Thankful Thursday

Every once in a while (seems like more so lately) life events occur that stop you in your tracks and cause you to ponder life and all that you have.

I started a whole list back on Sunday to be posted today but then when I went back and re-read things, the words sounded funny.  Admittedly I am horrible at grammar, so that explains why.

I guess I need to leave it at this:

I'm grateful for friends, family, health and life.

I'm grateful that I don't have to know all the answers.

I'm grateful that I don't have to judge anyone else or be responsible for anyone but myself.

I'm grateful that I am afforded the luxury to just love people and that it comes easy for me.

I'm grateful I have so many people in my life for me to love.

And today of most days - I am super-di-duper grateful for Splenda Daddy.

He's a saint ya know............

A fine list indeed. I have a similar list and I am grateful. I feel like I need to concentrate on the good things in life more often, but darn it - it's so easy to get sidetracked!

when I am looking for answers or just peace, I turn to gratitude, just like you posted.

Happy Anniversary, he is a saint.
The 2 of you are perfect together!

That pretty much sums it up. It is wonderful to have good people in our lives....
and It is wonderful to be able to love people back
without judging as you said
and without having to know "all the answers"

love you !!!!
