  1. I am thankful for the ability to be with my grandchild on her birthday, and to attend the wedding of my godson in the same state (though not the same city). I’m thankful for time with my daughter (the 5-hour drive to the wedding), and for my son-in-law who “held down the fort” so we could go together. I’m deeply thankful for the chance to see my dear, dear friend (the mother of the groom) in person for the first time in several years. Everyone went off together and left us alone to catch up for an hour and a half and that time was balm to my spirit.

  2. I am thankful for the hard work my husband puts into our garden, it is a joy to have flowers and veg all year round to harvest fresh and to have stored and preserved food which helps our budget. We also know there are no pesticides etc on our homegrown food.

  3. Today I am thankful for tea. We tried a new kind this morning, Russian Caravan, and it was wonderful. Isn’t it amazing what a leaf and some water can taste like? Truly, God is good to us!

  4. I’m thankful for my friend who shares her work lunches with me. Her office has several catered breakfasts/lunches every week. So much of it goes in the garbage as they clean out for the next days meal. The staff don’t seem to want to take it home and large quantities get thrown out. My freezer is full and even this week I haven’t had to make a lunch for work for several days. With the high cost of food, I don’t understand it but I’m thankful she thinks of me and shares.

  5. I am thankful for enough. More than enough, really. Enough for our needs. Enough to have two crazy cats. Enough to be able to feed the birds. Enough to be able to sometimes help others. I wish I had figured out what “enough” was earlier in my life.

    I am thankful to be within walking distance to the bank, grocery store, a copy center, and other stores. While I need to bundle up when it’s cold, when the sun is shining and I can walk to what I need, it makes me grateful and happy.

  8. I am thankful my parents were married for 48 years before Mom’s death. It was a wonderful, grounding model for relationships for me. Yesterday would have been their 70th anniversary.
    We found their wedding cards when we sorted out the house after Dad died. Gifts received were noted on the back. My grandparents were very generous, ($1000 in 1952!), money I wouldn’t have thought those farmers had.
    Mom’s younger sister gave them a tomato server in their silver pattern. That must have been a joke between them, as I can think of fewer useless special-use pieces, though of course it could have been used for other things on the rare times the silver cutlery came out.
    I think I am also thankful I am passed the silver generation for homemaking, as the Oneida stainless silverware works just fine and can go in the dishwasher.

  14. I am thankful for safe driving on slippery roads that seemed to appear out of nowhere (seriously – perfectly clear roads and then – boom – icky, slippery, and blowing). I am also grateful that my Mother’s hearing aids only required a cleaning and replacement of the filters
