I am Grateful...

Today, a bunch of my blogging friends were challenged to list, in no particular order, 10 things we are most grateful for. After giving it a bit of thought here are some of mine (I am grateful for far more than 10 things, but these are the ones that immediately come to mind):

~ I am grateful for my various jobs; for the financial benefits it brings to my family, and for the skills I gain.
~ I am incredibly grateful for my family, both immediate and extended; for the love they have for me and for the prayers they offer on my behalf.
~ I am grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ and for the choices he made in His life.
~ I am grateful for artistic release; for the opportunities it gives me to create, the expression it allows me to share, and for the fun I always have!
~ I am grateful for my husband, Steve; for the {so far} never ending supply of love, and patience he has for me.
~ I am grateful to be an American; for the freedoms that I am able to enjoy, the choices I am able to make for myself, the careers I am able to pursue, and for the opportunities my citizenship grants me.
~ I am grateful for carbohydrates because they taste mighty tasty going into my tummy. (Even though they aren’t so good for my thighs, hips, and bum!)
~ I am grateful for my friends; for the inspiration they give me, the listening ear they provide when I need to vent, and for the incredible and loving advice they’re always willing to share.
~ I am grateful for the comforts of my home, a soft bed, and that I have a roof over my head.
~ I am grateful for other artists; for the time and energy they extend sharing their work, for the inspiration they give me, for the time and patience they have to create classes (or events) to share their talents with others, for the time they give teaching others, and for the sheer excitement and energy they always seem to have.
