Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s is Thanksgiving/Thankful Freebie. I’m going with Ten Things I’m Thankful For.
1. My Husband
You know how people say relationships / marriage are hard work? That’s not the case for me. My husband is amazing and I’m so thankful to have him in my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner or a better father for my child. I am so grateful for the love and support he gives me.
2. My Daughter
Every day I’m thankful I got to the chance to be her mother. She’s the coolest 10-year-old I know. She’s a whole lot sweet and a little bit sassy. I’ve been so lucky to be her mom.
3. My Family
The older I get, the more appreciative I am of my family. I was truly blessed with an amazing mom, dad, and sister. I also have a great extended family including other relatives and the ones I added when I married my husband.
4. My Friends
Good friends are important. I have several of them. I have my two oldest, closest friends. They are there for me when I need it, and we support each other in everything. Then, I have my “mom” friends. These are ladies who I met when my daughter was in preschool. Our kids have become close and so have we. It’s nice to have these ladies in my life. Finally, I have what one of my friends dubs “The Wives Club”. It’s a bunch of my husband’s friends’ wives. We’ve gotten close the last couple of years. We even started our own book group.
5. Blogger Friends
I had no idea how much I would come to appreciate the people I met while blogging. It’s so nice to have friends to talk about books with.
How can I not be thankful for books? They take me on journeys I wouldn’t experience otherwise. They cure boredom, entertain, and inform.
7. Good Music
Everyone’s idea of good music is different, but I’m thankful for the music I love. It is the background to life. It is mood enhancing.
8. The Internet
What did we do before the internet? How would I help my daughter with her math homework or answer her weird questions? How would I be able to look up facts about actors while watching T.V.?
9. My New Puppy
She makes me smile! I thought I wasn’t ready for another dog when we got her, but she has brightened up my life. Now, if she would just hurry up and be potty trained…
10. Indoor Plumbing
This may seem like an odd thing to be thankful for, but I am. Every time someone asks if you want to go back in history for some reason, I always think only if there’s indoor plumbing.
