The Lemonade Award

The Lemonade Award. I love awards.

Thank you Chicken Boys. Catch Randy and Mike the chicken Boys at http://chickenesque.blogspot.com/. It is always an honor when someone thinks your blog is worth noting with an award.

This award celebrates the ability to "see the blessings where they're not obvious, and making lemonade instead of complaining about sour lemons"!

I have to list a couple of things I am grateful for and then pass it on.

I am grateful that I have a good job - one in which I can excel and enjoy.

I am grateful that my mother is still here and let's me know it regularly. (just kidding - she is a sweet mom). I love my mom and Pop - don't know what I'll do when they are gone. Cry Cry Cry.

I am grateful that my children are both healthy. I am grateful for each grandchild and especially for Ethan. Ethan reminds us how precious life is and about fighting for life. You can read about him in earlier posts.

I am grateful that I still have all of my siblings.

I am just grateful.

I am passing this on to Denise at http://anenglishgirlrambles.blogspot.com/ and Bennie and Patsy at http://bennie-thesmiths.blogspot.com/.

Hope all of you have a great Monday.

That is so wonderful to take time to count your blessings! WE seem to always take things for granted until they are gone....
