Writer's Workshop: Thankful

Prompt number 2: Write a list of 6 things you are thankful for.

  1. My family.  I have three wonderful guys in my life.  My Hubby, Nick, who puts up with my craziness and loves me anyway.  Turbo, my teenager, who has not yet hit the stage of not wanting to be seen in public with his mother.  He goes grocery shopping with me and we have a fun time with it. Bruiser, 8, a quirky, smart, stubborn kid who enjoys mock sword fighting, being outdoors and YouTube. They make my life so infinitely better.
  2. My friends.  I have three main friends who make sure I don't become so introverted I never leave the house. I adore these ladies and am so thankful I have them as friends.
  3. Our home, be it in Laramie or in Casper.  I am happy we found a home that we all like in our new town and that we were able to keep our old home so we still have a place to stay when we come see family and friends.
  4. Traditions, both old and new.  Over the last 4 years, we have developed some new Thanksgiving traditions.  It's almost a week long thing now.  It starts the Sunday before with a massive cinnamon roll bake and then we plan the shopping for the Wednesday evening gathering.  Dinner is light snacks, meats, cheese crackers, veggies, dip and such and the adults gather and play Cards Against Humanity.  Much fun and laughter is had.  Two turkeys are cooked up the next day along with all the fixings and the feast is on.  Friday morning the ladies head off the tackle the sales while the guys ride herd on kids and digest. All in all it is a great time with family and friends that I treasure and am so thankful to be a part of.
  5. Thankful for my sound machine. It's a nifty little machine that plays the sound of rain and that helps me sleep a bit better.
  6. My books.  I love escaping into a good book and I have several that I love to read, both on my Kindle and on my shelves.  Moving the ones on my shelves will be a chore, but I love having them.
So what are you thankful for?


  1. I have a bunch of recordings of rain that I play on my iPod all night, every night. I have a little speaker that delivers sound good enough for how I use it. It helps me deal with the tinnitus.

    Re your Thnksgiving, you had me at cinnamon rolls...

  2. I second ALL of that except for the sound machine...although I'm thankful for the one that keeps babies asleep in my house. :) Books are my happy place!
