Thankful ....

Okay, I know it's the tenth of November already, and I am already behind, but, I wanted to put out a challenge. I will list one thing I am thankful for every day until Thanksgiving. Let's all make a list and share our gratitude...
1. my family
2. James
3. the colors of fall
4. music
5. my friends (past, present and future)
6. living in the USA
7. Children's Hospital
8. taco salad
9. my testimony
10. sleep
11. cell phones, dishwashers, internet and modern conveniences
12. forgiveness
13. daughters who will change diapers
14. family dogs (and the lessons they teach the ladies)

15. Primary teachers
16. my brother's military service and all who protect our freedoms
17. James' patience and knock-out smile
18. Jay's sweet giggle and happy disposition
19. Samantha's competitive side (may she always use it for good...)
20. Rachel's constant questions
21. Charlotte's excitment in learning to read - it's a whole new world
22. Josephine's imagination and wonder at the details all around her
23. growing up with my Mom at home with us

25. my father's personal history - treasure now, priceless later
26. a kind smile from strangers day to day - southern hospitality

Um... yeah... Tina, sports bra and overalls. AND I would never, never let Jessie leave the house dressed like that. To my mom's credit: She didn't LET me out like that either. But look how thin I was.

I love your thankful list. What a great idea. Today, driving around town, I was in awe of all the beautiful fall colors. I love this time of year. `M
