2. A neighbor who plows my driveway cheaply.

3. The flea market in work (helps unload stuff and make a couple of $)

4. A note I found in Earl's toiletry kit this am that I had written to him and that he had kept for so long

Ginny -- I love your Top 5 -- especially the note that Earl has kept for so long -- that must truly warm your heart!

OK -- my 5 of the day?

1. The snow delay that gave me an extra two hours at home with my family this morning

2. Looking out my kitchen window at the beautiful winter scene landscaping our lawns and trees. I captured the moment with a photo

3. My co-workers making me laugh with our recap of last night's disastrous "Bachelorette" finale

4. The lunch seminar that provided YUMMY salads -- preventing me from having to buy lunch :wink:

5. The thought of leaving work in an hour and picking up my son to play in the snow together!!

I love this idea. Sometimes we take for granted all things to be thankful for, keeping the list each day will only remind us.

1. Being at home with my family today

2. Sesame Street (keeps my son occupied and is great for his little mind)

3. My parents and sister

4. My grandma who walked me thru making gravy (and it was great)

5. A warm home on such a cold day

2. My co-workers

3. My secretary (gotta seperate her out from my co-workers) who prays for my mom all the time, and also all of you, especially the Chapmans right now and who marched into my office and asked me today "so when are you due for your period" so she can track my fertility too :)

4. My 3 sisters (not biological)--you know who you are

5. Buddy the cute dog who my mom says is laying on the kitchen table right now in one of his many beds.

grateful for all of the scientists whose brains designed and engineered the IV plastics, tubes, and bags so that I would get just one stick and everything would go smoothly. I was really amazed at the level of technology and awed when I actually looked at the details.

for my old shi##y cat, Timmy Tom. The smartest and most engaging cat in the whole world.

for the sunshine this morning.

for the Cardinals singing their sweet springtime songs outside my window at 6 am....beautiful!
