What Are YOU Grateful For?





Why is it so hard to be grateful?


I'll tell you why. We are some busy, crazy, people who are just trying to make it. It's really in the quiet still moments (what are those?) that you are grateful. That's why you REALLY have to make it a priority.

So here's my list.

I am grateful for a husband who is beside me, provides for me, and resides with me. In my home and heart.

I am grateful for my daughter who lights up a room and tests my patience.

I am grateful for a son who's sweetness is palpable, wonderful and heart wrenching.

I am grateful for my blond dog who keeps me safe and likes to snuggle.

I am grateful for my two cats who ask nothing and give everything.

I am grateful for a family who cares about me.

I am grateful for friends who know what's important in life and in love.

I am grateful to be working at a job I love, with people I love, and a business I love. That is passion.

And I am grateful for every single person who has read, commented, enjoyed, cried and been a fan of this blog.

LOVE YOU ALL.

You do have a lot to be grateful for.

This year I am especially grateful for people I love. My wonderful husband. Friends and family near and far, my brand new baby and my four year old baby.

With a year that has been trying I am grateful that my mother has survived two aortic dissections and my father has survived a stroke and a few melanoma surgeries.
I am also grateful for a wonderful husband with whom I just celebrated anniversary #14 yesterday.

I'm grateful that soccer season is over until January, that I only do carpool p/u on Mon and Tues, and that NC State basketball is finally ranked in the top 10- ahead of Duke and UNC no less! :-) But I loved your serious list, too and am thankful for many of the same things.
