?#3 from My Sister’s Jar – Grateful List

List 10 things you are grateful for.  Write the first 10 that come to mind.

1.  My crock pot.  I got it for Christmas probably 15 years ago from Dad and Mom Crosby – but I have gone through use/non-use phases.  I’m in a use phase currently.  Dinners done by 9 a.m. and the house smells scrumptious.

2.  Air-conditioning.  Hello?  We live in the desert… in Phoenix… the only place hotter is hell.  The inventor of a/c has a statue in the capital building.  Right on!

3.  Elastic.  Think where we would be without it!?!  Everything we wear “under” includes it.  It has magical qualities… like making a size 24 body into an 18.

4.  Taco Bell.  Where else can you get all of your daily caloric needs met in one meal for only $3.69?  It’s quick… it’s cheap… they have diet Pepsi.. and it’s Mexican.  Aaaahhhhh.  (Dined there yesterday.)

5.  Books…. really good books that take me away from the here and now… to the 1850s in a covered wagon with 1/2 naked Indians visiting… baking biscuits over the campfire… sharing them with the Indians.

6. Sales Racks.  There is something satisfyingly triumphant about buying $82 pants for $12.27.  It’s almost like you cheated the big guys somehow…. sweet victory!

7.  Rick Coming Home Every Night.  I look forward to his arrival every day… starting at about 9:30 a.m.  I look to the clock every other hour ’til his keys plop on the entry table.

8.  Laughter.  It truly does make you feel good.  I love laughing and making others enjoy a belly laugh.  Jill is really good at those.

9.  This Journal w/52 prompts. I haven’t written freely in years.  No spell check.  No grammar boo-boos.  Just me and the pen and pages waiting for an adventure.

10. Flowers.  I simply love them.  Vibrant colors.  Soothing aromas.  I love fresh-cut flowers on my kitchen table.  It just sings “a Martha Stewart lives here”….  (which is a good thing.)

    I’m enjoying your blog entries. I’m an avid scrapbooker and paper crafter and the journals and jars are a wonderful idea! I’m going to “lift” this one and make several for coming birthdays this year to women who mean the world to me. I will probably make one for myself as well. I have a “Book of Me” that I’ve been working on. These will be prized possession of our children once we’re gone home to heaven. Love you!

    Love how your sense of humor surfaces through your writing. Also love the idea of your journal prompts. This is a great way to get writting. Elastic? I even work in the apparel industry and had not thought of that as a favorite. LOL

    Hi Jodi and Welcome. Congratulations on being the first online guest commenter who wasn’t coerced into visiting. And elastic, I’m so in awe of it, I looked up who invented it and think we should celebrate the man, Thomas Hancock. Blessings upon his descendants…. almost 200 years of them. ~Linda Ann
