My Gratitude List

(Not-so) Cynical Knitting Gal came up with a brief gratitude list, and invited everyone to do the same, so here's mine.

  1. Family that I love, and they love me.
  2. Emma, Tara and Cooper.
  3. All of the fur babes that I have had and have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Yes, it breaks my heart to think of them, but I will be forever thankful for the joy that they brought to me while they were here on earth.
  4. A comfortable home. If you call setting the thermostat at 57 degrees "comfortable."
  5. The Pellet Stove. Without it, I would never be warm in the winter.
  6. Knitting. There are times I would go seriously bonkers without it.
  7. My job. So many are without jobs, and they are dropping like flies around me.
  8. The fact that I was born in the USA. For all its faults (and there have been many, especially over the past 8 years) there is still nowhere else I would rather live. Except maybe the north of England, or Ireland, or Tuscany, or an island off the coast of Greece. I've never been to any of those places, but they sound really nice! But I digress.
  9. Chapstick. I am addicted to it, big time! And last, but certainly not least....
  10. All of the wonderful friends I have made over the past couple of years through blogging. You all know who you are! Virtual hugs to you all.

Anyone want to play along? Let me know so I can check out your blogs.

Chapstick has a place in my pocket everyday. "Hello, my name is donna lee and I am addicted to Chapstick". I'm going to give this list a thought and then post one of my own.

Love the list. I am also thankfull for my pets now, and any pets that have touched my life, including clients and their pets.
I too am addicted to chapstick.
