Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Things I Am Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme brought to you at The Broke and the Bookish!! Each week we will be releasing a top ten book related list for you all to enjoy!
I decided to do this Top Ten not only with books, but my whole life as well!

Top Ten Things I Am Thankful For


1. My Family
My family is my everything. Without them I wouldn't be the person I am today. I love them very much and don't know what I would do if I didn't have them in my life. I'm close with my entire family and am very thankful for that. My Mommy is not only my mother, but she is my best friend. I love her very very very much and I wouldn't be able to go on anymore if I didn't have her in my life.

2. My Boyfriend/Soulmate
My boyfriend was also my childhood best friend, we split apart due to life getting in the way, but a couple years ago we were able to meet back up. We fell in love and have been together ever since. I love that he knows about my whole life and knows about me now. I can go to him for anything and I know I will always be able to. I have spent years searching for the right guy, but I found out that he was in front of me the whole time.

3. My puppy
I got my Chihuahua, Moose, back in 2007 and it is the best decision I have ever made. No matter the day I have, I can come home and know he will always be happy to see me. I get such a warmth in heart when he is around and I am so glad to have him in my life.

4. My Job
I have two jobs. I have a job in a tackle store that I have some of the best friendships with my coworkers there. I had to have my hours dropped due to a slow season, so I ended up going and getting a full time job during the week. I am also a teacher to 2 year old little kiddos. I love it there, even on the stressful days. I love that I now have a steady income and have coworkers there that I am getting close to as well :) Without my jobs, I wouldn't be able to get the items I have been able to purchase recently.

5. My Book Blog
I had my blog years ago, under a different name, but due to personal reasons, I had to delete the blog. I spent years hating I had to delete it and when I finally sorted out my personal priorities, I am back to blogging. I had to start completely over, but I have loved every minute of it. I check my blog as well as all the ones I am following daily and love keeping up with the book community.

6. My Blogger Friendships
I don't have many friends in my real life. I'm very anti-social, so I don't spend much time hanging out with anyone. Mostly because there just isn't many here that I can actually get along with. That is where my blog comes into play. I was able to find a couple friends on here that are very special to me and I wish they all lived closer. I would like to do a shout out here for Kristalyn, Nikki, and Amanda. I love all 3 of you very much!

7. My Friends
I have 2 friends in my life that have been around for a while. One I have had in my life since I graduated high school and his name is Aaron. He has moved away and just this week moved back home and I am so glad for that. But no matter where each of us move, we have always been there for each other for anything. I also have a coworker named Randy that has also been a shoulder to cry on and also someone that just makes me laugh. I love that I have people like that in my life that are able to put up with my anti-social, pain in the butt ways!

8. My Daddy
I lost my Daddy to the Gulf War in 1991. I still think of him everyday and use him to help guide me through life. I know he might not be here physically but I know he will always be here with me emotionally. I look just like him and do so many of the things that he loved when he was alive. If I have had a hard day or have a hard decision I always think about the advice he would tell me and I try to follow it the best I can. I love you, Daddy!

9. All my Possessions
I have so many things in my life that I am thankful for. I could live without them, but I am glad I don't have to. Some things include my TV, my playstation, my car, my books, my movies, my clothes, my shoes, etc.

10. Myself
Finally I am just thankful for myself. I used to hate who I was and wanted to be accepted. Then I finally figured out that I am unique and meant to be my own person. So now I embrace it and don't let anyone tell me there is anything wrong with me. I have learned to love myself and I am thankful for the person I have become.
