The A to Z's of Being 63 -- T is for Thankful


T is for Thankful

We can be thankful at any age, but today I'm thankful for  (not in any kind of order - some big, some small):

1. our cat, Harvey

2. our granddaughters

3. sunshine and blue skies and blooming flowers

4. our church

5. my husband, Mark, and our kids and their spouses plus our siblings/spouses and Mark's momma

6. our home

7. great neighbors in a great neighborhood

8. a bed to sleep in at night

9. clean drinking water

10. a pantry, fridge, and freezer full of food

11. a dining room table where we can host friends and family

12. the possibility of getting a Wolf stove (really! we are waiting for them to come and measure and see if it is even a possibility)

13. some of the best friends you could ever imagine

14. good health

15. the ability and means to travel some

16. books - both kindle and actual paper

17. fresh fruit that is in season - especially strawberries and the hope of good watermelon

18. a wonderful job that is meaningful PLUS wonderful people with whom I work

19. a big front porch and a screen porch

20. a million shades of green - here in Alabama, everything is coming into its glory and when you look at a hillside covered in trees, you truly can't count the number of shades of green!

If you were to make a list of things you are thankful for, what are a few that would be on your list?


  1. Wonderful list, Lisa! I can totally understand your #18 -- I was blessed to experience that, not once, but twice. I'm a little envious (light green) of your #15. Again, I was blessed -- from my childhood to early 40's -- to travel extensively. Not so nowadays that we're on fixed incomes and Tom's health. Go while you still can!

  2. Great list of things to be thankful for though I’m not sure what a Wolf stove is.

    1. Wolf is a brand . . . and it has red knobs! I've always called it the "red knob stove."
