Gratitude Monday

I need to be more thankful, a good person recently reminded me of that, because I really do have a lot to be thankful for. I stole the gratitude Monday thing from a friend, I hope she doesn't mind.
Pecan tree at my aunt and uncle's house. From this tree we have a pecan tree sprout. Its really cool.

This week I am thankful for:
  • temperatures that will dip down a little once more before the onset of the triple digits.
  • friends and family who love me even if they don't understand me.
  • having a day with Gwennie and Rhayn getting a much needed "Daddy Day".
  • grape vines that are growing, as well as tomatoes.
  • having a good talk with Will about things we both want (and having him agree with me!)
  • finding out that I do not have a cavity.
  • writing about teenage experiences and being glad I am not that stupid anymore, and that nothing bad happened to me when I put myself in such danger. (More on this later, maybe if I can force myself to post the story of the one time I hitchhiked and the first time I drank, both awful stories I think.)
  • Will's job, which allows me to stay home and be with Gwennie and hopefully the future birdy, with out financial stress.

Whew, that wasn't that hard. In fact once I wrote the first one the others came pouring out.

It helps me to have a day set aside that I routinely focus on what makes me happy, or what I am grateful for. I look forward to reading what makes you happy!

hitch hiking huh? I remember one time a friend and I decided to hitch hike from Pima to Safford. A car stopped and it was a guy from our class in school. He took us back to the school dumped us out and told us not to do that ever again. We didn't.

I hope lots of people will take advantage of us being up here and come to see Alaska while we're here. I think it's going to be a great adventure.
