Gratitude - grat-i-tude - noun - the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.  synonyms:  gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation, indebtedness

It seems fitting that for November I use this space to express my gratitude.  A lot of people do 30 Days of Thankful, gratitude journals or daily Facebook/Instagram posts.  I cannot remember to do anything every day so I will sum it all up here.

The basics - home, family, health.  Isn't this just a given when you think about gratitude?

My job - even though it isn't what I dreamed I thought I would be doing, it is perfect for me right now.  I love that I have flexibility, amazing managers and that I can do it all from my home.

The internet - First, because it allows me to work from anywhere.  Second, because I can look up anything at any time.  Knowledge is power and the internet provides so much knowledge.

My Rick - I give this man the devil.  I know I do.  He is patient, accepting, kind and generous.  I did good.

My dogs - Many of you think it is silly but they bring me so much joy.  When I am having a bad day, Clyde's smile can just turn it all around.

The youth group at Friendship Baptist Church - Harlyn has always been our little missionary.  It is great to see her faith grow and amazing to see God working with this enormous group of kids.

Ambush Baseball - Hudson's travel team makes for hectic schedules but it has been such a fun experience.  We have learned a lot about our family dynamic, working with others and money management.
