The Gratitude Post

I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?

This week I'm grateful for:

50 Blog Followers! Hooray! I have 50 blog followers! Thank you so much for being here! I am so totally honored that so many of you have chosen to "regularly" read my words. It is truly an amazing feeling.

Vegetables: I love vegetables. Mmmmm. They are so tasty and I am so thankful that I love them and have them in my life. It's good to be veggie.

Dinner with Real Life Friends: This coming week, I have the opportunity to have dinner with some friends I haven't seen in a long time. One of them is making a big move to London very soon (and she's blogging about it) so this is the last time I will see her for a while. I'm grateful that I will have dinner, sans children, with some real people.

Hagen and 5 month old Heidi

Cats: We got our cats back this week after not having them for about 10 months (they were residing at my father-in-law's house). Yippee! (See that sarcasm dripping there?) I am grateful to have them, though because Heidi and Piper think that they are the cat's meow (pun intended) and run around after them all day long. Poor cats had no idea what they were getting into...

My sewing machine: Even though there are times (many, many times) when I would like to throw my sewing machine out the window or drive over it with a tank, I am very thankful that I have it. I have no problem sewing by hand, and I still do it quite often, but sometimes, the sewing machine really helps get the job done a lot quicker.


  1. Sans children dinners with friends can be so very good for a person! Have a lovely time!

  2. Ahhhhhh...sigh of relief. Thanks! :)

  3. Still thankful for everything I was thankful for *last* week, but if I had to add anything to the list, I'd say movies! I don't have the time to see many of them lately, but when I do it's a great escape into another world - if only for a couple hours. ;)


  4. Absolutely, Rosie! I can't remember the last time I went to the actual movie theatre, but we do have netflix!

  5. I am so thankful for my supportive husband. Any of my sudden whims to do crazy things are greeted with support. I tell you it is Night and Day difference from my previous life!
