My Grateful

Uncategorized

I’m a list person.  Just ask my husband.  I love them; He, not so much.

In honor of Thanksgiving this week, this is my Grateful  list.

1.  The suprise of finding out I didn’t have to work today after all (after getting over my initial annoyance about the fact that I had crawled out of bed before six to show up at work on a day I had off).

2.  Pumpkin spice lattes – Duane bought me one on the way home from work (which I didn’t do) this morning after picking me up 5 minutes after dropping me off.

3.  The Faithfulness of God – So glad that no matter how crazy this life can be, God is constant and good.

4.  The ladies that gather with me for book study.

5.  Social media – Sometimes I hate it but mostly I’m grateful for the opportunity it gives me to connect with friends and family who live far away.

6.  My keyboard/piano – I’m renewing my relationship with it after it sat mostly silent for 3 1/2 years.

7.  Soups – We might just live on them all winter.

And since ‘7’ is the perfect number, I’ll stop with this although this is definitely not an all-inclusive list.  I’d need the skies to be parchment for an all-inclusive list.  And before you think I must be a pollyanna with a grateful list that large, let me remind you that the amount of sky I see when I look up outside of my house isn’t as large as some parts of the world.  Just saying. Though my list could get pretty large.

Just grateful that seasons come and go. And here’s to hoping this cold season moves along very quickly.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Great list, Lucy. I really feel bad for you about #1.
    I’m hoping to join you in maybe some of #2 somewhere when we come visit you 😉
    I LOVE #3. I, too, have nothing else that is more constant and faithful in my chaotic life.
    I’d like to hear more about #4 sometime…
    Anyway, cheers to 28 more days to go tip departure day!!!

    Jolynn, I definitely want to talk to you about #4. Also, the new cafe is in. You and I are going out for coffee and crepes when you come. Please come quickly.
