OK, gotta ask it. Tell me in the comment section at least ONE thing you are grateful for today!


  1. I'm grateful for warmer weather and the time to bake cookies today.

    Thanks andrea!


  2. I am grateful for yoga, for praying and for a husband who accepts apologies and me just as I am.

  3. I am grateful for my children, for their good health, and for my parents who are still around.

  4. I am grateful for my job which keeps a roof over my children's heads and food in their bellies and a loving God who provides all. Listing your blessings is a wonderful idea!

  5. Grateful for good friends ... like you! And for the love of our church family.

    1. Awe... and I'm so very grateful for YOU! And your family. :)

  6. Hot tea and indoor plumbing. Those are related.

  7. I am pregnant with my first baby and am starting to feel it move. The craziest, most wonderful thing ever! :)

    1. Kelly! Congratulations! That is wonderful! I'm so very very happy for you. This is one of the best parts of being pregnant! We used to love to tap on Oliver while he was in my "tummy" and he would often times respond. That was really cool. :)

      How sweet!

  8. God, my loving husband who accepts me as I am, finding Yoga to help my body and mind, being physically fit - and enjoying it!
