Happy Thanksgiving Eve! There are so many big things in life to be grateful for — family, friends, homes — but there are also little things that help us through our lives. What little thing are you thankful for? Is it something that makes your life easier or something that brings you joy?
Edith: I don’t drink much coffee, but I savor my two cups of dark French roast in the morning. Freshly ground, home dripped, with a splash of whole milk in it. And the travel mug I bring it in upstairs to my office so the brew stays warm until I finish drinking it. Sigh. Bliss. Thankful!
Liz: Edith, you opened the door for me to talk coffee! I love the Haitian blend I’ve been getting for my French press. It makes me want to get up in the morning. And Gilmore Girls. I’m thankful for a new season – what a treat for the holidays!
Barb: I’m thankful for things big and small. For little things, I’m thankful for the skylights a past owner installed in our bedroom. They bring in the light on these dark, dark days.
Jessie: I am thankful for my small appliances. I rely on my slow cooker, my rice steamer and my Kitchen Aid mixer daily to keep my family easily fed. I save so much time with them that I am able to use in other ways that I prefer, like writing books!
Sherry: Google. Yep, that is what I’m thankful for. Google answers so many questions every day. Words I don’t recognize, questionable articles posted on social media, research answers, how far is it from my house to wherever. It’s amazing how much information we have at our fingertips. Okay, and my DVR — a commercial free life is a good one.
Julie: I am grateful for Besame Red Velvet lipstick. It is the shade Agent Carter wears. Honestly, it has superpowers. When I feel a little blue, tired, or depressed I put it on and BAM. I’m back.
Readers: What little things help you through your day, or your life?
