I am grateful for this cozy tiny home I live in. I sleep so well and comfy in my nest-like bed, and it stays plenty warm in here with a little help from my space heater. This really is ideal, and a very affordable way to live.
I am thankful for my life and the loved ones that surround me. When I think that things are the pits, I just need to look around to know how truly blessed that I am. This snaps me out of my "pity party" pretty quickly!
Jilly: That sounds awesome - thanks for sharing with us. Can we come visit(lol).
You are so right Connie.
With Sylvester and our 2 doggies being away while he visited his family, I had to rely on my Bella Family yesterday and today for some much needed support through some MAJOR hurt. They will be back tonight at 7pm EST - Yippeee! Nothing like having my LOVING family back. LOL, after 1 night (Friday) of alone time - I was missing them...
Words can NEVER thank MY Bella Family members for all the PMs they sent my way & LOVING posts.
Guys, you are the BEST - Angela is back and smiling = GRATEFUL!!!!

I am grateful that I was able to spend another blessed holiday with my parents, my sister and our kids. Every day is a blessing and as we live to see another year, each year becomes a blessing as well.
Yes Dianne, having BOTH parents still alive is indeed a "blessing" and so glad you made time to be with them. Too many times we get so busy and forget to make time for our loved ones and live in regret if they die before we get to see them. This is something I have learn't from my boyfriend, in spite of a lot of his family hurting him - he goes back for more(lol). God is still teaching me to be able to do this.

So sorry I missed this thread yesterday. I was with family. Thanks for the reminder folks, I am grateful for family.
Yesterday, we were 8 adults and 7 children, in a 3 level townhome, giggling, dancing and seriously chatting, until more than half the adults had fallen asleep (1am); because we had done the same thing Xmas eve (4am).
We have the best time on holidays and vacations. Looking forward to New Year's Day.
Actually did not have the picture-perfect holiday like we typically enjoy. It was a hard day and I was in the ER. But thanks for asking this question to remind myself that I am blessed with my very loving children and husband.
