Thursday Thirteen, November 19

Since I will not likely be posting a Thursday Thirteen next week, seeing as it is Thanksgiving and all. I thought that I would write 13 things that I am thankful for today! A little early I know, but honestly, is it ever too early to be thankful for anything?

Okay, here goes!

I am thankful for (not in any particular order)

1. my kids
2. my husband
3. my extended family
4. lazy days
5. the dishwasher
6. my large capacity washer and dryer
7. that we have more than we need of healthy food
8. that we are able to help and give to others
9. that I have found a true friend that I finally have something in common with (you know who you are, my laundry soap buddy)
10. my 2 dogs
11. my 2 cats
12. I have a roof over my head
13. little debt

I honestly had to stop at 13, I could have listed many more. How great is that? It goes back to the mentality of the glass being half full. My cup is so full it is running over. Things are good, life is good, we are all healthy and here. For that I am very thankful.

Enjoy your holiday next week.

  1. Good list! I'm grateful for many of these things too! :)

  2. OH lord! I forgot next Thursday was Thanksgiving already - I'd better get my darn bird out of the freezer in the next few days or I'll be having Turkey popsicles!

    I posted 13 reasons why I started to paint the old fashioned way again. For the past few years all my creativity has been in pixels and vectors and done with a Wacom tablet and a graphics program.

  3. It is great to see people getting in the thankful mode before the official day :) Great list. Happy TT!

  4. A grateful heart is bonus blessing. I believe an official Thanksgiving Day boosts national morale.

  5. I'm all for lazy days....guess that's why I retired early.

    My 13 is notations of a special holiday long will it take you to figure out what song it is? You'll need to scroll down a bit below my Thursday Thunks to find my 13 --they are posted if you'd like to stop by for a visit today....HERE

    Have a great Thursday.

  6. great list! I would have had a hard time stopping at 13 too... so much to be grateful for!

    Swing by today if you get the chance. I host a blog carnival each Thursday about JOY -- I bet you have a lot of that!

  7. That's something we should all do on a regular basis. Great list. Happy T13 and Happy Turkey day next week.

  8. Why do I keep forgetting next week is Thanksgiving? I'm thankful for the many Thanksgivings I had with my family. Though they are gone I always spend the day in celebration of the times I had with them.

    Thanks for stopping by my post, 13 reasons why I started to paint the old fashioned way again!
