Many folks in blogland have been doing days and days of gratitude posts.
Not quite sure why I didn't jump in on that - - - but I do know for sure and certain that it WASN'T because I'm not grateful.
So much for which to be grateful.
Here are just a few - - -
I am thankful for family.
Even for the son who does his BEST to torment and torture
His momma at every turn.
Yes, that WOULD be the son who delights
In removing the labels from the canned goods
In my pantry.
Son, you know who you are.
I am SO VERY THANKFUL
For this little sponge with
Dish detergent in its handle.
Makes swishing dishes before
Putting them in the dishwasher a breeze.
Oh, and my DISHWASHER.
For you I am TRULY grateful!!!!
I am thankful that my breadbox (which I love)
Can do double duty as a recipe holder.
I'm so thankful for reusable refillable water bottles.
Just think of all the plastic that is NOT
In the landfill because Fisherhubby and I
Use these puppies EVERY STINKIN' DAY.
Gotta love all the bright color too.
I am thankful for black bears.
They give us HOURS of joy each summer
As we keep our eyes peeled trying to
Spot one live and in the wild.
Sightings are RARE, so when we make one
We are giddy as school girls - - -
He loves getting in touch with his
Inner giddy school girl.
Besides, black bears give me something to collect.
Oh my goodness, I can't believe I didn't put THIS one first.
I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR FOOTBALL!!!!!
(Especially college football.)
I'm thankful that my dad started
Taking me to high school football games
When I was just an elementary school tot
And thereby instilled in me
A veritable LOVE of the game.
Right now, I'm VERY thankful that
Notre Dame, SIL-2's alma mater,
Is NUMBER ONE!!!!
I am thankful for these three vintage egg cups.
I had wanted some for a long time.
I'm afraid I may even have been coveting some.
Then I found these and brought them home.
I am thankful for bits and pieces of vintage nostalgia.
I think they help turn a house into a home
While at the same time reminding us of our
Roots and our heritage.
Oh my bloggy friends,
I am SO thankful that I NEVER
Have to use this washboard for it's intended use.
Just think, we COULD have been born
before the invention of the automatic washing machine.
Truth be told, I DO remember the old
Wringer washer variety.
I am thankful for this little stiff plastic dish scraper.
Makes getting those dried-on bits off
SO MUCH EASIER.
You too can get one at your local Wally world.
And last but not least,
I am so very very very thankful and grateful
For Thanksgivings past
When we all lived within an hour radius
And could meet in the middle
For a day of togetherness.
Some of those pictured above
Are gone now,
But I am thankful for time well spent together
And for the memories.
Yes BIL Joe, I'm even grateful to YOU
For throwing bits and pieces of rolled up napkin
All over my house, where I would find them for
Weeks to come - - -
Because it spiced up the day.
Now, to all of you I say:
For what are you thankful today?
