and therein lay the grats list
I'm grateful to still be able to have some money to buy outdoor flowers
i'm grateful to my husband to quit battling so much... we are where we are and that's all there is to it.
I had probably 25 things on my gratitude list (I cannot share all)

television cuz I've never appreciated it as much as I do now cuz its just different
I remember when I was a teenager and learning stuff then tv was very important and my father really monitored it


watching my husband sleep every night as he sits in his chair

the very simple things In life

when we used to have discussions that were so great here on this forum

estee lauder perfume: beautiful pure pleasures wedding linen

Living in this wonderful state that I do....yes we have forest fires but just about everywhere does. we have snow but are on the plains so no biggies like when I was a child. no hurricans or tidal waves.... no major tornados usually tho we do have them on occasion just not where I live but rather east of here by far. We have sun more than any other state and we're not florida.

I love where I live tho I have to have heat and I have to have a/c.. I'm very fortunate because I have heat and I have ac.

I'm a mile high tonight and it feels good!!!!!

June 8 Does anyone else have gratitude??? Really just a couple??? Come on in everyone

that me and my children were able to get my husband for fathers day an ipad .....

being able to travel by vehicle to the places I need to know and not have to bicycle or walk like some countries

being in awe of my sisters artistic ways

being artisitic myself but different than my sister

being able to use some fake flowers and put htem to use

my dil and how she is clever: she can do things to make someone feel like they are the worst person ever or she can think of the most cleverest of ways that most people wouldn't think of ever doing that are really different and creative

the secret garden (I'm really enjoying it)
the shack (I really enjoyed that one)
