Happy Thanksgiving!

 


I've been trying to be more aware of my blessings this month, and to be more grateful for all that I have. So this year I thought I'd do an A-to-Z gratitude post (though I cheated a bit with the letter X). Here are just a few of the many reasons I have to be grateful for this year:

Alien tape! (because it really works.)
B  Books, bubble baths, booster shots, and blogging buddies
C  Chocolate and crossword puzzles
D  Days off from work!
E  Elephants and electricity. 
Family, friends, and freedom
Game nights every month and garbage trucks
Hawaii (one of my most favorite vacation spots)
the Internet
Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice
Kind comments on all my blog posts from all of you...THANK YOU! 
Libraries!
Music...all kinds. 
Nieces and Nephews
Owls (and other birds)
Peanuts and popcorn (my two favorite snacks)
Quilts and quiet time
Road trips!
Sleeping in.  😴
T  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes & gravy...YUM!
U  Utah's scenic beauty from Arches to Zions National Parks
Vacations!
Wunderbrow long-lasting brow gel
all the eXperiences in life, good and bad, that have helped shape me
Yoga
Zebra pens and zip-up hoodies (my favorite weekend wear)




Wishing you and your family a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Most of us are definitely grateful for D. I haven't heard of Alien tape before but any tape is useful. Books, definitely, blogging buddies, absolutely. I wish I can do sleeping in but at last, I seem to wake up early no matter the day. I think we all need vacations. Love zip-up hoodies. Everything's great on your list.

    Have a lovely Thanksgiving day.
