August 30, 2011


Today I am reminded of how much I have.
I'm not talking about material possessions... I'm talking about how much i have to be thankful for. There are so many days I take for granted the comfort of my bed, the nurishment of my food, the comfort of health, the love of my family, and the laughs of my friends. Today, I am choosing to be thankful.

{ So Blessed... }

+ job security
+ food in my cabinets
+ a car to get me to and from work
+ a snuggly puppy
+ selfless BF
+ unconditionally loving family
+ a cancer- free dad
+ a cancer surviving mom
+ 2 of the best siblings in the world

...I have a lot to be thankful for!

What blessings do you take for granted, but make you smile today?

PS- Stay tuned! My recipe for spinach and cheese stuffed shells with meat sauce is coming this afternoon! :)


  1. Great post! Today, I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a grad student and learn. As much as I complain about the work at times, there are so many others throughout the world who don't have the opportunity to get an education.

  2. Great post! I love the quote!!! AND - thats truly wonderful about your dad being cancer-free & your mom surviving cancer ... I know how devestating cancer can be!!!! I'll keep them both in my thoughts & prayers :-)
