At the Carnival this week we are writing about Thanksgiving. I have decided it's a good time to make a list of the things I am thankful to God for. Sometimes as I fall to sleep at night, I kind of play a little game where I name off one hundred things that I am thankful for. Today I think I'll keep the list to fifty. So in no particular order, here they are:
Family, friends, colors, rainbows, soft rain, fluffy clouds, my home, fuzzy kittens, my dancing puppy, music, movies and shows that inspire me to write, books, mountains, the ocean, the different seasons, pretty trees, my computer, funny things kids say, shopping, creative people, chocolate, dreams, technology, quiet walks in the woods, food from different cultures, birds, good night's sleep, christmas lights, the people who read my books, fire to roast marshmellows over, twinkling stars, beautiful sunrises, pretty shoes, diamonds, ideas for books that come out of nowhere, things that make me laugh, candles, a warm house, the time to write, hot cocoa, cute clothes, cookies on Christmas Day, the Bible, church, freedom to worship God, online communities like Goodreads, my blog, followers on my blog, money to pay the bills, fireworks, a big kitchen, bubble baths, warm socks, patient people, medicine for when you're sick, a clean house, Facebook games, music boxes, presents... I lost count.
Oh well. I am thankful for many things this year. Are you? Feel free to add something to the list that you are grateful for, and remember to check out Thanksgiving stories below on these other great blogs. :)
