So... on another blog I read the author was talking about things we are grateful for... blessings... praises... and I really have so much to be grateful for. Most of it is very very predictable... :) Joe... duh... :) My friend Melissa (whom I hadn't seen for two years) came over the other night for dinner and it was just so great to get to visit with her. She took this picture and although I think I look TIRED... it's a picture I am happy with. :)

I think a very precious thing is the love of a dog by it's boy! Murphey is just a champ! She puts up with EVERYTHING from Joe. He pulls on her ears. Sticks his fingers in her mouth. Grabs her tail and rides her like a horsey! He also loves on her ad nauseum and wakes up signing DOG.

In return... Joe feeds her. Murph gets a little taste of everything Joe eats. Simple arrangement but it works for them. :) I am quite sure that Joe is one of Murphey's all time favorite people!

Melissa took to Joe right away and he (after a little bit of prodding) started flirting with her. They played peek aboo... they tickled and a bit of chase thrown in for good measure. I do admit though that she really wanted to take my dog home. Not a chance BUDDY! :)

And of course we had to show off WITH our vacuum and our monkey. Double fisting it. :)

I am also grateful for my husband. He is good to me, good to us. He gets up every morning and opens the office so that I can sleep in. Granted, I am up with Joe most nights at some point or another... but this arrangement works for us. :)

Baby Giggles... nuff said there.

the food network. I love it. It is a guilty pleasure and I watch it all weekend long and when Joey wakes up in the middle of the night, I watch it then too. I love new recipes... I love new ideas and I just plain love the Food Network. :)
A good book. I never seem to have enough time to read anymore... but I do love me a good book. :) Memories. I am so grateful for the wonderful memories I have made. Not many people can say that they have experienced all that I have and the memories I have locked into my little brain and my heart... man... the friends I have made, the people I have met. In a word... Amazing.

It is a blessing in itself to be grateful for all that we have in our lives and all we can do thanks to husbands, friends, family, and God. Thanks for sharing your blessings!
