I know the upcoming holiday is Easter and not Thanksgiving, but thinking about the sacrifice Jesus made for us all makes very thankful for my blessings.

Its what Easter is all about.

*my hardworking husband
I don't know how he does that all that does. say an extra prayer for him today, he's working on an important project.

*the beautiful mountains in my areaThis morning, on my drive to work, the mountains were covered in snow.

*familyI have great parents, a wonderful sister & BIL, and of course the princess and little man.

*my in-lawsThey love me as if I was their own - I couldn't ask for better in-laws.

*my job/benefitsThe health insurance is incredibly, not to mention free use of the gym and getting paid to work out!

*good healthI have my share of complaints, but I'm blessed that they are nothing major.

*a love of readingI started another book last night...and am half way through it already. I think I might be addicted.

*the ability to accomplish life long goalsNot only have I completed my bucket list, I've hiked the tallest mountains...well in this area at least.

Here's a view from the top of Mt. LeConte - 3rd highest peak in the state of Tennessee. Never mind the bulky layers, it was October and cold! (Random fact - My parents and I hiked Mt. LeConte the day after Mr. Right and I met for the first time.)


  1. Very cool. Superman and I hiked up the tallest point in Louisiana -- it was 500-something feet, LOL (but sadly true).

  2. That's a great list of thankful things! Beautiful picture too!

  3. Great list. It's nice to write it out sometimes to really remember how blessed we are.

  4. Great list. And yes, Easter is a perfect time to be thankful.

  5. MAN Tennessee is gorgeous. Love your list...makes me want to make my own :)

  6. Thanks so much for the encouragement on my weight loss. I enjoyed reading all of the things you are thankful for and you are right - Easter is a great time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, including salvation. Happy Easter!

  7. Great list! You really are blessed and have an amazing family... lots to be thankful for. :)

  8. What a great list of things you are thankful for & a good week to focus on them!
