30 Days of Thankfulness - Days 21 & 22

Day 21
I am thankful for books!
I remember when I was in elementary school, we had to participate in Book-It.
(Remember that? With the buttons, star stickers, personal pan pizza's on Friday?)
It was so painful for me!! I loved the stickers and pizza, don't get me wrong!!
I remember having to clock the amount of time that I had spent reading, and it just wasn't enjoyable for me... I had no interest in it. Period.
But now, OHHHH my goodness!!!!
If I can sit down with a good book, and a peaceful place to read it, I can go for hours and hours...
Perhaps I will start an adult Book-It club!? HA! I can taste that personal pan pizza now!
Day 22
I am thankful for the telephone!
This may sound a little strange.. I know.. but right now, with my husband working out of town, {weekly!} it is the only way I get to hear his (oh so manly) voice.
We talked this morning, over breakfast (Captain Crunch for him. Coffee for me.) and it was so comforting to know that he is just a phone call away!
Dear technology,
i heart you.
Maggie, your fellow Turkey.
