Today’s list has one item:

Thank You to all the men and women who have served in our nation’s military. I look at the flag every day and thank GOD that I live in this country and have the freedoms afforded by your sacrifices. May GOD bless you all.

My gratitude list for today:

1. The beautiful weather. It really felt like spring and I thought I saw some of the fading blossoms perk up in the sunlight.

2. Work related – all my appointments showed up, As in being there and ready to work today. That does not happen very often. Instead of being drained, I felt more energized at the end of the day.

3. Writing is going well on my novel, Our group meeting tonight was encouraging and so fun hearing about others’ projects.

I can’t believe how this weekend has flown by. I haven’t completed many of my chores or met my word count for the day, but it has been a good day nonetheless.

1. I’m thankful that the church service went smoothly. Some days are a bit more challenging,but today we had lots of volunteers, the kids were attentive, and worship was AWESOME!

2. I got to play with my granddaughter for a couple of hours. Definitely more important even if she does wear me out.

3. Seeing how prayer is answered, especially in the small things. I know I am guilty of overlooking theseĀ blessings, but I am paying more attention. Thank You, Lord , for being so patient.

Today was a busy day but it was all good!

1. Had lunch with two friends I had not seen for a long time. It was like we just picked up from our last visit. Hooray for 2 1/2 hour lunches.

2. Found a great book on writing to share with my writer’s group next week. And, hoping it will help me keep ‘butt in chair’ for next 22 days.

3. My DH reset my watch for DST – I could not figure it out and have been watch-less all week.

November 6 & 7, 2014

Well, it happened. Yesterday I did not find a spare minute to even think about making my gratitude list. It wasn’t a bad day but I was totally wiped out after a long day. Anyway, I will double up for yesterday and today. It makes sense since many of my blessings came in two parts!

1. I am thankful for the recommendation by a friend for the devotional I have been reading for the past month. God Calling. The short lessons for the past two days have encouraged me to lean deeper on the Lord and be assured of His power.

2. While the weather has been cooler, I found some interesting routines to do indoors, just to let my knees rest rom running. They have been fun and some of my fellow runners are joining me.

3, I’m very thankful for new business this week. It seems if I am already busy, more work comes. If I’m totally free, no action. I think I heard something about synergy – is that what is happening?

4, Even though I could not watch my Browns play last night, one of my brothers texted me to update me on the score. And, it was a big win for my team!

5. I’m thankful for helpful friends who have better computer skills than me.

6. Lastly, despite the changing temps, the sky was the most beautiful blue I have seen since summer. It did not look like autumn at all.

Good evening. Today was a good day in that we got lots done. I love checking things off my list. Yeah, I get a bit compulsive sometimes,

1. I am thankful that we were able to take care of some bills today.

2. I made lunch plans with two friends for tis weekend – haven’t seen them since spring.

3. Thankful for the calmness at work and at home. Need the peace after a busy, stressful few days.

Today’s list is simple and quick:

1. I’m thankful that election day is almost over – the ads were very irritating

2, I’m very thankful that I got to play with my wonderful granddaughter this evening while her dad played soccer, two of my favorite things

3. My devotional reading this morning reminded me that the LORD is just a prayer away, I’m thankful for my salvation and the ability to call out to my Savior when the going gets rough.
