Spring Break and Blessings...

It is spring break for Demi and I both from school and work.  It is so nice to have some down time.  I am finishing a book called PathWay to Purpose for women by Katie Brazelton while Demi is over at her best friends house today. 

Today, this warm and spring Tuesday I am thankful for so much!
1.  Thankful for the gift of life
2.  Thankful for my daughter, Demi and her fun and loving spirit.
3.  Thankful for my faith, family and friends.
4.  Thankful for good books and blogs.  (Love this one I happened upon today http://www.tracywburgos.typepad.com/)
5.   Thankful for our good health (getting my teeth cleaned tomorrow and am grateful for a BIL that is a dentist and then off to have an irregular mole removed, again grateful for free doctor care too since I have no insurance.  Praying for a clean bill of health being that I have had skin cancer and a scare 5 years ago)
6.  Thankful for being able to think, dream, have visions and goals to live by each day.
7.  Thankful for a roof over our heads after loosing our home.
8.  Thankful for our freedom and for those who are in the Armed Services so that we can make choices and live freely everyday.
9.  Thankful for my work that I am passionate about and those who have opened these doors for me.
10. Thankful that I am able to get Demi back into what she loves and that I am able to do some things for her lately.
11. Thankful for those who blog and for time to read and share.
12. Thankful for great teachers who are still passionate about what they do everyday.
13. Thankful for Cheyenne and her unconditional love.
14. Thankful for scrapbooking and the joy that comes from documenting our lives.
15. Thankful for community service and those who give of their time.  Love Demi being a part of her Girl Scout troop and the good they are participating in this spring.
16,  Thankful for love, compassion and grace/forgiveness.
17,. Thankful for longer days to enjoy outside with my family.
18.  Thankful for SONshine.
19.  Thankful for technology, skype, internet, cell phones.
20.  Thankful for the opportunities to share God's love and to love our neighbors and to make a small difference with random acts of love and kindenss!!

It is good to be back with a blog entry and it is my hope that somehow I can find or make a way to get some scrapping done.  Even thinking that I may make a new Grateful Journal/Cards to put on
 4x6 cards to late put into a photo album kind of like the 365 days scrapbook I made back in '09. 

Here is to you having lots to be thankful for and to finding joy in the simple things of your life.  Remember, it is ordinary people doing extraordinary things everyday to make this world a better and happier place using their gifts to bring HOPE to others in need.  What can you do today?
