Top 10 Tuesdays - Top 10 Things to Be Thankful For

Time again for Top 10 Tuesdays with Kate, Keebles and myself until someone else joins in. It's kind of fun if you're interested. :)


1. Health

I'm not in the greatest shape, back issues, etc. but I can stitch and I can work and that's more than a lot of people can say. So I'm thankful I can stitch and that I enjoy working. 

2. DD

I never expected to have children and it seemed like for awhile it wasn't going to happen no matter what we did, so she is a wonderful surprise and almost always a joy to be around. 

3. Work

I'm also thankful I have a profession I enjoy and have been somewhat successful in. 

4. Cross Stitch

This had to make the list right? I love stitching, I really, really do. I enjoy it more than most anything else except maybe for reading and I can listen to audio books and stitch so that's kind of like doing 2 of my favourite things at once. So I'm thankful my roommate in first year of undergrad introduced me to stitching.

5. DH

I feel like I would be an entirely different person without DH, and maybe not as good a person. My parents are judgmental and closed-minded and if I hadn't met someone completely unlike that, what would I be like now? 

6. Grandma

This kind of goes with #5. It's possible I could have turned out like my Grandma, and that would have been just fine. She's a wonderful person that always accepted anything we told her or any problems we had and just listened and didn't try and solve them necessarily. She would occasionally offer advice if we wanted it, but just listening was something my parents never seemed to do. 

7. Hockey

Although I have issues with my parents, they did support me in hockey and take me to practices and tournaments at ungodly hours, so I am thankful they helped me with that. I also love playing hockey and when I play I can forget about everything else in the world except that moment when I'm playing. 

8. Good Friends

I don't get together a lot with friends, but it's never weird when we do, we just pick up from where we left off. We're somewhat separated now with distance, but there's always Facebook. 

9. Siblings

I think I have pretty decent siblings overall and we get along well even though we're separated by fairly large distances most of the time. 

10. Sight

Working in the eye business I have never taken my eyes or vision for granted. You only get the one set and disease can set in at any time. 

I hope you enjoyed the list and don't forget to check Kate's and Keeb's lists! The links are at the top. 

Happy Stitching,



  1. Great list! I tend to think more me than around me, but maybe because I don't have a lot of great people in my life like you do.
