I’m very late for Deb’s Listmania this week – but on the basis that it’s better to be late than not to do it at all, here’s my gratitude list:
Life – it may seem trite to say how grateful I am to be alive, but it is true nonetheless. I’ve had at least three close brushes with death and I’ve learned the lesson: life is good and it’s to be grasped with both hands. I am so grateful to be alive.
My family – my immediate family of DH and DS, DS’s lovely girlfriend, my sister and her family, our Dad, DH’s family – and they’re all no further than a 2-hour drive away. Your family have to put up with you because you’re related to them – thank goodness for that!
DH – we’ve been together for nearly 29 years (I think we should do something special next year, for our 30th anniversary). I am grateful to be in a long-standing partnership (although it did freak me out when I realised we have been together for more than half my life!).
There are many, many other things I am grateful for, but those are the ‘big 5’. What tops your list?
