I am thankful for the chance to chat online in French today. I forgot a word and substituted another word that wasn’t even close. The mistake made for a funny conversation.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I am thankful for the mild weather we’re having. It is a nice break from the extreme cold and wet heavy snow that we’ve had early this year. I am thankful that we raised some money on our silent at auction for our ladies club scholarship, loan and grant program and that one of our nominees received a grant of $3,000. I love helping young women in financial need apply for assistance. It i inspiring to meet such bright young women.

  2. I am grateful to live in a community where we look out for each other. We teach each other in exercise classes, offer rides when needed, walk together, watch movies together, and are interested in one another’s well-being.

  3. I was really tired the other night and was so happy to pull on my flannel nightgown and climb into bed to read a while before sleep. I realized how thankful I am for my flannel nightgowns. I’m pretty sure living through all those Minnesota winters has something to do with that. 😊

  4. I am thankful for our baby, who will be one on Friday. It was such a hard pregnancy, really a colossal struggle for the whole family, but she brings so much joy to all of us. I hoped all through every miserable day of that pregnancy that I would be looking back in gladness one day, and I absolutely am. Worth every second!

  5. I am thankful for people who give unexpected compliments, because those are the best kind! Case in point: I got in line at the post office yesterday, and the woman in front of me, who I know slightly, turned around to see who was there, and said, “Oh, Hello, Heidi! I thought I felt something warm behind me.”
    I shall see if I can spread her friendliness this week.

  6. I’m thankful for the gift of being able to spend time with another granddaughter and pass on tips and knowledge about baking. We had such a fun time!

  7. I am so thankful for those who came before me in my family, who were such great people and left a legacy of hard work, perseverance, caring and love.

  8. We have moved to an area of the country (northern VA) that is much more costly than I was used to. Not what we were expecting in retirement! But family is here, and we need to make this work.

    So I am thankful that I live within walking distance of a reasonably-priced grocery store (Lidl — similar to Aldi.) Both the prices and the walk do me good.

  9. I am thankful to be able to answer the voicemail for my husband and son. I can do this from home.

    I am also thankful, very thankful, that we were able to find what my husband needs for ski instructing. He’s the disorganized sort (but he tries) so I sneak in and get all together in the spring. Sometimes I do a better job than others. This year went well!!!!

  10. I’m so thankful for a midwife who answered her phone at 4:59pm today, just a minute before she was supposed to be closed, and she helped me get a prescription sorted out that the pharmacy had messed up. Just grateful- I really needed that medicine and would have had to wait until Monday to get the issue fixed had she not been so compassionate.
