I am grateful that God gave me my sister Geri.  We will miss her but know that she lives on in all the memories we have and in her endeavors to teach others about music and reading.

Today I am grateful that we are battling cancer and winning.  I’ll not say I am grateful for my husband’s cancer but I am grateful for all that we have learned and how much we have both grown on this journey.

My Brownie troop leaders give me a warm heart and I am thankful to them.

I am so grateful that I am able to sit and watch my pup Charly breathe in the fresh air and wrinkles his nose every time he does so.

I’m grateful for my struggles, because they have helped me live my life with more intention and grow into a stronger version of myself.

I’m happy for my husband. He worked so diligently this semester while still making time for his family. He is an inspiration when it comes to achieving optimal work/life balance.

I’m grateful for the many philosophers, artists, and writers of the past that have given my life so much meaning

I am grateful for my 16 year old lady kitty who’s still a trooper even with failing kidneys and a bratty little sister. She brings instant peace and joy each time I look in her eyes.

I’m grateful for life & love, family & friends, dogs, good books and a beautiful new year for enjoying all of those.

I’m grateful for my sons’ sparkly smiles and their contagious squeals of laughter. And I’m grateful that we have the sort of couch that has good cushions for building forts.
