So-So Grateful…

for a sweet, clever daughter that can add her own twist to a fashion statement.

for an “Uncle Dane” that can take a few simple props and turn them into a magic castle tent for Chompy.

that my hand is healing very nicely…thank you. Now where’s that crochet hook?

that a smile from this little dude can soothe an achy heart.

that a good book at bedtime is still a wonderful diversion.

that my sister is doing that “happily ever after” thing.

to come to this beautiful place with all 5 of my dear children…who aren’t actually children…anymore.

that someday…someday…I will take such a picture again.

Please, please share what you’re grateful for this fine day. I’ll add them to the Gratitude List AND in the quote rotator on the side bar. We’re nearly at 300 now–help us get to a 1000 “Things To Be Grateful For!”

    my 3-year old, who despite her speech delays, spontaneously blurts that she loves mom.

    my 6-year old birthday girl who proclaims that she is going to take her mommy to Hawaii with her birthday money.
