Time To Dog Paddle

Right now I am almost half empty.  Those of you that know me know that I always try to see things as half full.  People and things are so full of static right now in my world.  So today I am going to focus on the little things in my life that make things so sweet. 

1.   Sparkly toe nail polish
2.   The hope of rain
3.   Text messaging
4.   Facebook
5.   Good friends that are also frazzled and still moving forward

6.   Starbucks green tea iced tea with 2 equals.  We no longer have a starbucks so I only get this every few months.
7.   Fat free half and half
8.   The postman
8.   Online ordering
9.   Chinese food
10.  Friend's art
11.  Clean fresh panties...tis a luxury
13.   Corgis
14.   sandals
15.   black stretchy pants from Wmart
16.   Snuggles from kittys
17.  A mother's day card with the boys handwriting.  ~grins~
18.   Supplies for a zombie apocalypse
19.   Laughter
20.   Deodorant
21.    Naps
22.   Coupons, Groupons and good deals

23.   These little feet

So tell me....what small thing are you thankful for today?


  1. I am thankful that you often remind me of the need to be grateful when I most need to be reminded.

  2. I am thankful that I can be home with my sick Henry and not have to worry about 'work'.

    I am thankful that Henry must be feeling better as I type this b/c I can here he and John upstairs ... sounding like a hear of elephants stomping around ~ahem~

  3. I'm thankful for leftovers in the fridge so I don't have to cook tonight. =)

  6. Glad you reminded me of clean panties. Sometimes you slip on this as you grow older.....

    I am thankful for a warm puppy against my back when I sleep!

  7. I am thankful for you.

  8. Sorry to hear that your cup is half-full right now.

    I was just thinking this morning how fat-free half 'n' half is one of the greatest things ever and it makes every cup of coffee or tea delicious.

    I'm thankful that the doc moved me into a "shoe" thing instead of the splint I've been in the past three weeks. It's a big step forward.

  9. i am thankful I have a 3 day weekend coming up that I have a great husband and kid. I have a mostly boring life but have been able to see a few exciting things in my time.

  10. love the little feet :)

  27. Today I am thankful for you.
    I will try and go into the world and not cry in public, but here at the computer, .....I am thankful that I am in a house with a roof, plumbing and have food. I am thankful that I can drive if I need to, and have a car to do so. I am so blessed but very lonely. It's hard to look for friends when you are weeping.
    all love,
