Cheryl - your daily post of your gratitude for indoor plumbing is inspiring me to remember to be grateful for the things I take for granted.


- two sane food days - I am grateful

- got my hair colored yesterday... looks so pretty. I love that I go to the salon at my mom's senior apartment. I love hanging with mom and her friends there

- inspiration from reading positive things

- my friend got a new kitty - Ginger - a cute tortie

- the daily paper on the front steps in the morning

- my family, my friends, YOU ALL

- water heater

Yes, I need to be grateful for the "taken for granted" things in my life like:
- an attractive and comfortable house
- my reliable Ford Focus which has earned a paint job
- fun and supportive friends
- well behaved and loving dogs
- Spring which always comes
- being able to splurge once in a while - I bought tulips yesterday
- living in this safe and beautiful part of my country

~I am grateful for fabulous dental insurance. I recently found out I have to get a crown, and would not have been able to afford it without the insurance.

~I am grateful for my daily walks and dinner with my parents. I've never felt closer to them than I do now and I truly appreciate the quality time and healthy environment that is allowing me to stay focused on my weight loss journey.

~I am grateful for two beautiful, smart, healthy children who amaze me and teach me something new every single day.

~I am grateful for the energy and strength that I have gained which is keeping me on this path, even when things have gotten tough.

~I am grateful that the rain has stopped and we have BEAUTIFUL sunshine today!!
