Each year my sister adds to her list (over 700 items so far!) of what she is thankful/grateful for. And each year I determine to start posting mine on my blog and add to my handwritten list. Since having Sweet Pea almost 17 weeks ago, I have realized that computer time, let alone me time, is next to impossible to achieve. Yet I am going to use some of her precious nap time to list some of what I am thankful for, as it is a great reminder to not take for granted these blessings from God. And not all are profound; I have listed whatever things/items I am thankful to have in my life.
