30 Days of Thanks -- Day 3

Thanks for cooler weather. See? I knew I was going to have trouble with the thanks giving! And I really am a grateful person. I'm just not an expressive grateful person! I have trouble being specific. I can talk in generalities all day long (and that is a problem in more ways than one). Surely I will get better if I practice every day!

Here is proof that I really have seen snow. This was the house I lived in from the time I was two or three years old until I went to fourth grade. Maybe one of these days, it will snow again like this in these here parts. I am always grateful when it is cool enough that we do not have to wear shorts on Christmas Day!


  1. Hah! I bet that closed you all down, too. We wouldn't even shovel for that amount.

  2. Patti I imagine you are right!

  3. Cooler weather makes me grateful for a warm house, a cup of tea and a blanket. Dearest one thinks I'm a bit crazy for thinking that way when we're out for a walk and I'm grateful and he's freezing. But I am. A warm house seems all the warmer when it's cold outside.

    Good to catch up on your blog. Gratitude has been a theme in my life lately although I didn't know about the 30 days of gratitude thingy. Sometimes I'm just amazed at the ability to be grateful.

  4. Hi Hope It's good to see you around here! I have enjoyed reading your stories of gratitude and growth.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
