ThankFUL Friday

Happy Black Friday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a good day of bargain hunting for Black Friday. I think often the great thing about Thanksgiving, what we're thankful for, seems to be forgotten on Black Friday. We're so concerned with what wonderful things we want or need that we stop focusing on the great things we actually have. So in the spirit of both Woohoo Wednesday, I'd like to make today ThankFUL Friday.

While we're all still full of good holiday food, let's recap what we're full of thanks for in our lives.

I am thankful for:
--My family for how much they love and care for me, and support me in everything I do
--Sookie and Kiki for being the greatest dog and cat a girl could ever ask for
--My friends for always sticking by my side and cheering me up when I'm down
--My school for providing me with an excellent education and giving me something to keep me busy, even though it may be a little too busy at times.
--My job for despite little pay it, it is the best job I could have at the moment
--My health
--Our financial stability, so unlike many others, we can fully participate this holiday season.
--My writing and characters for literally keeping me sane.
--Winter break--you're almost here, just two weeks more.

What are all of you ThankFUL for this lovely Black Friday? I'd also love to hear how your thanksgiving went. Don't forget to participate in this weekend's blog hop! The answers to the hop's questions are posted below their icon links. Til Monday! ;-)

What is your favorite book cover?

For sheer artistic sake, I love the cover of Obsidian Butterfly by Laurel K. Hamilton. However, the cover of the first Harry Potter book will always have a special place in my heart since it is such a magical novel.

  7. cnadeau1989--Thanks for stopping by! Welcome! I've seen the cover of that book and it reminds me of a particular artist's work, but I can't remember the artist's name at the moment lol. Fallen is on my TBR list, but unfortunately it's on the bottom of the list right now. Working it's way up though =)

    Music4Betty--Thanks for stopping by again! Yes, the HP book covers are awesome.

  8. I only discovered what Black Friday was today- I thought something awful had happened. Now I know it sounds kinda similar to Boxing Day sales in Australia!

  9. samstillreading--Lol. Nope, nothing bad happens on Black Friday, except people being grouchy from waking up so early and wrestling over extremely cheap electronics haha. You're from Australia? Wow! I have international followers. How cool.

  10. What a wonderful list. I don't shop on Friday because it spoils the special feeling I get from Thanksgiving and I like to make it last all weekend.
