Give Thanks

1. List three (little) things you wouldn't want to live without:
  • contact lenses
  • books
  • coffee
2. Name something you had to do without recently: a car
3. What are you most thankful for that you consider a luxury? my "new" car
4. Name an item you use the most throughout your day: a computer
5. What would life be like without the item listed in #4? It would be a completely different lifestyle. I wouldn't be able to work as a Sonlight advisor. Research and archiving for my writing would be much harder.
6. Name something that you use in the kitchen that you are thankful for: the microwave
7. What is (one of ) the best earthly gift(s) you ever received? my engagement watch, for what it symbolized
8. Name a completely random thing you are thankful for: our sweet dog, Cookie
9. How often do you think about the item listed in #8? All the time because she's usually in the room with me, just waiting to be noticed.
10. Name something you recently acquired, that you have wanted for a long time: a Toyota RAV4
11. Would you rather have #4, or #7? Well, #7 no longer works, so it has been retired to my jewelry box, but the resulting marriage is a treasure worth more than any material item.
12. Name one of your favorite things: I have an awfully hard time picking favorites, but I do love the quilt my mother made for my bed.
13. Look around the room you are in, and name three things you enjoy in it:
  • a wall full of books
  • family pictures
  • Cookie!
14. List three tools you use in your daily work that you are thankful for:
  • the computer
  • the scanner/copier
  • my phone
15. Name something that you sometimes wish you didn't have in your life, but that you would miss dreadfully if it were taken away: our travel-trailer
16. Post a picture (or ten) of something you are thankful for!

Isn't it interesting how much we use computers? It seems to me everyone has it in their lists somewhere...
And engagement watch sounds lovely.

I see several materialistic items listed, some listed repeatedly, but once again Karla, I don't see my name! We've been through this! Where is my name, and where are your priorities, Girl!? "My friend Farrah," "Farrah's friendship," "The privilege of having Farrah once/week in my home" -- these are what I should see for some of those answers! In fact, I'm sure Kelly and Hana would agree that I should be on their lists as well. And your parents would agree too, no doubt.

Wait! Did I see a happy birthday in the comments??! All right, X all that out. What kind of friend doesn't even know your birthday?! Keep the computer and car in there. And contact lenses. I am not worthy!

Was it really your b-day two days ago? Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy belated birthday to Karla . . . Happy birthday to you! . . . and many more!

Wait! Your parents left that on the 24th! That was . . . yesterday! Was your birthday on black friday? Did you shop on your birthday?! Turkey left-overs on my birthday wouldn't be a bad way to go. Mmmmmmm! TURKEY! I'm thankful right now for turkey and Karla's birthday!
