I am Grateful

I wanted to follow Skys example and post a list of all the things I am grateful for. Thanks Sky, after reading your post, I was prompted to think of my own grateful list. 

I am grateful for my children, that includes our little Thomas. I am grateful for my days as a mother. I am grateful for my Husband, I am grateful for the love that he showers on me daily. I am grateful for my home and the protection and privacy it provides me. I am grateful for our jobs and the income they provide. 

I am grateful for memories the easy ones and the hard ones. I am grateful for family and friends and their relationships (good and bad) because they become living memories. I am grateful for my experiences even when they don't seem positive, they are always positive because I will always learn something about myself or others.

I am grateful for my mind and my health. I am grateful that I have freedom to make choices about my life, where I go and what I do. I am grateful that my God loves me, even though I know he just cant help it. 

I am blessed also. Thank you.


  1. even through all our grief it's nice to have a reality check sometimes.
    we need to open our eyes and appreciate all the good things we do have :)

    thinking of you

  2. This is a good reminder to all of us. Thank you for writing me. Your blog is lovely. I have 2 sets of photos too, and that second set was taken with exactly the same mindset: he'll want to see these later and, subconsciously, I needed the distance from the harsh reality. I've added you to my reader, I'll be back.
