Thursday Thirteen

Today I offer up a list of things for which I am thankful.

1. My husband, who is a fine man and the love of my life!

2. My family, even the ones I don't talk to, because without them I would not be the person I am.

3. My friends, because they are the family I have created and people who love me for me.

4. Writing, or the ability to write, which seems to be something I can't stop doing.

5. My spirit, which keeps me moving and trying.

6. The rural, mountainous area we live in.

7. Books and the ability to read them!

8. My computer and the Internet, which links me to the world.

9. My community, which generally accepts me, quirks and all, and waves at me when they see me in the grocery store.

10. My parts, like fingers and limbs and eyes and ears, which may not work as well as they once did but are still functional. How easy it is to take them for granted!

11. Good food, which makes the belly sing and the heart dance (even as it clogs up the arteries!).

12. My house, which keeps me safe, warm, snug and secure. It's a wonderful place, full of love.

13. Water, which cools me down on a hot day, fills me up when I shouldn't be eating, and makes my blood flower better. Without it there is no life, so it's kind of a big one.

Thursday 13 is played by many people, and you can read what others write on Thursdays here. This is the 147th time I have played. I hope you enjoyed it.


  1. Oh ya..... #13, water. I've certainly been downing a lot of that lately.


  2. I don't know weather to be thankful for writing or not. It's like being thankful for needing air; just the way things are until there isn't any.

  3. I kind of agree with you, Alice. To be honest I almost didn't list it but I thought it might seem strange if I didn't.

  4. So many things to be grateful for! And I share your list.

  5. So much to be thankful for when we take the time to be. It's usually the simple everyday things.

  6. Great list ---you are blessed! Happy TT!

  7. #13 is essential.

  8. Great to count our blessings. We are thankful you keep writing! And thankful for you.

  9. really awesome gratefulness - i wanna have most of that and be grateful :) esp a husband!

    Faux Pas not Funky

  10. I love your list... and it is so good to take the time to count your blessings. I reminds me a song we used to sing as kids... Count your blessings name them one by one...
