Although I may complain from time to time, I have many things to be thankful for.  Health, job, house, car, food, freedom, family, friends, and the list goes on.  I have a comfortable home, good food, family, good friends, cancer free, good health care, job that I like, enough money to live on.

Besides many of the reasons already mentioned, I'm thankful for all you good, positive, sometimes hilarious, thought-provoking, always generally encouraging people of the Internet.... like YOU.

I am thankful for my DH!  I don't know what I would do without him.  He is my everything!!!  And I am thankful for our warm, comfortable little home.  We are far from being well off, but we have what we need. I am thankful that I am getting ready to retire.  It's been a long, hard journey.  It's been good and bad and I will be sad in a way, but I am looking forward to it!  


I am grateful for my freedom as a citizen of the U.S. I am thankful for all of the veterans who gave their life to protect our freedom and for the military personnel who protect our freedom every day. I am thankful for all the police, fireman, and others in these types of positions who work hard every day and put their lives on the line for all of us!!

I am thankful for a calm year when I could just enjoy the seasons.  I am thankful to have the cancers in remission, other health matters drugged into submission and the many family deaths only now good memories.  It was a good one.

I'm thankful that my small family is still with me and healthy. 


I'm thankful for:


Grayson and Presto, the birds that share my life and bring me joy on a daily basis


My home, my sanctuary Woman Happy, a roof over my head


Electricity, heat and access to fresh water


Clothes for my back, shoes for my feet


A warm bed to lay my body down on at the end of the day


The ability to jump in my car and just go.  I remember what it was like to wait for the bus.


Food in the fridge, food in the cupboards - I have the luxury to look in either and say, hmmm I don't want that when there are many who are hungry and wish they had something to eat.


Yesterday, my youngest bird Presto took a bath.  I hold her little tub/dish on my lap and she bathes with absolute abandon.  I end up wet and have to change my clothes afterwards.  As I was walking down the hall to grab a clean top and yoga pants, I thought to myself - how fortunate am I that I have such easy access to clean clothing.  


I'm not trying to be preachy - I sincerely think about these things on a daily basis.  


I'm also thankful for the QVC forum posters that I've met through the years.  


There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise
