Gratitude Journal #56

Today, as we take a rest from labor, I am grateful that George has a job. So many who want jobs don't have them. I pray they soon find work.

Today, I am grateful for yesterday at the park, a day of perfect temperatures, blue sky, and peace...

of laughing at Daisy chase leaves in a perfect fall breeze...

and of boys climbing trees.

This boy is wide-open and WYSIWYG. He's happy to be.

This boy is complex. Deep. Thoughtful.

And afflicted by a tummy ache because his daddy spun him a little too long on the tire swing.

Today, I am grateful for skirt steak and a husband who can whip up perfect guacamole without a recipe.

What are YOU grateful for today?


  1. Boys in trees! Love it. :)

    I am grateful to be home, after a brief visit with my inlaws, who are in rough shape. My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years, and my MIL (whose dementia has gotten worse by leaps and bounds) has no earthly idea who I am. Worse, she has forgotten my children. Even worse, sometimes she doesn't know my husband, who is her youngest child. It is very, very sad.

    But we have jobs, too, and I am grateful. Also my cat's constipation is better. You are probably sorry that you asked me now.

  2. Love the photos of Daisy and the Boys.

    I am thankful that my husband and I (70 and 71) are in fairly good health, are semi-retired farmers, live comfortably, have two lovely grown daughters with jobs-one with Wal-mart 25 years and the other a middle school history teacher at our local school. I look around me and always think that things for us could be lots worse!! Check my blog to see how we were threatening to spend the girls inheritance. (GRIN)

    Nichole, sorry about your MIL-a sad

  3. I'm grateful for the innocence of puppies and children. I need to view life more that way!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
