Sunday Reflections: What Are You Thankful For?

This week’s assignment from the League: Gee, thanks.

We took a week off for a sanity break on my part, but now it’s time to get back to business! This week’s assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers
Next week, we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this year?
REMEMBER!: The League is always open to new members! Got a blog? Write a post in response to the weekly challenge, and you’ll be included. It’s that easy!
This exact same topic was gonna be my next Sunday Reflection, so why not combine the two?You know I love a good list, so here goes!
10. TOYS!

Can you imagine a world without toys? It would be a dark world indeed! We'd all just collect things like stamps, spoons, and thimbles and those are fine things to collect, but man, no toys would be BORING! I'd still have my movies, video games, tabletop games, cards, candy, and cereal, but there would be a huge void in my life without good old toys!
As bad as a life without toys would be, a life without music would be a billion times worse! When I'm not actually listening to music it's still playing in my mind. My whole life is set to movie and video game soundtracks. When I'm doing something exciting, like scrubbing out my toilet, you can guarantee video game music will be blasting to make it that much more exciting and enjoyable. Video game music is also a great way to relive my glory days when I don't have time to play the games themselves.

8. Cereal and Candy!

Man, I love cereal! I honestly think that if it weren't for cereal I may very well have starved to death in my teen years, because that's all I ate! A close second to cereal is candy. Utahns are infamous for their sweet tooths (or is it sweet teeth?) and I'm certainly not exempt from that! I love PEZ dispensers, fancy soda pop and novelty candy tins (though the candy is usually terrible). I'm also a chain gum chewer. My brand is Orbit.
7. Food!

I'm especially thankful for food stuffs around Thanksgiving. Turkey, mashed potatoes n' gravy with peas mixed in, yams, green beans, you name it I love it. What do you eat for Turkey Day?

6. Holidays!

I really really like holidays, especially the big 3, Christmas, Easter, and Halloween. I love the traditions, decorating, partying with family and friends and wondering what the heck eggs and ducks have to do with Easter.
5. America The Beautiful

I am so grateful I live in such a beautiful, free nation! America truly is one nation, under God. It's the new Zion.

4. The League of Extreordinary Bloggers, followers, and Other Wonderful Bloggers!

I am totally overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of this little community. The gifts, prizes, trades, kind words and more make me feel so blessed and welcome. Thank you all so much! I am truly thankful!
3. Friends New and Old
I love all my friends like family,because, after all, we're all children of God and that makes us family. My favorite aspect of collecting is meeting new friends. I could lose every single thing I've collected over the years and it would suck, but it's no big deal as long as I still have my friends.
2. My Beautiful Family

We recently celebrated my 30th birthday and I had a blast! My entire family was able to attend the Halloween themed Birthday party and it was grand. I love my family, they're so good to me, I don't deserve it, but I appreciate them so much.
1. God's Ultimate Gift To Man, The Atonement

Without it I'd be darned to heck for all eternity, we all would! Jesus Christ suffered all that we might be washed clean and be found worthy to return to live with Him. I can never fully repay Him and I will always fall short. But through His grace anything is possible. For this I am eternally grateful!
I'm not the only thankful one this Thanksgiving. Go check out these other thankful bloggers.

  1. Its not often I see both breakfast cereal and Jesus on the same countdown list. At least you've got your priorities together!
