ABC's Of Thankfulness

When I saw Marquis’s tweet yesterday announcing the one time link up called “ABC’s of Thankfulness”
I knew I had to jump on board.
With a rough week behind me and a bright horizon in front of me, I thought why not focus on the things I am thankful for.
These positive things bring joy to my life and sometimes I let the little things get the best of me.
Today’s link couldn’t have happened at a better time.
So from A to Z here are the things that shine in my life.

A-Air conditioning, I mean seriously I couldn’t imagine life without it. Our AC went out for three days and we all about murdered each other.

B-Baths! Soaking in a hot bubble bath after a long day is the way to relax! Also, bath time with Madison is really fun. She pretends she is doing laps at the Olympics, it’s quite comical

C-Cameras! I am a picture taking freak and I wouldn’t know what to do without my camera. Lord knows 80 years from now my memory bank won’t be so sharp.

D-Dairy Queen, a place we visit almost too much but hey when you have a sweet tooth what do you do?

E-Electricity! Now lights, no heat, no air no thank you! I appreciate the power of power!

F-Fruit and Family. I could eat fruit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I also love my Family and wouldn’t be where I am today without them.

G-Google. I am the Google queen. I use it to look up just about everything.

H-Hairspray. I don’t like to blow dry and straighten my hair so scrunching it happens 5 out of the 7 days.

I-Internet. We wouldn’t have blogs without having this nifty source.


J-Jesus. Praying daily for things I appreciate, asking for help and guidance and someone I can turn to in the time of need. I do believe everything happens for a reason and he has a plan for all of us.

K-Kindness. I treat others the way I want to be treated and believe everyone should do the same. Showing how much we care can really change a life.

L-Lip gloss! A girls best friend.

M-Mom and Madison. My life is so much better with these guys in it. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother, friend and daughter.

N-Netflix. It occupies a lot of my time but is a lot cheaper than renting movies and watching cable 24/7.

O-Olay Eye Makeup remover, I haven’t found a better one to take off my eye makeup without burning my eyes.

P-Prayer. I know a lot of people have prayed for me this last year and I appreciate each and every prayer that was sent to the man upstairs.

Q-Qdobas? Wow Q is a hard one! Nachos sound pretty good right about now!

R-Restrooms. Camping always sucks for me because using the bathroom outside isn’t all that fun. I am grateful for facilities of this nature.

S-Starbucks. My life saver and everyone else’s. We all know without my coffee how grouchy I can get.


T-Toilets. Again, going back to the restrooms, it just is a thing I wouldn’t want to live without.

U-Umbrellas. As much rain as we have had this year it was kind of hard not to leave the house without one.

V-Video cameras. I have captured some really great moments and cannot wait to share them with Madison and my grandkids one day.

W-Water. A bath, a shower, a drink or to water mother nature’s beatutiful plants and trees we simply cannot live without it. I value this the most of all.

X-X-rays, I guess without them we wouldn’t be able to find a lot of problems internally. Plus a word starting with X is really hard to come up with!

Y-Yard sales. I love people that set up yard sales! Going through other people’s junk and finding treasure makes my day!

Z-Catching Zzzzzzzz’s is the best. I say a nap should be mandatory during work hours.



  1. Thanks for linking up! I love your "O"

  2. Your gratitude list made me smile! X and Q are tough! I love sharing what I am grateful for. Thanks for following my blog on Bloglovin!
