1000 Reasons to be Thankful

I hope every Mom had an awesome Mother's Day weekend. Mine was...well, it wasn't anything special. It was but I had to work, clean up cat puke and I ended up getting irritated at my local Subway for not having the one thing I had been craving all day. But I survived and its the beginning of a brand new week.

I decided to take the time to be thankful for people in my life today. I always say that people come into your life for a reason, whether to encourage you or for you to encourage them or someone that just makes a difference in your life. These are the people that have made a difference in my life so far.

61. My kids and hubby, of course. Even though my kids are not small, I love them both so much. No words can ever express how I feel about them, no matter how old they are. And hubby, too.

62. My family down in IN and beyond. I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters whom I love tremendously. My Mommy and Daddy are the best, too. I miss them so much.

63.My in laws.  Yes, I love my in laws and they have had some health issues recently.

64. My TJ Mom's group. They are awesome and always there for me. I have not ""met" them in person but maybe one day we will.

65. Cathy, Shannon, Missy and Bay...four women I have chatted with online for years now. We met online by a common thread and have been friends ever since.

66. My writer's group that I just recently joined. They have given so much good  advice that I am so thankful that they have not thrown me out of the group for all the questions I throw at them.

67. My 2 nieces, Chris and Meri whom I consider my long distance sisters...only younger.

68. My church family. Although with working pretty much every Sunday now, I still love the people that are so loving and giving. They serve so faithfully.

69. My GH group.  I just realized that I have alot of online groups now.  LOL It's funny how you join a thread and find friends in the process. No wonder I am online all the time.

70. My co-workers. I have mentioned them before but not everyone can say they love their co-workers. We are a small group and sometimes we can get irritated with each other, but they are still awesome.

These are the ones I think of today but I know there are many more from the past and more to come along.


  1. lol, most of my friends are "virtual"! It is good to find your niche, even if it is on message board. ;)

    And I love you too, Auntie <3

  2. i have been happier lately with new friends on line who are encouraging and we can relate to each other. it's wonderful!
