It is always good to take some time each year to remember all of the things we are thankful for. This year my list includes:
My husband. He’s always first on the list because he’s pretty awesome and makes life better always.
Stormy and Lana — my 2 furbabies that always know when I need a cuddle.
My family — we aren’t perfect, and not always as connected as we should be, but family is family — always.
Long phone calls with my sister.
The News Team, near and far — you know who you are.
Family Game Nights.
My mom making coffee every morning.
Kindle Unlimited, to make all those books a bit more affordable!
RSVP Pens, because they are the best.
Thursday night Karaoke.
Facebook Messenger group chats.
GIFs in Facebook Messenger group chats.
Snapchat filters, because everyone looks cuter with antlers or cat ears.
New friends, old friends and friends that are like family.
A comfy couch and fluffy blankets.
Having yet to put on a winter jacket.
The fact that it hasn’t snowed.
Coffee. I can live with less, but still enjoy it more than most things.
Gnocchi and homemade sauce.
Tuesdays, because it is new book release day.
Funny cat videos.
When your eyebrow game is strong.
When a recipe turns out exactly like it is supposed to.
Unexpectedly amazing nights out — the kind where you planned to go home and watch TV and suddenly find yourself having the time of your life with your friends.
Books on pre-order. I love a morning new book surprise.
Saturday trips to Target.
Good hair days.
Ipsy Glam Bags.
That Alexa is always ready to tell me the weather or play music.
My dutch oven.
Coffee. Please don’t underestimate how much a enjoy it.
The roof over my head.
The food in my fridge.
Comfy beds and feather pillows.
The warm clothes in my closet (ok, in the laundry basket on the floor).
Living in a small community that cares about each other.
A job that let’s me write as silly or as serious as I’d like.
The brave men and women, past and present, for defending our freedom. Without their hard work and sacrifice, very little of this list would be possible.
One last thing. Webb Weekly’s success is dependent on small businesses. On that note, don’t forget that Saturday is Small Business Saturday. Please go out and patronize your local businesses. Successful local business leads to successful communities. Everyone wins when you support local business!
