Thankful Blessings Part 2

In the past few weeks I've been trying to make some changes.  One of them being my attitude.  Instead of focusing on the have not's in my life or what isn't good I'm counting my blessings.  I have been writing them down in a journal.  At dinner every night we as a family share what we're thankful for too. 

Here's my latest thoughts:  I'm thankful for....

an able body

The other night my hubby and I made a trip to the emergency room, he wasn't seriously hurt but we thought he might have broken his foot.  Anyway, a lot of people in the waiting room and other various things brought to my attention I have a healthy body. 

my warm home (in this weather lately I'm so thankful)

baking in my kitchen with modern technology

not moving again (this time last year was difficult getting settled and decorating for the holidays)

being with my husband (so many military wives and families are separated this time of year, we're so lucky!)

What are you thankful for this week?  I'll be back soon with some new recipes and some inspiring decorating ideas.  Shh...I'm doing mine before Thankgiving this year and breaking my own rule.

Blessings! ~


  1. God is so good!
    I am thankful for the following:
    good health
    warm house/food
    great husband (50yrs)
    being retired
    can pay my bills
    my children/grandchildren

    I could go on and on but that's a start.
    So happy you and DH can be together at this time.


  2. Much to be Thankful for Carey. I do understand what you mean by focusing on the "haves". Too easily we focus on the have nots.

  3. Hi Carey,

    Thanks for stopping by!! Your list is wonderful! I am so glad you DH wasn't seriously hurt. A trip to the ER certainly can put things into perspective, can't it?

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!! HUGS!!
