    Ah, I’m glad you enjoyed all of these things! I read once you can not be thankful and angry at the same time, so being thankful really is a good thing. I’m thankful for my close relationship with all of my sisters and brother. I’m also thankful that I live in a free country.

    What a great idea! I love this gratitude practice and had forgotten all about it. Also, I’m glad you got some FaceTime with my momma!

    Thank you national holidays for giving my busy little family the time to get together.

    Thank you to my students, who have been so patient with the road construction leading to my house.

    Thank you white noise machine for making Eloise stay asleep through fireworks possible.

    Love you!

  3. I love the idea of thankful notes, Christie. This process certainly makes me think and then writing my thoughts down makes them more of a reality. I’m thankful to be able to spend time with my daughter, newest grandson Elliot and also being able to play with Ethan then take him to kindy. I’m thankful that my body is feeling good despite adding extra km’s of running training each week. I’m thankful for all of my connections through blogging who are so supportive and provide friendship to me and that includes you :). Have a beautiful week, Christie. xx

    • All lovely things indeed, Sue. There is so much to be grateful for, and I agree that writing them down makes it more concrete. Thank you for the kind words. I love my blogging friends too, including you!

    I’m thankful for You Chris! Once again you find yourself taking care of me once again through another surgery. If that wasn’t enough it was during the move to your new office. To say you handle stress well is an understatement.
    Thank you for being a fantastic Gma to our ten beautiful grandchildren and making days of the year special for them.
    And thank you for just being you. You’re a fantastic wife, partner and friend. I wouldn’t have ever thought that someone like you would be with someone like me? But I am so Grateful and Blessed to be able to walk hand in hand with you in this life’s journey we have made for ourselves, couldn’t even imagine what it would be without you!
    I love you “Three” and to the moon and back, and even a quick shopping spree at COSTCO, now that’s a lot!!!!

    • Thank you for the kind words. We have a pretty wonderful life, and I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else. I mean, if you love me more than COSTCO, that is a lot! 🙂 XOXO

  5. Well, you know how I feel about expressing gratitude 🙂! I love your list… and that lemon blueberry bundt cake looks yummy! So much to be thankful for this week: I’m visiting a beautiful part of the world with warm and friendly people all around. Even though there are language barriers, a smile is a smile everywhere.

    • The bundt cake was divine and even better since it was homemade with love. I am happy that you are enjoying your vacation. I love how you put it–a smile is a smile everywhere. Enjoy and keep smiling!

  6. What a great list, Christie! So much to be thankful for this week. We were in Quebec City during a heat wave. I’m thankful for having air-con and clean water, for having good health to walk up and down the hills while sightseeing, for having family and friends with me and a great time by all. I’m also thankful to be home safe and sound, with internet access to visit my blogging friends like you, and to plan my next adventure 🙂 Have a fabulous week and enjoy your new office!

    • Oh yes, Natalie, I am grateful for air conditioning as well, as we are in the midst of a heat wave too. I’m glad you had a nice trip and made it home safely. Thanks for including me in your blogging friends. The feeling is mutual! Have a wonderful week!

  7. Christie, A great list and I like how you put elements together. This week I am grateful for hubby doing all the driving on our trip home, grateful we were able to spend time with my mom & brother as a pit stop along the way, and grateful we have our place by the beach and a great place here in Ohio as well. Both houses now feel so welcoming and comfortable… it’s a joy to be in either! Have a wonderful week.

    • That sounds lovely, Pat. How wonderful to have two places that you can call home. I feel that way about our home in the city and our cabin in the mountains. And Larry almost always drives, so I get to enjoy the scenery. I’m glad you got to see your family along the way. Have a marvelous week!
