Now, you may have noticed that the global economy isn’t exactly doing well. There’s war. Starvation. All sorts of bad, scary things going on.
So–just for today–how about sharing 7 things that you’re thankful for?
This can be about books, sure–authors you appreciate, books you love, an ode to your public library–but also, how about other things, too? Because in times like these, with bills piling up and disaster seemingly lurking around every corner, it’s more important than ever to stop and take stock of the things we’re grateful for. Family. Friends. Good health (I hope). Coffee and tea. Turkey. Sunshine. Wagging tails. Curling up with a good book.
So, how about it? Spread a little positive thinking and tell the world what there is to be thankful for.
I am grateful for -
- my husband's love, wit, intelligence, and tolerance of his odd wife
- all of my friends, wherever they are and however I met them
- Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, Vita Sackville-West, Barbara Pym, Joan Didion, Joyce Carol Oates, Elizabeth Gaskell, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Sara Teasdale, Lousia May Alcott, and all of the women whose writing has inspired, comforted, and taught me
- knitting and tea and letters and fountain pens and toy rabbits (and real, hopping rabbits)
- the First Amendment
- the beauty and inspiration of the eternal moon
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
