the same.

Here's what's on my mind this year:

**I'm thankful for being able to connect here with other readers. It's weird to think back to a time where I was just my own lonely self, reading and reading, with no one to talk and gush with. It's awesome this technology for sharing our interests. I hope we never take it for granted.

**I'm thankful for people who share their talents. The dude there at the top of my post for one, the authors who write the awesome books, the fellow book bloggers who end up sharing quilting tutorials, the amazing pictures I see on Instagram, the performers who I love to go watch in the theater... and on and on.

**Speaking of that, I'm thankful for all the many ways we can express creativity. Being able to create is an awesome thing, and I love that we have this aspect in our lives. It would be a dull awful life without it.

**I'm thankful for food, even it it's the bane of my existence. Stupid yummy food!

** I'm thankful for those people I spend all my time with... family, friends at work, IRL book friends... because we all know this is what it's really all about.

** I'm thankful for the ability to travel. We haven't gone to very many exotic places, but we we do get out and about to see the country now and then and it's awesome out there! I wish we could do it more, but maybe that time is coming, I hope.

** I'm thankful for health. That's a pretty big one, yes? Here's hoping it continues to stay good!

Well, so there's tons more I could list, but I'd say these are the main ones I'm pondering this year! Here's wishing you all a wonderful fun holiday weekend!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! It sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving! I think lists of things one is thankful for are wonderful, even if some of the things are the same every year. It is great that the things we appreciate stick around year after year. I too am very thankful for this community and the ability to share our passions with one another.

  3. What a fabulous list!

    I too am thankful for the ability to connect with other readers; without the blogs, I would have missed out on meeting you. I am thankful to know you,

    I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful,

  4. It is good to be so blessed. I feel the same way. And they say that health is the one thing you don't fully appreciate until you don't have it. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

  5. I love your list, particularly "stupid yummy food!" I hope you have had a wonderful, thankful weekend!
