What am I thankful for ..

Happy Tuesday!

 Starting a Gratitude journal ( I had one before, not sure where it is now). We often forget how lucky we are and take time to reflect on all the things that surrounds us. Remember these are "things". In no random order.

1. My parents - thank you for giving me life. Without them I won't be here. My mom who is the pillar of my family, my dad ( rest in peace) who tried his best to support us given the life he lived.

2. Jon - where do I begin?? 20 years of being together, HE GETS ME! period.

3. Patrick and Jordan - they put meaning to my life.. thankful that they are growing up to be such gentlemen. I know there's more work to be done :)

This list will grow as I continue to blog.. Welcome to Thank You Tuesday!

Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you again!

I think our attitudes about life are what make us happy and successful. With an attitude of gratitude, you will get anywhere!

I think so much of you and admire what you are doing for all of those girls. Thank you!

You are right, a gratiude list can realy put it all into prespective! I love your list, I too feel that way about my husband, he was the first person to completly "get" me. 18 years of marriage and three kid later he still does! What a wonderful blog, I found you through Voiceboks and am now a happy follower. I look foward to reading more about your wonderful journey with those amazing girls!

What a wonderful idea. I think we often forget to be thankful for everything we have and especially the unforgetable people we meet along the way! Have a great week.

I'm in Mississippi & with all the flooding going on in neighboring communities, it makes me stop everyday to be thankful for everything I have.

I very much appreciate the reminder about having a gratitude journal. That used to be something I kept current, and its a habit i've let slide. When I read this post I went and found the journal and put it once again on the nightstand beside my bed. Thank you!

we often forget... so it's good to have a list to remind us what we should be thankful for. :) Happy Friday!
