Something I'm thankful for

Today I thought I'd write about something I'm thankful for. There are really so many things, too many to list here in one day. So, it might turn out that I write something I'm thankful for fairly often. I hope that's ok with you. In fact, I hope it inspires you to write down something you're thankful for, too. :-)

Today, I'm thankful for coffee maker.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "What? Her coffee maker? What in the world would make you be thankful for that so much that you'd write it in a blog?!" And maybe you're right.

But I know every morning when I get up, I can make myself the best latte ever, without spending money or driving in my car to get it. It was a Christmas gift from my husband. (For background, he and I decided a loooong time ago to forgo giving each other gifts at Christmas.) He was dubious that I would use it. Boy was he wrong!! I think I've used it every single morning since I got it. Well, except for the 2 weeks I didn't have the filter and had to wait for it to come in the mail. (My husband made coffee while I was gone, and threw away the filter!)

I feel good knowing that I used to spend a pretty penny on Starbucks or Moxie Java or Tulley's (my all-time favorite!) I feel even better knowing I don't have to feel guilty about drinking coffee every day, when I'm still looking for work. (My husband doesn't say anything, but I know some days he's sensitive about money being spent. I would be.) I feel good giving my compost something it loves. (Coffee grounds, people!)

So, for today, I'm so thankful to have such a useful appliance taking up valuable space on my counter.

What are you thankful for?


  1. I am thankful for my digital picture frame on my desk. It, too, was a present from The Hubby, filled with my favorite shots of my darling kids. When things get crazy, when there isn't enough time in the day to get everything done and I am feeling harried, I can glance at the frame, never knowing what favorite shot I'll see, and remember why I do what I do each day.
    Thankful, too, for the opportunity to say I'm thankful! ;)
    Great post as always, Girlfriend.

  2. MP,
    Thanks so much for stopping by! I would imagine the digital frame really does brighten your day. We have one in our family room, and hubby loves to have it on. Of course, he took most of the photos and put them all on the frame, so he would like seeing them all. :-)

    I should have posted that I'm thankful for bloggy visitors like you, who respond and comment so thoughtfully. Thank you.
