    I'm sitting at work having a pretty good day. Not too many people have come in so it's been relaxing and I have a chance to get on here more then usual. I'm thankful for this job, and my employers.

    I'm thankful that it's the weekend and I don't have to work again until monday afternoon at 4:30. I'm not too tired. A little nap after work and perhaps I'll get to do something fun tonight.

    I"m thankful that I have this place to come to and read your thoughts, and post mine on the good bad and ugly days.

    I'm thankful that it's winter here in georgia, yet it's a gorgeous day today!

    I really am thankful that I'm alive and have the chance today to experience life though, some days I would refute that sentiment :(

    Blessings to you all.

    for.....SO MANY THINGS!!!

    No matter how bad I feel...I thank God for my blessings.

    1. My husband is alive and well...and able to work....since I can't (and tolerating me).
    2. My four sons and families are safe.

    (I really count my blessings here...as I have almost lost my sons to so many acts of their own destruction in past)...God was MERCIFUL!

    3. A home...(to find some rest in)
    4. Food on the table ... and most of the bills paid!
    4. Strength from God to get through each day!
    5. Friends like all of you!!!

    I AM BLESSED!!

    For a loving family, being free from debt, having a warm home, my pets and for starting to feel a little better. I am thankful to be living in a democracy which women have rights in and we lack snow in UPstate New York! For friends here.

    Love Anne

    Have a great weekend everyone :D

    I am so very thankful that I have been able to really clean up this desk that I sit at every day on the computer. It was truly so grosse but I never had the energy or flexibility to do it.

    My husband will be in shock(thats if he notices) but it sure makes me feel better. I wont even tell you the dates on some of the unnecessary papers that I threw out.LOL!!

    Simple blessings :) Lindsey

    Lol. I must say, I seem to accumulate alot of papers too. I hate it. I did a lot of house cleaning this weekend, boy it needed it. Now I can't get the endless papers I need to go through off my mind :(

    I'm still thankful for my many blessings though, and I guess papers would be included in that list.. I will also be thankful when we are a paperless society!

    Today I had a very good day, absolutetly no pain and my muscles don't feel "rubbery" and weak for a change.

    We had a bad snowstorm and I was thankful that I could watch it from inside and not have to travel in it. It was actually quite beautiful.

    I'm thankful for all the wonderful stories and helpful ideas on this board.

    Now maybe tomorrow, I'll get to MY mountain of paper.

    So I must say again I'm thankful for it. I went to work at one job this morning and am now at my second job. I'm thankful that I have energy to keep going like this right now. I'm kinda tired but at least I'm here and glad someone thinks I'm employable :)

    I'm thankful to be able to come and read about the things you are all thankful for and rejoice with you all.


    I'm also thankful for my warm bed that I"m goign to melt in tonight. Tuesdays are my rough days.

    Bless you all!

    . . . for my little cottage. I'm so grateful that I have a roof over my head.

    I'm also grateful for my new assistance dog, Elsa. I'm training her, little by little, and she is so sweet and intuitive that I'm constantly amazed.

    Thank you, also, for this thread.
