These are a Few of My Favorite Things…

Taking a hint from Buckwheatsrisk, I decided that a “Thankful” list combined with a “Favorite” Things list might be good for me and amusing for you.  Those are two pretty powerful ideas.  So, I will give you a current list of my favs and thanks and call it my:

ThankFav list

1)  My 2 children (2 of the very best in the world)

2)  Being able to watch a lot of movies

3)  Having a decently successful blog

4)  Enough money to live on and still have some fun

5)  A wonderful group of friends (you all are included)

6)  Living through a near-fatal stroke (and the wondrous things since then)

7)  Being intelligent and able to think

8)  Having sold 4 short stories and to soon be a published author

9)  God

10)  Memories (the good ones, especially, but even the lesser ones are good to have)

11)  A good family

12)  My cat (don’t tell her!)

Okay, that was short / sweet.  I just realized that I have been kinda sliding by in life without really concentrating on what I have to be so thankful for.  The list above is not in order, but all of them are important to me.

What are your favorite things?  What things are you truly thankful for?

    I love your gratitude list, Scott. Promise not to tell the cat 😉

      Thank you. I was concerned as she seems to be wanting to rule the roost more today. 🙂

      You are welcome. I hope all is going well at your home. Josh is doing well? And that beautiful daughter of yours?

    Lovely list. I know what you mean about the cat. I have 2, and if they knew how much I really love them they would take over the house completely.

    Probably my most favorite thing these days is my husband (who I’m also grateful for), followed by the opportunity to play with words/turn a phrase (again, both love and thank).
    I think you started something very good here!

    Great reminder Scott! Congratulations on the short stories, that’s very cool! It’s been a while since I’ve been here, glad you’re still blogging. Some of the things I am grateful for are my:

    Daughter (and granddaughter)
    Wacky family
    Twisted humor
    Overall good health
    A few good friends
    Birds in my garden
    Financial security
    Wheelchair and van
    Fast Internet connections (and where they transport me)
    New art supplies
    Wonderful housekeeper
    Netflix (lol)
    Technology and the ability to use it
    and all the little miracles that remind me my job is not yet done. 🙂
