Belated Gratitude: In Completely Random Order

I am such an I Meant To type of person. The list of these meant tos (no, not Mentos) is way too long. Maybe my 41st year will be the year I do better with that. I mean to.

Of course I meant to do more gratitude posts during the month of Thankfulness (although thankfulness is not regulated to only one month). But I didn't. So now am writing a stream of consciousness type post to document all the many things of which I am thankful, big and small, that just pop into my head in the next few minutes, in no particular order. Because random is fun.

I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for coffee. I am thankful for Jesus. I am thankful for my friends ( in real-life and virtual). I am thankful for books. I am thankful for the Bible. I am thankful for chocolate. I am thankful for Spanx. I am thankful for Tex-Mex. I am thankful for the things my body can do even when I don't always treat it kindly. I am thankful for my home. I am thankful for music. I am thankful for Netflix. I am thankful for the library. I am thankful for Starbucks. I am thankful for MAC makeup. I am thankful for my camera(s). I am thankful for blogging. I am thankful for flip-flops. I am thankful for pedicures. I am thankful for my washing machine and dryer. I am thankful for Bare Minerals. I am thankful for liquid soap. I am thankful for my running shoes. I am thankful to live in the United States of America. I am thankful for Texas. I am thankful for a good bra (and sport bra). I am thankful for TV. I am thankful for my vacuum. I am thankful for toilet paper. I am thankful for TarJay. I am thankful for good smelling candles. I am thankful for ice cream. I am thankful for our dog and two cats. I am thankful for M&Ms. I am thankful I learned to knit. I am thankful for my flat iron. I am thankful for Pilot precise extra fine-point gel pens. I am thankful for the many ways available to express my creativity. And I am thankful for The Muppets. Enjoy!

Even if you are a Meant To person like me, it's not too late to jot down a list of the many random things you are thankful for.

  1. I got a kick out of your gratitude list and share many of the same things on mine.

    I don't recall ever seeing this muppet version of that song before, though I was a die-hard muppet fan as a kid. I love Beeker!

  3. Oh, I forgot, I am also thankful for my jeans, preferably stretched out after a couple of wearings.
