Gratitude ~



I'm thankful to God from whom ALL blessings flow.
For my husband, children, family, health, and a roof over my head and all it entails.
For the trials in my life to help grow and stretch me.
For clean water.
For my soul mates that have come into my life to reveal another layer of who I am.
For friends who have come and gone.

I'm thankful for my friends who have stayed with me and stood by my side, encouraging me to be everything I am and inspire me to strive for more, all the while loving me in spite of my flaws.
For the friends who have left, they were in my life to help me through a season.
You are all, and were, the wind beneath my wings to help me fly higher.

I'm thankful for the freedom of speech and religion.
For my dogs who love me unconditionally and are always wanting to snuggle with me.
For the promise that there will be a brand new day.
For coffee, green and chai tea.
For chocolate and chocolate chip cookie dough.

  1. For all of the above I am thankful too.

    Now I started freezing chocolate chip cookie dough in bite size balls and cooking the rest into cookies. The balls go first..Grandsons know where I keep them.

    Love you Angela.
