November ONE

So this is GRATITUDE month.....what are YOU thankful for? It is good to have some time set aside to be FOCUSED on gratitude.  We mean to have that attitude every day, right??  But it's so easy to be so busy that we forget to FOCUS on it.  We forget and we take for granted all the things in our lives that mean so much!  So LET'S take Fridays and FOCUS on gratitude.  All other things put aside for the moment, I will list FIVE things I am thankful for on Fridays in the month of November.  I will take everyday to consider and at the end of the week, post my five here.  Please feel free to join in and list your five in the comments!!  Let's encourage each other to be FOCUSED on gratitude.  Besides, it's my ONE move to be sure Thanksgiving isn't overlooked as a one time thing between Halloween and Christmas!!  So let the gratitude fest begin.
For today, I want to tell you that I am thankful for:
1. My God....He is my strength and my salvation, and without Him, I would have no hope of heaven.

2. My family.....what a joy to be a part of this blessing!! I am often in awe of what God has done.

3. My hands....I am often weary of the daily chores it takes to make a household function, but truly I am glad to be here and able to do the things I need to do, day in and day out.  I have many fruits to show from my labors, and I am thankful.

4. Coffee...yes, it is one of the good parts of waking up each day, and I am thankful to be able to enjoy it!!!
My perfect cup is a tall latte mug like this one, with my coffee, some real cream and stevia.  I don't always use real cream....but that's how I like it best!!! What about YOU?
5.  My home.....I REALLY enjoy making a house a home....I love to decorate, and make it beautiful space. I don't always love cleaning, but that feeling is one to enjoy, for sure, when it's all done. Some people love to clean....I wish I had that gene.  But one does what's necessary for life, right??

So tell me, what things are YOU thankful for?? Looking forward to more of's one of my favorite months!!!

I try to start my prayers with thankfulness to God. I realize I am truly blessed in so many ways. As I am aging I am truly so thankful for my good health and I still have a lot if stamina to move pretty much all day long.

I am thankful or a very loving family.
