A Gratitude List

My dearest readers,

A few posts ago I mentioned making a “Gratitude List” to help fight depression & subsequent attitudes that follow.  Of course I am grateful for my dear hubby, family, and friends. This list would be miles long if I mentioned them all (and be very boring to read) so …

So this list is what I am also grateful for:

  • My puppy (even though she is a complete and total pain in the butt, we adore each other)
  • That I live in a time with indoor plumbing and electricity
  • Hollywood Movies
  • Small towns
  • Retirement (I smile every time I remember that I am!)
  • Board meetings are only once per month
  • Novels – even the monstrosity I have written for the past three years now.
  • My blog. It saved my sanity in 2011-2012. (OK, but at least most of it)
  • I have the means now to see my BFF every year. (She lives 2,000 miles away.)

I cannot leave out the most important thing I am grateful for –  a loving God and a VERY hard-working, ever patient, guardian angel. I’ve never met him, but I know he is there. Always ready to protect me from (myself mostly), and kick my butt when he has had it with my stupidity and needs to get my attention.

I imagine he looks formidable and handsome – like Ving Rhames.

I am also grateful for so many little, silly things. Maybe someday I’ll put together that list for Thursday’s Giggles and Bits. It’s a thought!
