Gratitude List

Day 5: I'm grateful for who ever invented Nacho Cheese Dip and chips today. it makes a great lunch!
Day 6: I'm grateful that I live in a country where I have the right to vote, to make my voice heard. Where I can determine the future by the choices I make in a little booth today. I'm privileged to be a part of the process. So grateful for...
the Constitution of the USA and in awe of the founding fathers who realized the importance of gauranteeing those freedoms for my generation. They were truly inspired by the Lord. God Bless America!!!
Day 9: I'm grateful for light and heat when so many are still without power on the east coast. I'm thankful for the moisture that has come and gives me the excuse to hibernate in the house without feeling guilty.

Day 10: I'm thankful for the young men who shoveled my driveway for me so I could get out to the grocery store today. I tried last night to clear some of it away and slipped and fell. I'm also very thankful to whomever invented heating pads BenGay

Thankful Sunday

I'm so very grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace it brings to me in this chaotic world. Sometimes I think that I can never get quiet. Then I pray and the quiet comes. Then as the songs say "It is well with my soul" and "Sweet is the peace the Gospel brings." There is something so nice about Sundays. I'm so glad the Lord gave us this day to rest.

Attitude of Gratitude

Thankfulness. I read the other day that Oprah has kept a Gratitude journal for 22 years. My friend Janalee adds what she is thankful for after every one of her blog posts. So for this month I plan on posting everyday something I'm grateful for.

A few minutes ago I just got back from a walk round the block with Crickett. It's the first time she's been on a leash ever. She's is so funny. Very scared and clingy. Not adventurous like Lucy was at all. The Bancroft girls were out on their tramp and she wanted to go and play with them rather than explore. We'll keep working on it.

So today I'm thankful for the nice calm weather when let me get out and about.
I'm also thankful for candy. I have a lot left. Not so many Trick or Treaters came by before I left.
