Give Me The Grateful Life - Monday

Hello everyone.
Yes, it is Monday.
The end of a weekend...
  the beginning of a loooong week.
(At least that's how I'm feeling this morning.)
So let's find something to be grateful about shall we?
  Or I (and possibly you) might just not make it.

  1. I am grateful for my sweet husband who busted his ass this weekend (and drove my friends crazy) to make a beautiful birthday celebration for me.
  2. I am grateful he bugged my friends instead of me.
  3. I am grateful for having so many fantastic friends.
  4. I am grateful for having the wisdom of my age (most of the time) but not the appearance of it.
  5. I am grateful for Southern California where the mountains and the beach are my gym year-round.
What are you grateful for this Monday?

I am grateful that my family put up with my evil PMS yesterday and that they all still love me today.

I'm grateful - even if I don't win - that I finally was able to comment on the "HP Magic Giveaway" I hate it when I believe in Magic - and it just doesn't accept my user name!

Hey there...Happy Birthday, MM!! I hope it was a great one!!
Today...as the afternoon...no, wait..at about 5:00 when I picked up the youngest, my good day went to hell...so I'm grateful that the day is over, that the ume (plum) wine bottle still has some left to help me put this day to bed...and I'm grateful for a 6-year-old's attempt at a heartfelt apology...that also helped.
have a good monday!!

Happy Birthday first of all. What a great hubby!

What I am grateful for this week is my health. The past several years, I have had a couple of surgeries and lots of recovery time. This year, it is the cold and coughs for me. I am grateful it is nothing more. I am grateful that because of that, I get to do random acts of kindness with my kids, help them celebrate the holidays with a family activity every day, and simply enjoy the joy of the season.

Thanks for prompting me to think about it!

As my life as just SUCKED lately, I have even more gratitude... for my awesome husband, my beautiful girls and the promise of things to come.
