What I am Thankful For

As Thanksgiving approaches I find myself thinking about the many things I am thankful for.

A few years ago I had a gratitude journal (Oprah idea) and would write 5 things a day I am grateful for. Sometimes it would be as simple as being grateful for a really great cup of coffee and other times it was being thankful for being above ground. Whatever it was, I love reading where I was then. I need to get back to basics; for my sanity! I think the gratitude journal would be a wonderful way of dealing some of the stress I feel on a daily basis as of late. So here it goes...today I am grateful for:

  • My son giving me a million unsolicited, very loud kisses today
  • My daughter finding my stupid, weird, spastic dance entertaining as I struggled to keep her happy while I made dinner.
  • My husband coming home safely; the weather was hideous tonight.
  • The pumpkin pie bars I made tonight for the first time coming out beautiful for my Mom and Tot brunch tomorrow.
  • My dear friend Teresa for all she has done for me lately. You are a true friend with a big heart and I love you!


  1. It's always good to step back and think about all the good we have in our lives. It helps to put it all in perspective!!!

    Much love and many wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. BTW - I'd LOVE to get a peek at that spastic dance the next time we get together ;)

  3. Bek, It's not as good as your Elaine dance I must say!
