Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s list has a Thanksgiving theme. That leaves things rather open-ended and so I have decided to go with the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. I know that it isn’t bookish but that’s okay with me. Also, there are only 9 but that’s just the way it is going to be.
1. My Family
I love my family to pieces. My sister is going to be coming home tomorrow and will stay through Thanksgiving weekend. It is going to be great. I am praying though that the roads won’t be too bad. It doesn’t look so good now… 🙁
2. My Faith
My faith is super important to me. You might have noticed that from my blog url. I’m not ashamed of my faith nor am I going to hide it. Sure, I don’t always post about it. Actually, I have realized that I don’t post about my faith much at all. Maybe I should get a few more Catholic-y posts in the making. 🙂
3. My Job
I love my job even though I, at times, complain often about it. I love teaching. I love working with the little monsters in the school. I just wish they didn’t have to share their sickness with me. I am finally starting to feel better, though.
4. My Health
Overall, I am pretty healthy. Sure, I have celiac and other food allergies. Sure, I have other issues as well that I don’t feel like talking about. However, I have so much that I need to be thankful for. I can take care of myself. I can breath without an oxygen tank. I can walk. I can run. I am pretty lucky.
5. My Country
Even though there are some things I don’t like too much about my country, I am very blessed to have been born and raised in the United States of America. This is a pretty great country and I really do love it, even though the government is completely crazy (aren’t all governments?).
6. My State
I LOVE Montana. While I was not blessed enough to grow up here, I do live here now and have for about two years. I love it here. I love the mountains and the beautiful sunrises/sunsets. I just love it!
7. My Town
There are always going to be things about small towns that drive you crazy. I can say especially in Montana since it is over 100 miles to the nearest town/city capable of supporting a Wal-Mart. However, this town is pretty great and really takes care of it’s own people. I love it here and it is a great place to live.
8. My Students
This includes the crazy monsters from my job and the crazy monsters from my religious education classes. I love them all. They are great even though they can drive me completely crazy at times. It may be a bit insane for me to be thankful for them but I really do care about all of them.
9. My Books
Could this list possibly be complete without books? Nope. Books definitely needed to be included. I am so very thankful for the books that I own and want to own and all the authors that wrote and continue to write them. I am thankful for all of the people in the bookish community.
These are the things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. Feel free to share yours as well and check out the rest of them at The Broke and the Bookish.
