Grateful Friday

(just a tad late since it is currently after midnight here)

Inspired by Suzanne over at My Life's Journey I am going to try and list what I am grateful for on Fridays. A nice way to remind myself of the good in my life, in the midst of all this IF. I think today is a good day to start this because I am dreading Mother's Day with a fierce passion. I really wish I could just skip it entirely.

Grateful List:

* leaving the library with six books I am excited to read
* C being off this weekend
* hanging out in the backyard with my dogs
* our DVR, I would be lost without it!
* my Scentsy warmer and scents arriving
* windy, breezy feels like Fall, I am fighting the urge to carve a pumpkin!
* Wii game nights where we trash talk each other and laugh all night
* finding cherry flavored cake icing...I adore anything cherry related
* Apple Cinnamon damn good

Short list this week but that's ok, hopefully next week will be better! I hope you all have a great weekend and to all my fellow IF'ers ::giant hugs::


  1. I love your list! I'm glad that you felt inspired by my list.

  2. "There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart"
    Celia Thaxter (American Poet, 1836-1894)

    I picked up on your blog about being grateful, and thought you might appreciate this quote.

    I am a new author of a book titled: When I Am Grateful
    It's a gift book that outlines the 'stuff' that can happen to us everyday and then reminds
    the reader how we can be grateful, even in the most challenging times.

    You can view a book video on my site which gives you more insights.
