Top Ten Things We Are Thankful For

With Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday in the USA, we thought it would be fun to see what we're all thankful for! This can be bookish or not. It's completely up to you!

Jana says....

- I'm thankful for where I am in my life! This has been a hard year for me, and full of a lot of big changes. Those changes have turned my life into something great, though, and I'm happy about where I'm headed!

- I'm thankful I have such an awesome mom, who understands me. We're best friends!

- I'm thankful for warmth! Warm food, drinks, blankets, homes, beds, people. It has been SO cold, and I have been SO sick the last week. I'm so thankful for the blessing it is to be warm.

- I'm thankful for those books that make you never want to read again, because you know that the next book will never top that one. 

Jen says...


- I'm thankful for my public library: the majority of the books I've read this year have been borrowed from the library. I'd be lost without the library!

- I'm thankful for music: listening to music is such an outlet for me. There are songs I can listen to twenty times in a row and never get sick of them. Hans Christian Andersen said one of my favorite quotes, "where words fail, music speaks".

- I'm thankful for hot drinks: specifically coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. It's been brutally cold in New England for the past few days and hot drinks have been heavenly.

- I'm thankful for TB&TB girls: I've loved participating in this blog with them over the past few years! I love reading their individual posts, getting book recommendations and overall getting to know all of them. Thanks ladies, you rock! :)

Jamie says...

- I'm thankful for having a great first year of marriage: We've certainly had our trials this year as newlyweds but we've managed to make the best of it. Seriously, some days we just sit down and laugh and poke fun at the messes of life.

- I'm thankful for being an auntie: There's nothing so beautiful as watching my two nieces (2 years & 3 months) grow up. I always get so teary eyed talking about them but I would do anything for those babies.

What are you thankful for this year? Have a great Thanksgiving, friends!

  1. My local library made my list this year, too! I love buying books as much as the next person, but this year I have really tried to use my library whenever possible. It's part of a great system, and I'm so thankful to have it!

  9. I love how you all pointed out the small, mundane things of life that we all take for granted every day, hardly realizing that they really are such huge, amazing blessings! Thanks for reminding me to be grateful for "little" things like homes, beds, the library, and having a sense of humor. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

  30. Jamie Congrats on 1 year marriage. Love that you can laugh now about some of the messes. I have been married 23 years and love it. Do not get me wrong there were some rough times but we stuck it out and that is what made our marriage so strong now.

    Jana love that you are happy where you are in life now. Best feeling ever!

    Jen I am thankful for hot drinks too as it is cold in my neck of the woods too.

  32. Thankful for my family, my friends, my doctors, my cat, and of course BOOKS - I took Melissa, the Feminist Texican's lead, and did my list as "Top Ten Books I'm Thankful For" :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Awesome list!!
    I see so many people included library in their list - I did too!
    Libraries are amazing places, and I would never be able to read all the books I did because I couldn't afford them all. :-)

    And music too... oh yes.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
