My Gratitude List — February 17, 2014   

My linkup this week with Laurel Regan’s Gratitude List at Alphabet Salad
to share a few things (large and small) that I’m grateful for today in my life.

—Generous bloggers who share their expertise (e.g. in crocheting) with the rest of us.

—Sharing Valentine’s Day with my wonderful husband and a great dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant in our neighborhood.

—Receiving roses and candy from said wonderful husband.

—Kind neighbors who help shovel others’ walks and driveways.

—Music that brings me back to other times and places in my life.

—Sharing Sunday breakfast with my husband at local restaurants before church each week.

—Being able to occasionally write a blog post that touches or moves someone or lets them know they’re not alone.

—That the sun is out today and I can hear the dripping sound of melting outside my window.

—Once more participating in the Trifecta challenge and receiving generous comments from other participants.

—That the cold I thought I was getting last week never materialized.

—That in spite of the fact that I didn’t think I could find enough to put in it this week, I still managed to make up this list!


What are you grateful for this week? Please share at Laurel’s  linkup!



  1. I love how when we start looking for things to add to our lists, we find them! I think gratitude has a way of multiplying. :)

  2. Good lives with loving people always produce things to be grateful for. You are particularly blessed Elaine! Love the melting piece. :)

  3. And a lovely list it is, full of love and fun times! :)

  4. Ah, once we get in the flow, it's easy to find things to be grateful for, and then life gives you more of them :)
