I have started these threads before but it has been a while. Time to get it going again dont'cha think? :)

I was blessed today because....

I had a dentist appointment to get a temporary crown, but I have a good dentist and I have insurance :)....I am blessed

I was early....blessed with no traffic :)....I look up and see my :love: daughter :love: pulling in :carrot:....she usually works on Wed. but is working tonight and had the day off....she lives about 45 minutes from me, I had no idea she would be there for a cleaning...as I open my truck door she rolls her window down and with her big smile yells..."There is my daddy!" :) I am SO blessed....she stayed after to visit with me before I went to work.

Angie made pork chops with a really awesome sauerkraut...almost sweet really...the kraut...not Angie ;)...I am blessed :)

How about you? Any good blessings today?

I was blessed today because... the sun was shining, I was healthy enough to climb up on the bicycle and pedal. Others might not be so fortunate.
I am always blessed to have a wonderful family. Thank goodness we are all in good health right now.

Blessings to you all and to EZ for making us stop and think about the good things.

I was blessed today because ...

1. My husband travelled safely through the mountains & came back home without incident & harm (moose, deer, truckers)

2. My son's parent teacher interview was tonight - the teacher is blown away w. our son & has high expectations for him ie. teacher's aid! Praise God for answered prayers!

3. My hubby is having dinner w. a childhood friend who was in town for business - when he's blessed, I'm blessed!

4. lastly, I had the energy & motivation to exercise twice today!!

Have a good night ladies, with blessings,

I was blessed today because....

I had work today! I had 5 guys calling me looking for work today.

I met my wife in the driveway, and we walked our dogs together, after work.

Although my party took a big hit...I am proud to be an American this week.

Angie made an awesome diiner of polenta with spinach and tomatoes.

My daughter called me to tell me my SIL will be on the local news in the morning.

I am truly blessed!

I was blessed today because my boss was on vacation (which means I'M completely in charge of everything!) and I ALMOST felt like I could ironically relax.

I was blessed today because despite falling off plan and having a some ice cream, it was Ben & Jerry's Limited Batch Pumpkin Cheesecake. I was blessed because I FOUND the LIMITED BATCH after three days of SEARCHING ;)

Gary, I am BLESSED TOO because I am DANG proud to be an American right now!!! :D

I was blessed today because I got a great workout in this morning AND ordered more really yummy BSN Lean Dessert protein shake stuff -- for those who haven't tried it, look it up. It's a bit pricey but it's the best tasting protein shake ever and totally worth it.

I am blessed today because I have a great job that allows me to afford the protein shakes ;)

I am blessed to have reasonably good health. Even if I do have a chronic illness, at least it's a mangeable one! And I'm insanely healthy in every other way.

I am blessed because it was a beautiful day in Florida and the hottie mchothot bartender boy at Ruby Tuesday flirted with me :o

AND last, but MOST of ALL - I am just HAPPY to be comfortable with myself, SATISFIED with my place in life, and any complaints would seem trivial compared to what others may have to deal with!

I am blessed today because although I can't do my in-home walking program any more due to my bad knee, I have been able to peacefully accept it. (I can still do calorie counting!) :)

I am blessed today because I have now lost 50 pounds. I know it's because of a lot of hard work, but it is absolutely a blessing too. Because even though I could list lots of reasons why I changed my life in April, I knew all those things for years. I still can't say what changed my knowing & thinking (and procrastinating!), into doing - that's grace, however you define it . :D I feel very blessed.

Thank you JULIE.

Last June, on around graduation time, my son was asked, by the parents group at the high school where he teaches, to be the guest speaker for the baccalaureat ceremony. When I saw him up on the stage, giving his speech, wearing his suit and tie like he does a lot of days teaching, I realized he was all grown up!

Last night, as I watched my daughter hostess the fundraiser for Max and saw how people "respected" her I knew she was all grown up!

My kids are with me in my avatar pic.

Here is a link to MAX...a true SUPER HERO! http://maxspartacus.com/?page_id=2

I was blessed today because my aunt came up to the house to watch the Patriots football game and she, my mom and I were able to sit around the kitchen table reminiscing about my grandmother and grandfather who are both deceased. I never was able to meet my grandmother as she died when my mom was 17 and my grandfather died over 15 years ago, but I love hearing stories about them and how much they loved each other. Definitely put a smile on my face :)
