    Hi all, sometimes life gets in the way and we forget some of the things we are very fortunate to have. Sometimes, especially at difficult times, it helps to write down the things we ARE thankful for.

    Today I am thankful for the obvious, my family and their health, but also the fact that I am taking a 3 day staycation. Yippeeeeee!!!!!

    Nice! Enjoy your staycation!!

    After a bit of an overwhelming start to my day, I'm thankful for our new puppy Lucy. Of course, I'm always thankful for family & friends, my hubby, a roof over our head with heating & cooling, food on our table, and with the recent events, I'm happy we don't live in the path of hurricanes.

    Most of all I am thankful for my family and friends. Each day I have added things to be thankful for and todays is that there is a chance of rain tomorrow after a long long time of none at all.

    This morning as I was (silently) whining about it being Monday & dreading go back to work, I remember a local girl, one of my FB friends who is a couple years younger than me, lost her husband last week to a massive heart attack & he's being laid to rest today. Way too young! They have 1 daughter who is a senior in high school. My day is suddenly amazing & very blessed! I have nothing to whine about!

    That is so very difficult. Prayers go up for this family.

    That leads me to something else I am thankful for. I am thankful that I survived a heart attack.

    It's sad that way too often it takes a some sort of event in our own life, or life of people we know well, to shake us to the core and make us rethink our values and reconsider our priorities. But you're absolutely right: we get so focused on the details of our daily life that we forget to remember the things that truly matter.

    About a month ago, I discussed the similar topic with a very dear friend of mine and at the end of our chat, she sent me a link to a short video. I strongly recommend for everyone to watch it.
