Christina over at Kwisteena's Kwaziness tagged me for this. And today is a good day to talk about what I am grateful for as I feel I take advantage of these things often. This is what I am grateful for today, it usually changes daily, but these 3 things I wanted to share today. I am grateful for so many other things that I am not mentioning.

1. HEALTH- in the midst of reading about Kennedy, Chloe, Zack, Larkin, Lily and Mia, I have to be thankful for my families health. There are just so many who suffer daily and are always in my thoughts and prayers. I really don't know how some families deal with it. My friend Renee, Kennedy's mom is so strong and seeing all these kiddos around her relapse and go to heaven and I cannot imagine what goes through her head on a daily basis. So today I am thankful for my families health, although I know it can change at any minute, I am thankful for it right now.
And so as a family we pray together for everybody else's.
I also wanted to mention about my good friend Jenn...after being with her grandmother throughout her hospice care, she passed away this morning and I am thinking of her and her family during this time of loss. HUGS to you.

2. FRIENDS- I am thankful for friends. I see people in my family w/o them and I feel sorry for them that they have nobody to talk to endlessly with on the phone. That they do not have someone who they can share there sorrows and joys with. I appreciate all my friendships. Jamie, Jen, Colliene, DOWNSYN, Renee, Bethany, Kelly...I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! And Jamie a special note to you...JUST CALL ME BITCH! LOL! HUGS!

3. GRANDPARENTS- My grandparents left yesterday from Naples, FL to drive up to PA for the rest of the summer. They are 80 years old and still healthy and active and I love them so much. I miss them so much and wish they lived closer. But Grandad and Nana Jo will be here this weekend and I cannot wait to spend quality time with them and for them to get to know my children better. They have been a big part of my entire life and so I am GRATEFUL for them.

So as you know I must nominate 3 people, so I choose:

Kristin over at Love notes to my family , Ecki over at Opposite Kids and Jenna at Thriving on Love
