Attitude of Gratitude. “AG” for Short.

Quiz:  which element does AG represent?

Okay, enough of that.  (but a quick shout out of thanks to Mr. Smith for helping me when it came to the pesky Periodic Table.  You were an awesome teacher)

Day #2 of AG.  Have you done any thinking about what you are grateful for?  Have you?  Besides the usual “family, home, cars, jobs, health, education, friends . . .” have you seriously thought about it?  It’s hard.  Here are my picks for today:

I am grateful for books.  I have a list of places that I would like to visit, but they are all in the ‘someday’ category and there are just times that I need to get away now!  Books help me do that.  I can choose to be whomever I want to be, go wherever I want to go, and be in any situation I want to be in.  Right now I am Sadie and Carter Kane in the YA book The Red Pyramid.  I love Rick Riordan.  Oh, another reason why I love books is because I can learn anything that I want to learn.  Sweet!  And have you noticed how many places you can get a book?  Buy it at a bookstore, check it out from the library, borrow from a friend, Kindle, Nook, so many ways to read.  Love. It.  Join me on  and we can talk books.

I am grateful for gas.  Be quiet.  Fuel.   Geez.  I live in my car, bus,suburban, so having a full tank of gas is warmth to my heart.  I don’t have time to go fill it up so my husband is always good to leave me with enough to get me where I need to go.  Gas fireplace warms my body, which seems to be freezing more often lately.  Brrrr.  Gas stove cooks me my comfort food that warms my belly.  Side-note: convection oven lets me bake 3 cakes at the same time for Cake Pops which warms my soul.  (try them, trust me)  Go Gas!

And last, for today, I am grateful for my mommy gut.  Again, not what it sounds like.  Not the gut I got by becoming a mommy to five wonderful kids, oh no, that will be gone – – – someday.  The 6th sense that I have when it comes to my children.   It has come in quite handy often in raising these future world leaders I have in my home.  Thank you mommy gut!
