The Bigger Things

Last Monday's post was about the little things for which I am grateful. This week, I'm going to tackle the bigger things.

Some of the big things are obvious, but they are worthy of mention. There are a few big things without which I would be a lost soul for certain.

They say that being thankful every day will make a huge, positive difference in our lives.

Without further ado---here's my list of the big things:
  1. First and foremost, I'm thankful for someone with whom I reconnected with a few years ago. This person makes such a wonderful difference in my life every single day.
  2. My friends at school. I love these people. They are supportive, encouraging, uplifting, funny as hell, sharing, caring, loving, and I would hate going to work every day if they were not there. 
  3. Daughters. Because, even when they are on my last nerve, they're still the best kids ever.
  4. My Tucker. 
  5. A roof over my head that keeps me cool when it's hot out and warm when it's cold out. The running water and electricity are quite nice too.
  6. Every day that I am still alive. 
  7. My education. I have two bachelor degrees and a masters degree and I'm darn proud of them. Even if I don't get paid squat at my job. 
  8. My job. I hate working, but I love my job. 
  9. A car. As soon as I get one. Not having one of your own makes you truly appreciated them.
  10. Time. 
  11. Family traditions.
  12. My health.
  13. The five senses and the fact that they all work just fine. 
  14. Long weekends. In the mountains. 
  15. Love. 
  16. The seasons. Especially fall and winter. 
  17. Food to eat, spring water to drink.
  18. The healing power of music. And, the music itself. 
  19. Kind hearts.
  20. All my blessings.
Your turn! What are some of you the big things for which y'all are grateful?


  1. You named a lot of mine, too. That roof over my head; people to love and to be loved back; food and water; job; car; long weekends (wherever); retirement in 18 months or so (!!!)..... I am thankful for so much each and every day.

    1. There are so many things for which we can all be thankful. I fear I take a lot of them for granted on a daily basis. But I'm trying to fix that. :)

  2. Great list!! I'm always thankful for my son and granddaughters and health and happiness. Those are BIG!

    1. Yes they are! How are those sweet granddaughters doing? Will you be able to see them over the holidays at all?

  3. I so agree with this list, I am so grateful for my wonderful family even if at times they drive me batty

    1. And they sure can drive us batty, can't they? LOL

  4. It is good to see the ways we are blessed.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
