2. For my husband of almost 34 years and the sweet children and grandchildren we share together.

3. The church where I attend and my church family who loves me unconditionally.

4.For all the sweet friends I have met in blog land.

5. For my Fairy Godmother who puts sweet pictures on my blog for me and even sweeter music. I love you Phyllis for the friend you are.

6. Spring and all the beautiful things it brings. The flowers birds and warmer weather.

7. My Mother for giving me life and teaching me how to always share whatever I have with others and to always be kind to everyone

8.I am thankful my husband's health is improving and he was able to return to work.

9. I am thankful that God is so good to me and meets my every need.

10.I am thankful for strawberries, home grown tomatoes To hear the laughter of my Grandchildren. For each day of life I am given.

such a good list and I too could go on forever on the goodness of GOD...we have so much to be thankful for, don't we. I take for granted, often the blessings of God. Thanks for the reminder on having that Attitude of Gratitude.

Such wonderful things to be thankful for:-) I'm so glad to hear that your husband is continuing to do well...I can well imagine how happy he was to have those staples removed. My friend Steve who broke his leg in 4 places in February is going for physio therapy three times a week and he's coming along well also. Hasn't tried to put any weight on his leg yet but he'll find out on Friday when he needs to start that. xox
