Things for Which I Am Thankful

Rate: 1 Flag

I am thankful for the simple things in my life.  For instance, I give thanks:

  • when the puppy does her business outside and not on the living room floor. 
  • that my recently spayed cat no longer "sprays" on the kitchen floor or countertops.
  • for good sharp cheddar cheese from Ireland.
  • on any day without a church meeting.
  • when I come to the end of the month and haven't overdrawn my checking account.
  • everytime my car starts and takes me where I need to go.
  • that most of my family lives 700 miles away.
On a more serious note, I am also thankful:
  • for friends like Dorinda and AJ that I first met on Open Salon and have subsequently gotten to meet and know in real life.
  • that my lovely daughter now lives with me and we get to spend a part of every day together.
  • I've made it to 50 and hopefully have a few more years to go in this thing we call life.
Finally, I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and have at least a few things in your life that bring you joy and happiness.
Peace to you all, always Peace.

Tea tom,although I drink coffee,I am thankful,for your article..cause it made me think of what I should be thankful about.I like that you in USA have a thanks giving day..Have seen it in movies here in Greece..We do not have such a day...And I think we ought to..cause sometimes even our thankfulness must come out of a nation day..of a comρelled reaction...I am thankfull about so many...and hatefull also....But one can only wander ....if our thanks are taken under consideration..So glad you wrote this..Best regards...
