Thankful For Thursday – The Simple Stuff

Posted Mar 17 2011, 11:58 am in , ,

Oasis for YA knows that the surest way to get good things in life is to be thankful for what you have.  So why not encourage a group thankful-fest once a week in which we all send out good energy and hope to get some back in return? Plus, participating in Thankful Thursday is a great way to connect with other writers.

Here are the rules:
1.  Do your own blog post on what you’re thankful for today.  It doesn’t have to be book or publishing related (but it can be!).
2.  Be sure to grab our badge and include it in your post.
3.  Post a link to your blog in the comments here so that others can find you.
4.  Go forth and share your gratitude!  (And when friending new blogs, be sure to let them know you found them because of their participation in the meme.)

There are so many simple things I’ve got to be thankful for.  Everything from comfy shoes, to chocolate milk.  Today though, these are the ones that stick out in my mind.

Angry Birds. When I’m feeling the need to break something, the Birds never disappoint.  Complete with an awesome battle cry, the Birds smash through glass, wood, and rock, taking out those evil green pigs.  What’s not to love?

Coffee. I started drinking coffee when I was 7.  Yes.  Seriously.  7.  Granted it was only tiny sips at the time, given to me by an old Italian aunt in Brooklyn.  I now believe it long ago replaced the blood in my veins.   Without it, I’d probably shrivel up.

Paper and pens. Because I’m probably one of the last humans on earth that still use these things to keep myself organized.

Fuzzy socks. Warm.  Fluffy.  Funky.  Nuff said.

Turkey Melts. The most awesomest food in the universe!  Turkey.  Gooey cheese.  Tomato and bacon.  Perfection.

What about you?  What are your simple happies?
