  1. My you have a way with words – you can even make lists enchanting. Thanks for helping me remember many thankful things I left off my list. But really “freeze dried ice cream”???
    Here’s to 2009 and the 100’s of thankful things that await us.

  2. Awesome list!!! 🙂 I love that you put pictures in too!!! There are sooo many more though… let’s keep going!!!

    And yes… Lynette freeze dried ice cream is freaking GREAT!!! 😉 I eat it!!! ***:D***

  3. I think you all are about the most well rounded people ever to come to this earth. You enjoy sooooooooooooo many different aspects of life and I think it’s so terrific. Thanks for your comments and love on my blog and yes I’m in for a movie night. Things that make me happy are: Letters from Missionary sons, music, flowers growing in the yard, fruit trees to pick from and eat sweet juicy fruit, having a quiet afternoon to myself, playing board games with friends or family, listening to people sing who have beautiful voices (something I’ll have in the next life), and reading friends blogs!!

  4. Great list, some of those bring back great memories…

    heres a few to add

    Webcam so I can see and talk to my loved ones that are far away
    Phone calls from a 3 year old grandbaby to say “I love you Grams!” and text messages from my kids that say they love me and to have a blessed day!

  5. 1. mornings where your husband gets up and feeds the kids and dresses them without waking you up.
    2. having money to pay for what you need and can do without the want.
    3. soon to be 3 beautiful girls that love each other more than I did with my own siblings.

  6. 1. Hot breezy summer days and cool, loose clothes and sandals
    2. having my husband cuddled up by my side instead of deployed in the war.
    3. Eating a perfect, fresh, delicious meal with people you love
    4. Being in awe at something so beautiful, that you forget yourself and are encompassed by the emotions it brings to you.
    5. A warm summer night with crickets chirping while you sit out of the porch reading a book occasionally reminiscing about a night like this when you were younger.
    6. The amazing, fulfilled, proud feeling you get after a great run where you feel like you have the power to achieve anything
    7. Having the confidence to look in the mirror and say “god I’m goregous” and paying no attention to what the media says beauty is
    8. Marking something off your “to achieve this year list” and feeling the pride of accomplishment swell inside you,
    9. The moment you realize the person you’ve secretly disliked is infact disliked by everyone in the office. (terrible, I know)
    10. Knowing that whatever terrible event happen to me, no matter how bleak or torturous, that I will have my husband, family and friends ALWAYS there to pick me up, dust me off and help me through it
