I am so grateful for everything I have. I'm grateful for big things like my faith, my husband, my kids, my extended family and friends. Then there's all the comfort things that make my life easier. My husband's job, our house, our car, clothes, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer, etc. This list could go on an on and is pretty much the same as most any body's. We all love these things.

Over the past couple of days, I've written down all of the little things that I'm grateful for. Things that make me happy, make my life easier and I take for granted. I'm thankful for:

  • tweezers
  • Burt's Bees lip balm
  • pens & notebooks to make lists like this with
  • pictures and being able to browse through them and relive memories
  • scarves to warm my neck
  • makeup (I really need it)
  • computers
  • word searches that help pass the time while I wait at a school for kids to get out
  • that I'm able to be a SAHM so I can be the one to wait at the school to pick up kids
  • a TV & DVD player in my car, they keep me sane
  • clean bedrooms
  • clean bathrooms
  • freshly vacuumed carpet and the lines left in it by the vacuum
  • freshly dusted and polished furniture
  • a little boy who's learning to talk
  • children who have a desire to learn
  • being able to provide service to others
  • sunglasses
  • medicine of all sorts
  • disposable diapers and diaper wipes
  • paper shredders
  • iPods
  • email
  • telephones
  • comfy blankets
  • good books
  • and many, many, many more things
