My Gratitude List

I'm grateful for all the people in my life.
I'm grateful to have a warm home with a full freezer and cupboards.
I'm grateful I'm able to live the life I have chosen in a country that supports my freedoms and rights.
I'm grateful for the occasional adversity because it makes me stronger and also allows me to see how blessed my life really is and has been.
I'm grateful I no longer feel the need for the trappings that were so alluring when I was younger.
I'm grateful that as I've gotten older I've learned to listen to and trust myself and my decisions.
I am grateful I've had a better life than my parents had and my children can have a better life than I've had.
I'm grateful for this holiday that gives me the opportunity to slow down  from my busy life of homesteading long enough to reflect on how much I truly have to be thankful for each and every day of the year.

I wish all of you the very happiest of Thanksgiving's and thank you for each and all of your visits here.  They keep me coming back.



  1. What a great post. Such a good time of year to stop and take stock of our blessings.
