Every day this month, I’ve read many friends Facebook posts and Tweets expressing their thankfulness for awesome things in their lives.  It’s a great time of year to reflect on all we have (a lot) and to be thankful.   I never have gotten around to posting something daily, so I figured I’d create a post listing all my blessings.  And I have many.


  • My husband.  He is my rock.  He is the sanity to my insanity.  He’s a wonderful husband and a fantastic father.  And he’s super handsome.
  • My children.  God blessed me with two beautiful, smart, intelligent, and funny daughters.  I’m proud to be their mom.  I’m even prouder of the amazing young ladies they are becoming.
  • My family.  Everyone says they have the best family in the world.   But I really do.  I’m thankful not only for my own biological family, but so happy to be a part of Greg’s family too.   
  • My friends.  I’ve been fortunate to call some of the best women I know my close friends.  They make me laugh until my sides hurt, cry with me when I’m sad, and listen to me when I need them.  So thankful for my many friendships.
  • My pets.  A dog named Lily and kitties Gus and Charlotte.  I’m so thankful to have them to cuddle with every day.  And their antics and idiosyncrasies make me laugh.
  • My home.  It is truly my safe place.  My haven.  The place I want to be.  I’ve lived here 16 years and loved every minute of it.
  • My health:  I’ve had some health issues in the past but currently am healthy.  I thank God for this every day.
  • The kindness of others.  Whether it’s a person helping a person across the street or someone donating their services to help those in need, I love to see kindness in people.  


And on a lighter note:

  • Coffee.  While I’m working to decaf myself, I will not stop drinking coffee.  It’s too good.  It starts my day right and makes me happy.
  • Books.  I love to read (I don’t really watch tv at night) and can usually finish a book or two a week. I love when I finish a book and I can’t stop thinking about it.
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Holiday Candy.  Pumpkins, Christmas Trees, Hearts, or Eggs.  I’m addicted.  
  • My cell phone.  I love my connectedness.  It’s such an amazing thing to have information at my finger tips in seconds.  I appreciate it so much.
  • Word games.  Scrabble, Word Feud, Scramble with Friends....love ‘em all.  I tell myself that I’m avoiding dementia by exercising brain fitness.  
  • My computer.  I love my Mac so much I wanna marry it.  I can’t believe we all we can do with computers and the internet now.  I’m astonished daily.  
  • The water.  I’m so grateful to live in a water front town.  The beauty of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay is astounding and I don’t take it for granted for one second.
  • My camera.  The new one, that I have not yet learned how to use.  I’m a beast on the automatic settings though.  
  • My car (SUV).  So thankful to have reliable and comfortable transportation.  I can fit a whole bunch of kids and the dog.  And I love it.
  • Wine.  I used to be more of a beer drinker, but as I’ve gotten older, I feel like it bloats me and leaves me feeling full.  Wine, red or white, are always available at my house.  (Especially since discovering the  Wine Boat.)
  • Music.  All kinds.  I listen to everything from Classical and Opera to Top 40, Coffee House, Alternative, and more.  I love having an ipod, satellite radio, music stations on the tv, Pandora, and regular radio.  I can always find music to suit my mood.
  • Quiet.  I do love some peace and quiet.  I no longer love loud, noisy, or chaotic.   When it’s peaceful at home with my family and my furry friends, I’m feeling bliss.
  • My blog and my readers.  I’m learning so much about writing and love that you follow me.  I am so so thankful for you!!


I hope you enjoyed my list.  I’ve enjoyed reading yours.
