ten things tuesday

Linking up with Ten On Tuesday this week.

This week's topic is 10 Things You Are Thankful For.

1) I am thankful for my health.

2) I am thankful for my family--near and far, and our ability to connect regularly via social media and technology.

3) I am thankful for my friends who accept me for who I am.

4) I am thankful for my cozy, cluttered apartment. It is home. It is my safe haven.

5) I am thankful that I live in a region of the country that allows me to experience nature daily. Even though I sometimes whine about being at the end of the earth.

6) I am thankful for my profession. Although teachers aren't always treated as professionals. But I have the ability to grow with my students. I say I learn more from them than they do from me.

7) I am thankful for opportunities to connect to the community--through volunteer opportunities as well as social opportunities.

8) I am thankful for my appreciation of the small things in life. Living in the moment and enjoying the present help me appreciate little blessings.

9) I am thankful for being able to afford frivolous things--like daily coffee at Dunkin' Donuts and manicures.

10) I am thankful for my very blessed life.

Lovely, thoughtful list. (I too live at the end of the earth -- n.w. WI -- and although I whine about it sometimes, I also love that I can see and appreciate nature daily.)
