Gratitude Saturday #3 of 2020


Happy Saturday!! 
Today I woke up with an humongous headache and ice everywhere outside. We didn't get the snow they were calling for but we got a nice layer of ice. It is supposed to turn to rain later today but it is a mess out there right now- although it is also kind of beautiful. The boys are supposed to have basketball games today but they have already cancelled the first 2 game blocks today so we shall see. They cancel in 2 hour blocks. I have a lot of things on my to-do list today so I would be perfectly okay if it were a stay at home day. :) 

In case you were new here or were wondering what "Gratitude Saturday" was all about: every Saturday I am going to come back here to list those things for which I am grateful. In today's day and age an attitude of gratitude is one way to fight against the feelings of hopelessness when you are watching news reports or reading about the barrage of horrible things going on in the world.  

So this week I am grateful for:: 
  • People who step up to coach youth in sports. Jacob and Ben have some good coaches this year and for that I am grateful.
  • That we didn't lose power last weekend when the winds came through. 
  • Bacon.
  • A good night's sleep.
  • Spending time with my niece and nephew.
  • Relatively healthy kids.
  • A hubby who says he is sorry by bringing me a rose and a Starbucks frappuchino.

  • Caffeine. 
  • Gift cards received in the mail.
  • Dinner out with friends.
  • A good frozen margarita. 

What are you thankful for today? 


  1. That's a nice list of things to be grateful for. Coaches in youth sports are under valued-same goes for team parents scout troop leaders, Sunday school teachers. I know some people really have no time to volunteer, but it is a lot to add to an already full family plate. .

  2. Love your thankful list, my friend.
    I am thankful for my afternoon cup of vanilla coffee, the health of my family, and my soft warm bed.
