Nice To Be Thankful


1.   I am thankful for the new man in my life who has shown me love, made me feel appreciated, and given me hope for a brighter tomorrow.

2.   I am most definitely thankful that the weather has gotten up into the high 70’s and according to the weather report, this week is only going to get better.

3.   I am thankful that my two gorgeous daughters will be with me on Mother’s Day.

4.   This may sound simple but I am so thankful I was approved for insurance.  I have been without it since January 31st and since I’m on 5 different medications that I need, buying them out has proven to be a challenge.

5.   This applies to number 2.  I believe, but I am thankful for all the gorgeous plants and flowers that my boyfriend has bought for his flower garden and for his mother’s.  They are gorgeous, bright bulbs of happiness.

6.   I am thankful I lost 12 lbs.  Still not where I want to be exactly.  I didn’t do it on purpose or the healthy way. More like stress caused it.  It’s left me in a weird size of clothes too.  But at least it’s 12 lbs lost and not gained.

7.    I am thankful for the few people in my life that I can go to at any time, and they are glad to see me.

8.   I am pre-thankful that my job search has turned over some new leaves, and hopefully I will be working soon.

9.   I am thankful I got to spend time with my girls’ aunt, their father’s sister.  Her and I have always been close.  So, it was good to see her.

10.   I am thankful for the promise ring my man bought me.  {This should go under number 1.}

In reference to number 5, I will share pictures soon of the flower gardens and of my Wandering Jew Plant. 

This was my flower bed in 2000.  Hoping to make it better this year.

Ten Things of Thankful

Where to begin. I guess with # 1. 

1.  My god-daughter gave birth to her second son yesterday at 12:15 p.m.  I am thankful for her, her 1 1/2 year old son Austin, and his new baby brother, Keith.

2.  I am thankful to have a tenant move from my little house that I grew up in because she was wrecking the place.  Now, I have a tenant ready to move in whom I know will take care of my grandparents’ first home together and the house I grew up in.

3.  Very thankful that in 7 weeks, I will be getting a Chiwawa from a good friend.  He is tan with a small white heart on his forehead.

4.  Thankful I have the money to do some ‘back to school’ shopping for my daughters.

5.  I am so thankful we are taking a vacation on the 15th to Pigeon Forge, TN.

6.  I am thankful that the Wandering Jew plant my oldest daughter gave me for Mother’s Day 3 years ago is finally filling out.

7.  I am thankful for my close friend, April, who has been a God send the past couple weeks.

8.  Thankful for how many readers this blog has attracted.  Don’t forget to check out my other blog ‘My Constant Thoughts‘.  Thank you.

9.  Thankful for a clean house.

10.  Thankful for make-up because I’m sure my eyes have bags under them from little rest.  

Hop over to Considerings and tell everyone what your thankful for.
