Today I am grateful for my DH. When he looks at me I feel like he sees the pretty young thing he married 23 years ago, instead of the tired overweight middle aged housewife I am. He is patient kind and understanding . he still can't read my mind when he needs to but he does listen to me. I love him.

I don't like cancer and frankly am tired of it hurting my family and friends. I guess I should say I am thankful for my health and that advances in medicine have advanced so much over the years with early detection and treatments. I just know that you can never turn your back on cancer and that it doesn't play by any set of rules. I am grateful for my SIL, she lost a son to brain cancer 6 years ago. She is facing this new hurdle in her life a lot more graceful and strong than I would. She has always been a source of light, strength and joy. I am grateful for the example and influence she is in my life.

I am grateful for sewing, that I know its something I can do and make beautiful things for people.
Day 13. I am grateful for the knowledge of Christ's redeeming love. The sacrifices He made so we may return to our Heavenly Father one day.

Yes he teased and terrorized me when we were kids (he did proclaim that I was his slave for life). But more important than that he protected me from the neighborhood and school bullies. He has always been able to make me laugh when life kicked me int he butt. and he has a matter of fact don't let life push you around , and no whining allowed attitude that has been a an example for me, I'm really grateful for my brother.

i can wow people with my ability to take a piece of string and turn it into a hat,shawl or mittens. Strangers will come up and talk to me to share a memory of their mother/grand mother knitting or how they would like to learn to knit,
It keeps me from snacking on things that aren't good for me and it helps me focus. Knitting brought into my life a group of friends I wouldn't of gained.
I'm really grateful for knitting

Now to see if I can keep this up throughout November. Consistency has not been my strength lately.
