Top Ten Tuesday #12: Top Ten Things I am Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This has been a hard sad year for my family because of the events at Sandy Hook Elementary School, yet what better way to honor Daniel than to remember the things I am thankful for.

These are the top ten things I am thankful for:

1- My Kiddo - who makes my proud everyday!

2- My family - even if we don't always agree on some things, we know we are always there for each other.

3- My best friend - my theater pal and doing other fun stuff pal, and who is always there for me when I need to talk to someone.

4- A roof over my head and food in my kitchen - given the state of things in today's world, anyone who has these basic necessities is very fortunate.

5- My health - which, except for a little congenital heart glitch, is pretty good.

6-- My friends - good company, good book talks, good food, all shared.

7-  My blogs - The Children's War and Randomly Reading, where I can talk about the books I have read and loved, and where I have met some really incredible people, and the best part is that they are all over the world and add so much more to my life just by being who and where they are.

8- Books and music - my two favorite things in life.  I would be lost without them.

9- The library - where I can get all the books and music I want.

10- My devices - these delight the geek in me and also make carrying my two favorite things, books and music, compact, easy to carry around and available 23/7/365.

Oh, yes and

11- All the countless little things that go into making life good.

What are you thankful for?


  1. What a great post! You are right- there are so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for my health and my wonderful family. I am also thankful for my home and the beautiful world I see around me. Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for all the good in our lives. :)

  2. Like you, I feel blest just to have a roof over my head and food in the pantry. I love my fireplace and I love living in a rural area.

    All those books you review remind me of how fortunate I am to live where I feel safe, where my needs are met, and I can enjoy my family.
