Top Ten Tuesday: Things I’m Grateful For

Top Ten Tuesday is an original meme created by The Broke and the Bookish for list addicts. The only catch (and it’s a biggie) is that you are supposed to stick to ten things. This week’s list is…

Top Ten Things I am Grateful For

Today’s post is dedicated to all Americans who are celebrating Thanksgiving. I’m Australian so my knowledge of the holiday is second-hand. I have watched episodes featuring it on tv shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Friends and How I Met Your Mother so I probably have a (slightly) different take on the holiday from someone who lives it. I decided to write a general one rather than something specific to books. Here’s my list:

1. Family
Some of my family might be a tad eccentric but I’m thankful I have every one them

2. Great friends
Friends will sympathise with you if you are having a bad day but great friends will help you hide the bodies

3. Job
Not everyone gets to work in a job they love but I am fortunate enough to do so. My job is challenging but rewarding

4. Independent bookstores
Yay for the little guys!

5. Books (and the people who write them)
I spend literally hundreds of hours reading per year and finding gems of books makes me cheer

6. Chocolate
‘Nuff said

7. My computer & internet
I get withdrawal symptoms if I am not at my computer for a significant amount of time per day

8. My good health
I’ve had dodgy health on and off over the years but this is the first year I have been completely healthy

9. My cats
They might steal my socks, hog the heater when it is cold and only eat expensive cat food but I honestly don’t think I’d have it any other way

10. First world problems
My life isn’t perfect but when you put it into perspective, most of my issues are first world problems – I don’t live in a war torn country, I have access to fresh water and food, I have a roof over my head and I have access to education and health facilities.

    • I lived by myself for 5 years before I got my two and I honestly don’t know how I survived without them. They worm their way into your heart before you realise and you’re smitten.

    Great list. I’ll always be there to help you hide the bodies 🙂 and dispose of the murder weapon too, of course!
