Okay, in lieu of another “I’m panicking and whining about it” post, I thought it might do me some good to post some things that I’m grateful for, ya know, in honor of Thanksgiving blah blah blah,.

I’m thankful/grateful for the following:

Coffee – ‘nuff said

• My 4 year old, whose latest favorite game is “can you guess how much I love you?”

• My mom – she is so unselfish and she’s like a walking cookbook. I can’t count how many times our phone conversations have started with “Mom, how do you make (gravy, chocolate pie, punch, etc)?

People who unknowingly provide me with an answer, an attitude check, or a good belly laugh (bloggers, I’m looking at you).

• My God, who always takes care of me, even when I have trouble remembering to trust Him.

• A really good song – the kind that can make you cry your eyes out or dance like a Solid Gold Dancer.


Things that make my life easier – my new front loading washing machine, my crockpot, staple-pullers, UnderJams, the “backspace” key.

• My husband – for various reasons.

Tim Hawkins – go look him up on YouTube – he’s HIGH-LARIOUS.

Lunch time.


Well that’s just an abbreviated list, but it is indeed lunch time and I’m hungry so I’ll stop there for now.

Have a great Tuesday!!
