I have been neglecting to list my gratitudes.

On one day in November after mom had died and Al had been rescued from the woods and was safe in the hospital, I came home to find a package on my porch. It was erroneously delivered to us instead of our neighbor. When I took it over to her the next day, I explained how crazy everything had been (to justify why it had taken me two days to get it delivered to her).

She said, “Not much to be grateful for right now, huh?”

I replied, “No, I have everything to be grateful for.”

I think sometimes when you have these big things going on it takes all of your energy and focus to wade through them. When you are so grateful just that your husband is alive, then really, these little things don’t get any attention.

Thankfully things have calmed down for a bit now. *fingers crossed*

So I am able to put my head up and look around a bit more. I can get back to my daily gratitude.

Today I am grateful for:

Indoor Plumbing



Dr. King

Maya Angelou

six Word Friday: routine

I have little knowledge of routines

But this week was definitely not.

I look forward to their return.

What few routines I do have.

( Um, and look for us on the today show probably friday of next week (!!))
