In this thing called life, there is endless amount of things to be grateful for. Sometimes, lost in the shuffle of our day to day lives, I do forget all of the things I am most grateful for. As we approach Thanksgiving, a day to reflect on these things, and on the greater privilege that is living in this country, it’s the ideal time to talk about things I’m grateful for.
Some of these are small things. Others are bigger, more important things. But no matter what, I don’t think anything that we are grateful for should be taken for granted.
Things to be Grateful For
1: [THE] ARMED FORCES
Always grateful for the men and women who defend this country, who fought and are fighting to protect this free nation.
I mean, this is a website where we celebrate books and bookish things, so I kind of have to mention this, right?
3: COURAGE OF THOUGHT
I’m so grateful for people who stand up, and apart rather than follow a narrative.
I’ve really been into creating digital things for this website, and I’m loving that form of creativity. Here’s hoping in 2021 I’m able to do more after the “basic” things I’ve worked on this year.
Family is one of life’s greatest treasures. They’re always in your corner.
Gratitude for home is often overlooked I think, but thank goodness for a home, and for the people inside it.
This may seem silly, but do we take the power of laughter for granted? I feel like we do.
I’m not a nature person, but in this last month while I was on a walk (which I am also not a fan of), I was amazed at the beautiful autumn colors, and how stunning they look against the blue canvas that is the sky. Makes one stop and realize how marvelous His creation really is.
9: TV BINGING
I’ve been watching WAY too many TV shows of late, and it’s a problem. Still, there’s nothing that makes one laugh-out-loud quite like select ½ hour comedies.
10: WARM COCOA
I don’t drink cocoa in the traditional sense, but for the purpose of this list, I’m calling it this. I’ll also say I’m still loving my cranberry Bubbl’r; it’s like my end of day pick-me-up.
