No matter what is happening in your life. . . lots of good things or not so good things - there are always things for which you can be grateful. It always puts life into perspective!

Please feel free to join in. It feels good.

(Studies show that this daily task can have a positive impact in your life .)

Hi Cathydoe - so glad you are liking the gratitude thread - it's been important to me to do so on a daily basis for many years...

- new possibilities today

- see dermatologist today - my 70+ blotches are gone. I am grateful. Now I have a raging and painful skin thing under my fold/apron. I hope he can help me with it.

- my home

- DH

- friends, family, this site, cell phone, internet, facebook

- DS had a great time at the retreat and golfing time

- my sister is feeling hopeful about her back surgery today

Today is a good day and I am feeling grateful for so many things.

- I feel so good. Two years ago I would not have thought it possible to feel so good.
- I have an extra busy week this week. Work during the day and VBS at night at church, yet I am holding out fine. I could not have done this two years ago.
- Record attendance at VBS
- I am in charge of crafts for VBS. We have completed the tee shirt painting and the footprints. The hard, messy things are done and the rest of the week should be a piece of cake. (Cake to have, not to eat. )
- My New Balance sneakers that make me want to move!

Today I am grateful for;

- deep pink phlox scenting my kitchen
- a big basket of real tomatoes - salsa or chilisauce?
- Stratford and Christopher Plummer on Thursday
- my dogs love going to the kennel
- I don't have to work the Bingo tonight
- 24 more sleeps until Cape Breton with Linda
