Five Minute Friday - GRATEFUL

It's time for another 'Five Minute Friday' and I almost missed it this week 'Five Minute Friday' is where as, our hostess, and inspiration, The Gypsy Mama, puts it, we write "For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not."

Want to join us? Then be sure and visit The Gypsy Mama today! 

Now...for today's assignment...


I am grateful for so many things...

...people...the people that I love and the people that love husband, children, and grandchildren...parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins (those that are still here and those that have gone before us)...friends...good friends, great friends, best friends, friends that used to be friends, friends that aren't friends yet, but will be someday, internet friends, and friends who live far away, but are close in heart.

...places...the place that I am, the places I've been, the places that I will be, and places in the heart.

...things...a giggle, a smile, a knowing glance...the sound of thunder rolling across the prairie, of rain on a tin roof...the call of a loon on a northern lake and the sound of the water lapping at it's edge...the smell of garlic cooking in butter and of pine needles warmed by the sun...a full moon...a cup of hot tea...

These are just a few of the things that I'm grateful for in this life, but more than all these...I am grateful for God's love for me...for His Son, Jesus, and for the sacrifice that He made for me.




  1. So many things you mentioned put a smile on my face . . . all the people, of course and I too love the smell of garlic cooking in butter. Enjoyed your post.

  2. Thank you so much for stopping in for a visit and for leaving a comment, Andrea! I'm so glad that the Lord used my words to put a smile on your face. God's blessings upon you!
