Thankfulness....

Things and People that I am Thankful for.......

....a hubby who has loved me and accepted me..as I am...for more than 40 years....

.....my kids...stressful, though they may be, I blame them for every single grey hair on my head,..life would most certainly be very boring without them....

.....my grandbabies.....oh they bring a smile to my face and an exhaustion to my body...but I can't wait for more......(as long as the mommies and daddies are married, that is...enough stress already!)........

.....my mom and dad, and my mother-in-law....even though times have been rough lately, I'm so grateful that they're still with us......

...good friends, who are ready to give you a hug and a prayer...such encouragement....

....clean sheets....I love getting into clean sheets after a long, tiring day.....

....spending time with my hubby.....bliss....

....my quilting group friends, my book club friends and my lunch friends....what joy to spend time together, sharing....

....the strength God gives me every day to get up each morning....

.....plans...I love having plans that I can 'hang my hat on'...something to look forward to when life gets crazy............

....a nice cup of tea......so relaxing...

....a two armed hug.....is there anything better.....

...the home that we have...messy as it is...small in some places....but thankful for......

.....a spring day...everything veeeeerrrrrrry quiet, except for the birds....singing away....or in the early evening when they are settling down for the night......

.....the strength and ability to still quilt,...to read a good book....how could life be better?.....

.....for the love that God shows me everyday, in all these people and things......for life itself.....and the promise of the life hereafter.....

....I'll probably think of many more...but for now this is my short list...maybe I'll add to it as time goes on......

Being thankful...kinda puts the day in a better perspective, don't ya think?

What a great list! I made an attitude adjustment this morning and everything seems much happier too.
