I am so borrowing this idea from Chic Mama; but I told her I was going to - so it's all good.  She posts her grateful list on Fridays; so I thought I'd post mine on Sundays (or maybe Mondays?  I don't know).  Anyway, I think it's a great idea to remind ourselves from time to time of all that we really have to be grateful for; so here goes.

I am grateful for all the wonderful friends we have that came out to help celebrate Hubby's birthday.  We are truly blessed in the friends department.

I am grateful for the outstanding weather we've had this weekend; sunshine makes me incredibly happy.

I am grateful for the good job that I have - even though I really don't want to go tomorrow.

I am extremely grateful that I'm only a few pounds away from my goal weight (although that may have been compromised with all the eating this weekend.  Why does this family's celebrations all center around food??)

I am extraordinarily grateful that my dad seems to be doing better.

I am gratefuly for my little family.  They are perfect in all of their imperfections!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!


  1. A great list and I'm grateful that I discovered this through blogging....makes you realise how lucky you are and everyone has to have some positives in their lives. X

  2. Chic - so true. We must recognize the positives in our lives; otherwise we might dwell in the dregs that can be everyday life.

  3. I love the grateful idea too. I used to watch Oprah .. yes when my kids were napping :) She did it but I was not really listening . It does put the good things upfront for you

  4. You know I am pretty sure that most families celebrations are surrounded by food.
    Food adds comfort.

    That is probably why I need to lose a few pounds LMAO
