BTT - Thankful...

November 28, 2008
This week's Booking through Thursday:

Today is Thanksgiving here in the U.S.

Now, you may have noticed that the global economy isn’t exactly doing well. There’s war. Starvation. All sorts of bad, scary things going on.

So–just for today–how about sharing 7 things that you’re thankful for?

This can be about books, sure–authors you appreciate, books you love, an ode to your public library–but also, how about other things, too? Because in times like these, with bills piling up and disaster seemingly lurking around every corner, it’s more important than ever to stop and take stock of the things we’re grateful for. Family. Friends. Good health (I hope). Coffee and tea. Turkey. Sunshine. Wagging tails. Curling up with a good book.

So, how about it? Spread a little positive thinking and tell the world what there is to be thankful for.
Here's my 7:
  1. Family. My family at home, whom I miss terribly, especially around the holidays. My family here - the Mr. and the little man, and the Mr.'s extended family. I am thankful for everyone's good health and happiness.
  2. Friends. With my own family so far away, my friends have been my substitute family for a very long time. Who have been there in good times and in bad. For laughter and tears, celebrations and consolation.
  3. I am thankful that I still have a job, as does the Mr. Especially in today's economy.
  4. Books good enough to curl up with on a cold evening. With a mug of hot cocoa (or two) as the perfect accompaniment.
  5. Movies that produce warm-fuzzies, that the little man can watch with.
  6. Evenings at the symphony, where I share my delight in rediscovering my love of classical music, with my girlfriends.
  7. The flowers in my garden in spring. The leaves changing color in fall. God's presence in the beauty that surrounds us every single day.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
