Woman to Woman--Gratitude Day

Morning Glory at Seeds from My Garden says,
"Today for our Woman to Woman forum,
we'd like to know what is in your life
that brings a feeling of gratitude to your heart.
We're calling this "Gratitude Day",
and because it's September 11,
please share 11 things for which you are grateful."
If you would like to participate, please go see Morning Glory or Lei to sign up.

Eleven things in my life that bring a feeling of gratitude to my heart:

1. Lee--My Husband
I am grateful that we have had 38+ years of marriage. Our marriage journey has been an eventful, blessed, and never boring adventure.

2. Children--Our sons are fine, Christian men, who have brought us great joy (and only a few sleepless nights). I treasure them for the children they were and the men they have become. I am grateful to them for the support they have given their Dad and me as we have faced my husband's serious illness the past two years. I also appreciate and am grateful for the wives God chose for my sons. They are precious.

3. Grandchildren--What more can I say! GRANDCHILDREN! One of God's greatest blessings!

4. Books--I enjoy reading. I am amazed at the tremendous variety of books available in an increasing array of genres. A visit to a bookstore for me is a delicious treat!

5. Mexican Food--Nothing like a plate full of spicy food covered in cheese and salsa! Yum!

6. Starbucks--A reward I give myself as often as I can. What do I have to do to get the reward? Well, I'm the one giving the reward, so I get to set the standard. It can be a variety of things, like successfully completing the grocery shopping, remembering to put gas in the car, having enough money in my purse to afford a frappuccino--you get the picture!

7. Rain--I would be ever so grateful for just a little more. The long-awaited showers we have received are great, but our parched yard could certainly use just a bit more.

8. Bible Study--I had the most wonderful experience tonight with some absolutely fantastic women as we studied together. I can't wait for next week. Thank you, Lord!

9. Home--I appreciate the home we have that satisfies our very unique needs. It has been a blessing that came with perfect timing.

10. Travel--Lee and I have taken some terrific trips and had some amazing travel experiences. I cherish the memories of those fascinating times.

11. Computers--Well, let's see now, how does my computer bring gratitude to my heart? Oh Yeah! The means to blogging--Where would we be without it!

I could go on and on, but we were asked for eleven so I will stop now. Ladies, have a nice day and enjoy finding more posts at Seeds From My Garden and My Many Colored Days.

What a great Gratitude list! I can relate with you on each one. It is such a blessing and joy for me to share with other women like you.

I am a retired educator of 20 years. We are definitely true kindred spirts here.

I wish for you a day filled with love and laughter!

What a wonderful list! I'm especially in tune with the Starbucks one. Who needs a reason for a visit??

I love your list - can't relate to the Starbucks, though, since I have never caught the love of coffee - or even like!

Have a great day full of gratitude!

It's hard to stick to just eleven isn't it? We definitely love Mexican food over here.

I, too, love Mexican food--although it doesn't always love me. So wonderful to have a heart full of gratitude that sticking to just 11 is hard to do.
Thanks.

If the lists were longer than 11 I would have put rain and computers as well.
