Gobble, Gobble Good!

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you! I hope that today finds in you the presence of those you love, and that you take the time to truly have thanksgiving. One thing I am constantly aware of, is being exceedingly grateful for all that I have. I often say that I am blessed, and that LIFE IS GOOD! That doesn't mean that I haven't had my share of heartache, or that I have lead a life that everyone should aspire to, but it does mean that I know, and accept that this is the life I have. It is up to ME to make it what I want, and to always be looking for the bright and better side of life. In this....I find that I can be successful.

Several years ago, I started a gratitude journal, where I wrote 3 or more things I was grateful for each day. It really did help keep me in perspective, and it is a blessing to go back and read some of the things I was grateful for. I just spent a few minutes looking back.

April 2003
-I am grateful for beautiful blue sky. Sometimes when I look at it.......I can't believe how incredible it is. It truly is an amazing thing to look at.

-I am grateful for fun days with Friends. I love to scrap and chat, shop and chat, and chat and chat! I don't know what I would do without friends. :)

February 2003
-I am grateful for the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen the other day. sunsets can be soooooooooooo amazing. God is Good!

-I am grateful for a fun time learning to use my digital camera. I really think it will make picture taking fun! :)

January 2003

-I am grateful for a nice warm shower on a cold evening. I love standing in the hot water. it feels so good and is so relaxing before bed! :)

December 2002

- I am grateful to have had the opportunity to lower our home loan interest and time. It will save us a ton of money! That is always a good thing.

And Thanksgiving 2002

-I am grateful for a nice easy Thanksgiving dinner at my mom's house. It was nice to see some of my extended family.

As you can see, my grateful thoughts didn't have to be BIG things....just anything that I could focus on that helped me see that LIFE IS GOOD. I am not certain why I stopped, but I am sure that I should start up again, and what better of a time to start than RIGHT NOW!

-I am grateful that the first thing my daughter says every morning is, "Mama!"

-I am grateful to be a trusted friend and confidante. It isn't always easy, but it is an honor to be the one people go to when they need help.

-I am grateful that I live close enough to family so that we can see them as often as we want, but not so close that there are visiting every day. wink wink...

-I am grateful for lovely, relaxed evenings at home, where Sugar Bear and I are free to sing, play and make cookies.

Gobble, Gobble Good Cookies indeed! I got this idea from the Ramblings of a Crazy Woman. Thank you!

Have a Super Fabulous Turkey Day!

gratitude journals are a wonderful thing to have - and especially if you're having a tough day you can go back and see all the things you've found to be grateful for.

Sorry to hear Sugar was sick on Thanksgiving, hope she is feeling much better!
