What I am thankful for............

I have had a moment to think about what I am grateful for and I would like to share them with you. First I am thankful for a loving God who has blessed me with my husband, my children, and my talents. My life has been a wonderful (crazy) journey and each new day is an adventure and at times I don't always realize how much I have, but at this Thanksgiving time it has given me the time to reflect on what is truly important and how being thankful for what I have changes my life for the better. So, here's a small list of some things I am thankful for, the four most important things already mentioned.

*Milk - I love it and I couldn't live without it!
*Judge Judy - she makes me laugh, can't help it.
*The toddler diaper sound - the sound the diaper makes when your baby runs ( I love it!)
*Homemade smoothies - it's the only way to sneak spinach in all my kids meals :)
*Running - it helps get rid of anxiety, at least for the duration of the run!
*Fabric - do I have to explain why?
*Discovery Health
*Quiet moments - really rare around our house.
*My Sewing Machine
*My parents


My list could go on and on, but that might get boring! What are you thankful for?

In addition to being thankful for family, I find as I get older that I am increasingly thankful for good health (as it can be snatched away so quickly) and also enough financial security to not struggle to provide the daily necessities of life. That's not a long list, but it really speaks to how I feel as I am now in my senior years! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

I am most thankful for my health, my wonderful husband of 50 years, my children (5) and their spouses, my 10 grandchildren, my 3 sisters and their families, my friends, old and new and all my great blogging buddies. I don't know how I got along without you all. Bless You.

Your going to make me cry...you really know how to bring back fond memories of little ones. Cherish the moments dear friend as they pass ever so quickly.
I'm thankful for each day...each one a gift.

I love your list...
Milk - I love it, but I am lactose intolerant (which I am sure is a JOKE as how can a chocaholic be lactose intolerant)
Judy - I love her too, she is a crack up
Running- none of that happening I dislocated my knee cap this week and to be honest, I only run if there is a dessert buffet and/or chocolate involved.
and ditto for the rest of your list...


I am thankful for air conditioning (tis summer in australia and freaky hot)
I am thankful summer rain showers (we are waiting - tapping foot)
I am thankful southerly changes (gotta love those)
I am thankful for cotton clothing!
