Feeling Grateful

(Thank you to Nancy over at Life In The Second Half for today's post title)

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

I hope that wherever you find yourselves on Thursday - be it with friends or family, you find yourself happy, healthy and able to give thanks for whatever blessings life has bestowed on you.

Me, I am thankful for:

My husband. He is the love of my life and is truly The Best Husband In The World (for me)

My children. In them I see our future.

My grandchildren. They are precious reminders that life goes on...

My parents. They serve as examples of a life well lived, a marriage taken care of and family values.

My siblings. They put the FUN in dysfunctional and make me smile and laugh out loud.

My home. We built it together - and it is more than a house.

My kitchen. This room is where I do my best work.

My friends. I can count you all on one hand. And that's all I need. You sustain me.

My dog. You drive me crazy, but you give me such love and loyalty.

My health. I will strive to do more to protect it.

My God. For always listening and answering - even when I don't like the answer.

My country. This truly is the greatest nation on earth.

My freedom (see "My country" above)

My countrymen and women. To those serving here and oversees, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Here is hoping you have a safe, happy and healthy Thanksgiving.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you. I love your list of gratitude. It is touching and inspires me to think of things to be grateful for that are a little out of the box. Although, my kitchen...nope, still hate it. Somewhere there is a sledge hammer with it's name on it!

  2. Amen.

    Hope you have a peaceful Thanksgiving.

  3. Good day to reflect on those things...

  4. I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Your list is great, what a beautiful gifts of love you have been given.

  5. The fact that it's my MIL's turn to cook Thanksgiving dinner.


Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love feedback... what with being a cook and all. I will respond to your comments via email (if you do not have a "noreply" address or here, below your comment) As always, Bon Appetite!
