Ten things I'm grateful for....

One: My family.  I am so very blessed to have the family I do.  I never thought I would be lucky enough to have the family I do.  (above, my three nephews with Bre)  I am so lucky to have them in my life!

Two: Forgiveness.  It is something we all need at times in our lives.  We are hear to learn and of course that means making mistakes.  I am so very thankful that forgiveness can be given but also received.

Three: Home.  I love this home more then any other we have ever lived in.  It feels like home.  It always feels good to pull in the driveway.  I love just sitting quietly and thinking.  This home gives me such peace.

Four: Friends.  I am so very blessed to have friends who really know me and accept me for who I am.  It's so nice to have people that get you and you can be yourself with.

Five:  Roxie.  She is the first fur baby we had as a family and she is such an important part of our family.  She is loving and sweet.  She is a true gift who loves us unconditionally.

Six: Books.  This year especially I have found books to be such an escape.  So lucky to be able to have time to read and get lost in the stories.

Seven:  Weight Watchers.  This has truly been the best program for me.  I have succeeded where I haven't been able to before.  I am still working hard.  I have been off track with it the last couple of months, but I am still way ahead of where I started!  45 pound down!

Eight: Hot Chocolate.  I love being able to sit by the Christmas tree with a cup of hot chocolate.  There is just something so soothing about it.

Nine: Paper crafting.  This hobby has brought so many wonderful people in to my life.  People who I met never have gotten to know otherwise.  I feel so blessed to be a part of this wonderful community building relationships with some amazing people.

Ten: My camera:  Silly? helps me catch everyday moments, important moments and the silliness that is my life.  I love love love being able to "see" those moments and me reminded of the feelings that were present at those times.
