I watched *In Her Shoes* on Lifetime last night. One line from the movie has stuck with me all day. "Help someone else and heal yourself."

I think that there is something in that line for each of us.

I am taking a minute to stop and remember a few things that make my life sweet. I do have a good life no matter how much I whine. I am thankful.

Today I am thankful for:

1) ice cream and cake on toy story plates
2) scotch tape
3) a son who drives
4) a daughter who tries to make my favorite cake even if she left off the coconut
5) dvr
6) a paycheck
7) detergant
8) facebook
9) text messages
10) alone time
11) corgis with bells on
12) pre-lit christmas trees
13) gift certificates
14) redbox
15) clean panties
16) Sharpies
17) coupons
18) Advil
19) Wrapping paper with grids on the back
20) pj's
21) you

So now it is your turn. Tell me cause you know I wanna hear!

~clutches her diet coke and sings~ I'd like to teach the world to sing...


  1. Gash I don't have corgis with bells on BUT I have clean panties!
    Here's a short list:

    Thankful for
    family (human and furry)
    my home
    coffee with cocoa and cinnamon
    my friends (close by and internet)
    a car that runs
    hot baths

  2. I ADORE wrapping paper with the grid on the back! Never would I have imagined anyone else would love it, too!

    Flannel sheets!

  3. Your thankful lists are always so encouraging for me, Mindy! And they challenge me to think about specific things I am thankful for.

    Thank you!

    I'm thankful for a day of fresh country air, for a chance meeting of relatives in a cemetery, and for time spent in the woods.

  4. Hooray for the gridded wrap! I'm with you on that one...and many others. Yes, much to be thankful for. I'm always so pleased just to open my eyes in the morning.

  5. hot showers
    waking up in the morning
    a roof over my head and food in the cupboard
    my friends who love me
    my church
    coconut milk ice cream
    Nans raisin bread
    the beach
    John Mayer and Dave Matthews
    soft sheets and my bed

  6. Mindy, I JUST read that quote in the Sunday paper, today!
    Used to, when I was feeling down and out, I would go out and buy cards. Sometimes, randomly, sometimes with a certain someone in mind. It always made me feel better. Now it makes me happy to do my art because often it is for someone else.
    I'm thankful for:
    losing weight (now to KEEP it OFF!)
    warm home
    kind man
    fur children
    my dependable civic
    positive attitude passed down to me from my mama, her mama and my great-grandma
    best of all...my son and daughter!
    xo, Cheryl

  7. I love your post, Mindy. And I think the majority of us have so much to be thankful for. My list is really long, so I'll just tell you what I'm thankful for today:

    waking up
    my sweet fur-babies
    my sweet hubby
    my furnace (it's 12 degrees this morning!)
    my garage (so I don't have to scrape my windshield)
    the fact that I don't have to go anywhere today!

    Thank you for the inspiration...I now want to make a list each day of something that I'm thankful for and post it where I can see it all day long!



  8. My little girl who finishes my sentences.
    My little boy who falls asleep in the high chair.
    Anything with Sour Cream in it.
    My treadmill, even though I don't use it!
    Things that smell good!

    Post-it Notes
    Best spouse, ever!
    Friends-Cyber and IRL
    Princesses who are good Momdies.

  10. Hey Mindy, my sweet Neighbor!
    Well, your post today really made me think about this. Get caught up in the why me sometimes and I am so Thankful for Everything on your list! and so much more! Thanks for making me think..which is hard sometimes. HA.
    Also this is a long comment..Bear with me. I can't believe you have the Milk Jug Bottle!! Hope you make some Christmas Cheer and it makes you smile.
    And....It takes me awhile to Solder, oh Lord!! But would love for you to come by sometime and we could make some and play! I am in need of a new iron as stated but we could fumble around anyways!! So good to see your smiling face on my page and you make me happy everytime I hear from you.
    Many Blessings,
