Grateful #12

Grateful for my siblings in-law. They each are so special!  Tammy is an on-the-go, get-it-done person who provides a loving home for my brother and their children. Eric is a constant in my sister's life and is  really good with their son. Auriel is  the "newest" in-law, perfectly matches my brother and has stepped up to a daunting challenge. Love them all and glad they complete our family.

Gratefulness on Day 11

On this eleventh day of November, I am grateful for my brothers!  I am also grateful for Brad's continued health improvements...and for the wonderful man that my baby brother Josh has become.

Thanks #10

More gratitude. 

Today for my little sister!  


We talk all the time and share life's ups and downs. I worry about her, she worries about me. I give her pep talks and she provides me the same. We work things out. We're as different as can be, but we are sisters!  I'm so glad she's my sister!

Days 2-5

Already the 5th and I missed a couple of days. There is so much for which I am grateful. 

These correspond to my past few days.
Day 2 - Sunday
Grateful for my husband. He is capable of so much, from designing a system and installing solar panels to cooking a mean pot of chili. (The best ever). I am grateful for his love and continued health.

Day 3 - I'm thankful for my job. While frustrating, it can also be highly rewarding. 

Day 4 - I am grateful to have a running vehicle with perks that spoil me. (Heated seats, remote start).

Day 5 - I am thankful to have been born an American, and that I have the right and privilege to vote.

Grateful November

Grateful November

I thought I'd repeat my thankfulness exercise this year. It makes me realize that I have a truly wonderful life. 

Tonight I am grateful for how far have come in fixing up our "cabin". 

A little at a time this year, with the help of our family, we insulated,  we built a wall for the kitchen area, installed cabinets, replaced the air mattress with a real bed, brought out a wardrobe, and a storage cabinet. It's starting to be a bit homier. 

So I am grateful for the help of family and friends and I'll leave you with this blazing woodstove in our cozy cabin.
