2011 Gratitude Challenge - November 15th




Man, I missed yesterday's Gratitude Challenge. I have tried so hard not to miss a day. Oh well, what can you do right?

I'll tell you something from yesterday that I was very grateful for.

My husband has a signed Kevin Johnson Phoenix Suns jersey, and in all of our 15 years of being married I have never washed this.....Yep, you can see where I am going can't you....Yep, I accidentally washed it. Some of the signature was worn away. I thought he would be so upset. He wasn't. He said it wasn't that important. I was so thankful that he didn't get upset.

Today I am thankful for all of the things we have that make life easier. I am thankful for the simple things like a washer and dryer, a refrigerator, an oven, etc... Just think how life would be different without those things.

I know it is kind of a frivolous thing to be thankful for, but these are things that really do make life easier. Can you imagine not being able to vacuum, or wash your sheets in a moments notice? I know we could do it, but I am thankful that we don't have to. lol

These are great things to be thankful for. I kinda burnt my vacuum belt the other night & I didn't have another one. We were having company the next day and vacuums don't work like they are suppose to without a belt.

He He Rodna. I've washed a signature shirt Griffin got at a monster truck show. All of the signatures are in Sharpie but they are starting to fade. He doesn't care. Glad your hubby didn't get too mad. And I've really been wanting to be Amish lately. I could so do without a washer and dryer (as long as I didn't have to do the clothes by hand). I really need a magic fairy to be thankful for.

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
