~ Wednesday Gratitude ~

I am linking up with Heidi again today to count my many blessings!  I am focusing on all the good in my life right now ~ good health, my special family, dear friends, heartfelt conversations, laughter, a few tears, healthy food, clean water, my bed, hot showers, iced tea, adding flowers to my patio, wonderful music and books, safety, bright sunshine in blue skies and choices that we have daily.  Can you even imagine living in a place that these creature comforts are not available?  My prayers are with those in the flooded areas and for a swift clean-up of our coastal waters.  I haven't added pictures this week ~ I think our blessings come in all forms and colors so please use your imagination when thinking of yours!  :-)

Beautiful post, Pat. I am grateful for so many of the same things. We are very much alike.

I think I'll have mine in turquoise and coral tonight. Your list is lovely and so very true. There are always so many people suffering...we do need to remember how lucky we are.

Dear Pat,
I count my many blessings every day, and most of the time it is the simple things that I am most thankful for. Running water and electricity, heat, a full pantry and fridge - those seem small at times but they are so important and so easily taken for granted. I am blessed to live in a particularly lovely part of the country, and I say thanks for that every day, too. Especially right now, with the spring blossoms all around me.
Today the colors of my imagination are white and spring apple green.
Thank you for another touching post!
Heidi - Heart and Home

I loved that post. I can't believe what is going on in the Gulf and all the flooding in the south. That is horrible.
I am so grateful for everything that I have.
