3 Things That Didn't Make My "30 Days of Thanksgiving" List



This month I'm doing the "30 Days of Thanksgiving" on Facebook ~ giving thanks for something each day.

There are so many things I'm thankful for that are not going to make that list. It's hard to limit to 30! 

You can't have too much thanks. I thought I'd feature a few things today that won't make the list of 30 but I'm am crazy about them nonetheless, so here goes... 

1) I'm thankful for my Keurig 

Nope, the novelty hasn't worn off. Even after a year! Some people said it would, but it didn't. I'm still in mad love with this machine every morning. Simply smitten. My favorites are Caribou and Newman's Own Extra Bold. The Keurig is one of those things that now that I've had one, I don't know how I'd not have one again. Sort of like a microwave. But better.  

2) I'm thankful for my Kindle.

I love the fact that we can now read books instantly that we hear about and have interest in. When I talk to people and they mention a book they love, I get the sample that day and if it piques my interest, I can begin reading that day. How cool is that? I also love that I can read a Kindle book on my laptop. By the way, did you know that I am the author of a book you can read on Kindle or any mobile device?

3) I am thankful for the right to vote. 

I never, ever take it lightly. A lot of people fought hard, even bled and died so I could vote. The fact that some people are so apathetic about voting puzzles me.

Giving thanks is awesome.

Try it if you haven't already!

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. And no,it's not just because it's the holiday that seems to center more than any other on food. (Although I love food.) It's the opportunity to count my blessings, and the sights and sounds. I love anything "fallish". Yes, I'm aware that's not a word.
