I'm thankful for all my blogging buddies that visit me each week. You make me smile.

I'm thankful for my husband who also makes me smile. It's wonderful to have a life partner that is fun to be with and you just compliment each other.

I'm thankful that we can enjoy our love of boating year around. Even when it's cold and storming, we enjoy our boat.

I'm thankful we are comfortable with our lives. We have enough money and plenty of food to eat. Because of that we help others have a better life.

I'm thankful I can go where I want when I want. There are many places on earth that this is not so. To be free to choose is a wonderful thing.

I'm thankful my husband doesn't dictate what I will do, say or how I will act. He lets me be me and I let him be him.

Most of all I'm thankful hubby and I are healthy. We see so much sickness and suffering. It breaks our hearts.

What are you most thankful for this week?


  1. You are blessed, for sure! I'm thankful my sister is home from the hospital and feeling better. I'm also thankful I finally found a color I like for my living room tables. I'm got one painted and waxed but I will have to wait until tomorrow to do more painting as today is a road trip!

    Have a perfectly lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  2. I'm thankful that Seymour didn't knock up Alcatraz when he was there...

  3. First, Skunkfeathers is hysterical
    We are thankful for this blog which makes me laugh every morning. And the very best thing to be thankful for is your health and I am so thankful for my health for sure. Take care.

  4. I'm in awe that the storms on the boats don't bother you!!

    Your list is awesome. :)

    I am thankful for my hubby, who treats me like a queen even when I don't deserve it.
    I am thankful for the full day of rain we got yesterday, as the farmers and my flowers needed it so bad.

  8. I'm thankful I'm able to come here each day. :-f

  9. And I am thankful for seeing this lovely post ;-)

  10. I am thankdful for my blog buddies and my Facebook friends,and most of all I'm thankful for knowing what to do if my Celestine ever has a extremely low blood sugar reading like she did last night at 1:30AM.I posted about it on my FB page.
    :-h :)

  11. wonderful words Sandee....We are fortunate like you in all ways.
    Have a great day!

  12. Love your list of many wonderful things to be thankful for! I, too, am thankful for blog friends, my husband making me laugh, my kitties, and my dad coming here from KS this week so hubby and I can take a trip knowing the kitties are safe!

    Enjoy your Sadieday! Smooches to Little Bit!

  13. I think part of being blessed is to realize that you are blessed. I loved it today. sandie

  14. We are sistas from another mother...thankful for exactly those same things. Blessed. We are.

    Big hugs, honey...

  15. I'm so thankful that God has given me the life I have and the people who love me.

  16. I'm thankful I've never experienced a devastating earthquake, flood, fire or hurricane. I know I would not handle it well!

    It's nice to hear of a couple who has a good marriage--so many are on the verge of divorce. I think you hit the key--let each other be themselves and don't try to change the other person.

  17. Right now, i'm just thankful to be. There's lots that needs fixing, but there's lots that doesn't, and i'm going to focus on just enjoying what is working.

  18. Sometimes we don't realize our blessings until it too late. My late wife, was the love of my life and my greatest blessing.

  19. :) youre the blessing hun..I am sooooo thankful for your caring and sweetness and hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!! xoxoxoxox

  20. Sandee, I couldn't have written a better gratitude list than yours, and I agree with all of it except I'd change:
    husband to wife,
    boating to birding,
    he/him to she/her, and
    hubby to wifey.
    Well, actually I would probably never use the word wifey. (She packs a gun you know.) ;-)

    I'm grateful for you, Sandee! You bring a lot of joy and wisdom to many lives!

  21. You certainly have a lot to be thankful for Sandee! I am thankful for wonderful family and friends who give me a lot of support. Enjoy the rest of your day Sandee.

  22. Thank you for reminding us all to take a moment and be just simply thankful! :D

  23. It never hurts to do a gratitude list because most of the time it put things in perspective.

  24. Sometimes we take things for granted but this has made me think.. I have a wonderful life :) xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  25. Family, friends (both on and off line) and health. Great post.

  26. Those are great things to be thankful for. Too many take for granted what they have and how lucky they are.
