Ahh, I knew it would eventually happen. I missed posting my gratitude yesterday. I think I did pretty well though 🙂 I did have my appreciations through out the day yesterday though so all wasn’t lost.
Let’s see if I can do a nice list there, combining all the various things I was grateful for over the two days.
- Bright blue skies
- Sunny days
- A nice clean car
- Jogging (Hey!! I can jog a little!! Woohooo!)
- Having the funds to get my grey gone for a while 🙂
- Having my body let me know that it needed a break from all the exercise I’ve been doing in the last two weeks.
- Appreciation for my amazing three kids and husband.
- The wonderful neighborhood I live in.
- The birds singing in the trees.
- Appreciation of a good night’s sleep.
- Appreciation that there will be no alarm clock to wake me up tomorrow!
- Appreciation of a business that did the honorable thing.
- Appreciation for the fact that you can never get it wrong because you can never get it done.
- Gratitude for the new day that tomorrow brings.

Today was a rainy, cold, grey day. It was also a “run the daughter to her dance class after dinner” day as well. On the way home, I was feeling really tired and didn’t feel up to spending the 2 hours trekking back and forth.
I was so very grateful that my daughter had decided that she didn’t want to go to tonight’s class. There is definitely something to be said for little blessings 🙂

As I write this, one of my dear friends is at a hospital, far away, with her daughter. They aren’t sure what is wrong and a whole battery of tests are currently being run. Unfortunately, the medical issues seem to come one right after another with the whole family.
I am so very grateful for my health and the health of my children. I am grateful for every day that goes by and everyone remains remarkably well. Without a doubt, we all can, and do, focus in on the things in our lives that are not working as we would like. It’s a shame that it takes something like this to cause me to realize how blessed we really are.
