10 Things I Am Grateful For

I was reading Carla's blog today and loved her post about being grateful.  Since it is Sunday, I just may make it a habit to count my blessings at least once a week here.  Here's what I am grateful for today:

  1. I am grateful for my health.  Finally I am getting over my cold and everything else about my health is pretty good as well.
  2. I am grateful for my awesome hubby!
  3. I am grateful for computers and the internet.  Thirty years ago the lifestyle I am living now would have been impossible.  With computers and the internet, nearly anything is possible these days!
  4. I am grateful that I found a Timbuk2 bag (see photo) for my new computer and it was only $12.95 at Ross!!!  Usually this brand of bag ranges from $40 on up!
  5. I am grateful that I have more than enough food.  I was reading this article today and it was soooo sad and we often don't think about people who literally starve to death because we have so much amazing food everywhere we look here in the US.
  6. I am grateful that I am free to do basically anything I want.  Sleep all day?  No problem.  Hang out with friends? Of course.  Travel anywhere it the world on a moments notice? That too.  Freedom is a really nice thing.
  7. I am grateful for time.  At this point in my life I have a lot of time, again, to do with as I want.  Most people are pressed for time, many have no extra time in their day at all and I, well, I am enjoying the fact that I just happen to have a lot of time these days.
  8. I am grateful for the beautiful weather.  It has been around 80 degrees every day this week.  For March that is unheard of where I come from so I am loving every ray of sunshine.
  9. I am grateful that there is an amazing library system nearby.  I finally dragged hubby to the library and told him to get some movies.  He was surprised and said I never told him that the library had new movies.  So he has been watching about four free movies a day for the past week.
  10. I am grateful for well made products.  My new computer, my Timbuk2 bag, my camera...when a product is made well and works well I am a a happy camper.  
What are you grateful for today?


  1. Wonderful list!! :) I was going to start my list weekly as well... It's a great way to finish the week!

  2. Most people I know can come up (faster) with a list of 10 things that are going wrong in their lives. Counting ones blessings and being grateful for them is a much better approach. Right now...after a long Monday.... I'm grateful for my soft jammies. :)
