Top Ten Tuesday: For these gifts I thank the universe

Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by  The Broke and the Bookish) is essentially an American meme one and so the theme this week is Thanksgiving.

Books I’m thankful for? I’m thankful for all books, even the badly written ones.

What I’m thankful for …

The roof over my head.

Never having to go hungry.

My family.

My friends.

My partner, Don.

My cat.

My book collection, which includes trashy, badly written novels.

The Intersectional Solidarity and Finishing School Facebook groups I belong to.

Living in a relatively peaceful country.

Never having had to deal with natural disasters.

And lots more.

It’s good to stop and think about all the things that aren’t wrong with my life. The problem is I tend to get caught up with daily worries and stress, and just focus on my aches and pains and difficulties. Things are fine. All will be well.
