Giving Thanks (because you don’t just have to do it on Thanksgiving)

Posted on: November 23rd, 2012 by Hannah Beasley 6 Comments

I’m one of those people who refuse to listen to Christmas music, don’t put Christmas decorations up, or think about snow and winter until after Thanksgiving. I like to enjoy fall in all its glory for as long as possible – I think it’s my favorite season. And I love Thanksgiving, too. We do have much to be thankful for, and to sit down and just think of all those things is so good. So this is my list, from A to Z, of the things I’m thankful for this year.

Art. It’s beautiful. // Best Friends. They are priceless and mean so much to me. // Cold Days. I love the chill in the wind and that spark that says it’s winter. // Design. It’s what I do and what I love. // Everything Coffee. ‘Nuff said. // Family. Siblings, parents, and grandparent – they are all so special. // Good Times with friends and family. // Happiness. In the season and year round. // Icicles. Winter’s the best. // Jesus. He is the only reason for life, and the only giver of it. // Kitchens that are warm and cozy. // Love. What else do we have? // Music. I can’t live without it. // NaNoWriMo. It has motivated me and pushed me into my writing, just like I’ve needed. // Open Hands, ready for whatever the future may hold. // Poems. They express such beauty. // Quality. In everything – from design to work to life. // Rain. I love it. // Starbucks. No explanation needed, right? // Tea. It’s not coffee, but it’s so comforting on a rainy day. // Umbrellas in the Rain. So romantic. // Valleys and Mountains. Nature is amazing. // Writing. One of the ways I can express myself. // Xenodochial Friends. (yes I had to look that one up) Friends who love to be hospitable. // Years. The chance to live. // Zigzags. They’re just fun.

    I had to look up “Xenodochial” too. ;) What a great meaning behind it!

    Your list is one of the loveliest ones I’ve read so far. Very thoughtful and unique. :)

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I usually don’t start listening to Christmas music until Dec. 1st, but we’ll see. ;)

    Take care!

  3. ooooh. LOVE that diptych, gal. so wonderful and fall-ish. Your thankful list is just wonderful! I’m a bigger tea drinker than coffee, honestly, but I love them both. and even though I’m hopelessly behind, I’ve absolutely adored nano this year as well (I did it and won in 2009 and loved it then too — don’t think I’ll be winning this year though. hee hee…:) ) thanks for sharing and linking up!

    have a fabulous weekend!

    Thanks girls! Yeah Nela – same here, I usually wait till December 1st. haha but my family has been listening to Christmas music like crazy, so I had to give in. ;) I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving too!

    Yeah, tea and coffee just can’t be beat, can they Hannah? ;) Aww, sorry you’re behind in NaNo! I am too…but I’m hoping for a 20k weekend and a win. =D

    Hey, thanks for letting us link up! That was a great idea. You have a great weekend too!

    I love zig zags too! Working on that cowl pretty girl.

    It looks awesome. Met my deadline for the socks so I can devote more time to it.

    Naughty dog is still on probation and not allowed near me while I work.


    Many blessings!
