Thumbs up *****An attitude of gratitude.*****

No matter what is happening in our lives... good things or not so good things - there are always things for which we can be grateful. Knowing this helps put life in perspective. It feels so good to acknowledge gratitudes. Studies show that doing this makes you feel good -and, also, you'll have a more positive outlook.

Please feel free to join in and share your gratitudes.

**Being retired and financially able to enjoy it.
**Having a wonderful family.
** Living in a beautiful part of the country with a wonderful view out every window.
**Great family and a few dear, dear friends.
**Living in a country where a large percentage of the population needs to diet. Sounds nuts, but it means we have so much.

Sitting in my family room and enjoying the beautiful view out my windows of the snow falling. I feel like I'm in a old Bing Crosby movie,,Hmm maybe I'll put White Christmas in the DVD and drink Some IP Hot Chocolate,Yum!
Watching our 2 Airedale Terriers and our Golden Retriever romp in the snow.
Having a Hubby that tinkered with the furnace this morning when the temperature on the main floor was 59 degrees.:
Being able to find my mom a new warm winter coat at Kohls yesterday and she liked it .
Seeing my family in the kitchen,Hubby washing dishes,and daughter baking a cake. So grateful all of my kids know their way around the kitchen.
I'm grateful that I am taking time to enjoy the simple things in life ...there was a time that I was not as appreciative as I should have been.

- got home this afternoon. A wonderful visit.

- our little 6 year old neighbor shoveled the driveway. So sweet... I went to pay him some money. He said that dh already paid him. 'For today?; I asked. 'No, for last week.' I told him I would pay him for today, too. His eyes lit up. Very dear.

- coming home to a home that can warm up quickly when we set the temp higher

- friends, family, YOU ALL, fb, internet, cellphone, music

- got my paycheck for my performances, from the Arts Council...finally.

It snowed and my husband shoveled while I was nice and toasty inside the house .
Watching our 3 dogs romp in the snow with my husband .
The smell of a pot of fresh coffee brewing.
My electric blanket.
My Directv is working.
Not enough snow for kids to miss school.
Polar Fleece socks for my feet that are always cold.
February is a short month! Our cupboards are full
Everyone has gotten over from being sick.
I know even when times are hard I have a Promise to hold onto

I am so grateful to be able to climb the back hill to prune roses. This weightloss is helping my knees and hips.
