Today many vivid memories of teachings to always stop and be grateful seems to fill my thoughts.. I find myself practicing to do this on a daily and sometimes hourly basis... In retirement this instilling is a true blessing to my everyday life. Fast forwarding to this day I am glad for all things old. In aging I so appreciate their endurance.. The love of special little treats, like the little custard cup of fruit jello piled with 3 inches of whipped cream I came walking with yesterday after lunch that brought a smile to Tom's face as he commented" That's almost as good as butter, huh?"{ Paula Deen and me are butter acholics} The appreciation of everyday simple offerings makes life so rewarding... Today I am so grateful I have a warm home as it is single digits here... Do we really appreciate how grateful we should be for that? It is about lunch time and after that I believe I will head to the rec room and work on some altered art... We have plans on attending a guys basketball game tonight and then tomorrow we have a gals make up game at noon and a guys basketball game at Archbold in the evening... Sunday is planned as a day of rest and I have been informed there is a gals Ohio State Basketball game and a guys Ohio State Basketball game both televised by Tom... A few hours will be spent in front of the flat screen and always a homemade dinner will be prepared... Hope your plans are fun filled and full of gratefulness. Enjoy!

Sounds like much to be grateful for! I'm grateful for the yummy dinner we had tonight as well as having a warm house in which to sleep:). Of course, I am also grateful for all of my wonderful blogland friends like you:)!
