I'm so thankful for my many blessings.  This month of thanksgiving has just given me cause to pause on all that I have to be thankful for in so many ways.  So it only seems nature that as we head into the month of December my thoughts of thanksgiving would turn to my endless blessings.  And for that reason I will be writing in the month of December about blessings

Please join me for 31 Blessed Days.  Add my widget to your blog, and pass the blessings along.

Children and more


So so thankful for my children.  As I’ve written day to day with so much to be thankful for and now the month is on its last leg I couldn’t let it out the door without shouting out my thanks for my children and the outstanding dils and sils they have given me.  And the added bonus is the grans!  Oh my do I ever love them.

From my toes to my nose
Love you all!

So today is the reason for this season of giving thanks.  I'm thankful that this one single holiday has the ability to give so much and asks nothing in return.  I love it because there is no gift giving just simply a day to totally devote to being thankful.  I have so so much to be thankful for.  My cup runneth over.  My list is without end. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I’m thankful for birthdays.  Many are not a big fan of the birthday and I will admit there have been a few I would rather not have participated in; although I heard 50 is the new 30.  Seriously, who wants to be 50; wahoo the middle number.  Who can get excited over that, well maybe someone who is looking at 60 or 70…..ah forget that road let’s back up to just being thankful for birthdays.  After all if you don’t have one you must be somewhere else; and for the moment I would rather be right where I am thank you very much.  So happy birthday to all you birthday lovers and a big Birthday Shout Out to D2…………….the best is yet to come!

I'm thankful for differences.  I strive to embrace the differences I see in others.  (Strive being the operative word) Someone once told me "being different doesn't make us wrong, it just makes us different."  It is simple really, differences and I appreciate that!

I'm thankful that this month I have devoted myself to just being thankful.  This has been a great experience and in some cases stopped me from writing something I just might regret later.  Being in the thankful state has helped me to clear my mind of things that I don't want in my mind.  Simply put it helps me clear the mechanism. (Of course having some listening ears has helped too.....you know who you are!)

(Thankful 2 Be Thankful)

The Moon


Today my thankful nod goes to the moon and today is the perfect day to be thankful for the moon because tonight we will enjoy a full moon in all its brightness.  When I look at the moon I know that what I see anyone of my family can see too.  When I see the moon the moon see me and you and you! 
Love the moon!

I'm thankful for the Fall and all its colorful goodness.  You see I'm not a big fan of the cold, dark days of Winter. But Fall helps me out by gently leading me into Winter.  Time. To. Bundle. Up!

Today I'm thankful for sleep.  I have trouble with early to bed and early to rise. My days are usually late to bed and way to early to rise.  Somedays sleep is just so hard to come by........but when I get plenty I'm so grateful.

I am thankful for HomeHome is where my heart is.  My heart takes me many places and each time it is so hard to leave but coming home ............ well coming home strengthens my heart and gives me cause to pause while I count my blessings for the wonderful family I have both near and far. So thankful, so blessed. Home.

I am thankful for the opportunity I have each day to try and do my best.  I love that each day I'm given the opportunity to try and do it just a little better than the day before.
"Do Your Best!"

I'm thankful for Sunday. I'm thankful that no matter where I am in the world (that's the whole world) I can attend church with people who believe just like I do and do the same things I do each Sunday; who are all just friends I haven't yet met.  This is a blessing for which I'm eternally grateful.

Today and every day I'm thankful for laughter.  I can't live without it.  I'm thankful for Mr. Man who makes me laugh everyday.  Laughter is my best medicine.  It makes hard things easy.  It makes tough things soft.  Laughter is what makes my world go around.

Fresh Air


I'm thankful for fresh air.  Where we live the air is fresh and for the most part clean......where we work sometimes not so much. Thus giving me the opportunity to appreicate not only where I live but the difference.  It is a simple thing but I am thankful for it nonetheless.

Monday, November 8, 2010



Yup Monday, I'm thankful for Monday. I love the beginning we get each week with Monday.  I love Monday because it follows Sunday, the day of rest.  Thanks Monday, I know not everyone loves you or appreciates you for what you have to offer.  Who you are is not lost on me, thanks Monday!

  • Today I'm thankful for change.
  • I have not always been a lover of change but with age I guess I'm learning to embrace it. 
  • I find sometimes change can put a new lease on life. 
  • I've learned change many times is my teacher. 
  • I know change has strengthened my heart.

A Cup


Yes, a cup is what I'm thankful for.  It is a cup that is always half full and never half empty!  But mostly it's a cup that runneth over.  I'm just blessed that way!

30 for Thanks

Having just completed 31 for 21 in the month of October, a friend suggested that November can be what we are thankful for.  Bravo I say.  So although I'm a wee bit behind I don't want to forego the idea.  So today I'll play a little catchup.  Won't you join me for "30 for Thanks?"  Each day blog about what you are thankful/grateful for.  I'll bet it makes for a very thoughtful month.

Day #1: Great Friends. Simply put they are the best!

Day #2: Today I'm thankful for the Rain. We've had a bit of rain. It clears the air and cleans the roads and settles the fall dust.  But I love what it does to the barren landscape............turns it green.  Today I noticed it for the first time; the faint hint of green on the hillside.  From this point on we will enjoy the beautiful green rolling hills until at least early May.  Love it!

Day #3: Computers/Technology I'm thankful that at almost any given moment I can talk to my family.  Although miles separate us; computers begin us together.

Double Duty

I love watching baseball with Mr. Man and have been happily doing a lot of it lately.  However, I can't just sit and watch, I have to be doing something besides the occasional screaming in excitement or otherwise at the game.  So what do I do............blog surf and text (a lot of texting going one).  In the process I find good stuff like this!  Free is always good. Not sure how long it will last but it is worth checking out!
