2009's Project Grateful.

Last year I played along with my WASSIMA peeps and posted 20 things I am grateful for, daily, for the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Jilliene nudged me again tonight to play along...and so here we go.

In no particular order....20 things I am grateful for this moment:
  1. My ART TRIBE, and nudges and encouragement from them, like Jilliene's invite tonight : )

  2. Planning Thanksgiving dinner with the Gilmans/Cohens - our very favorite holiday. Cannot wait for that spiced turkey!

  3. That my nieces all love college.

  4. For Facebook, email, and texting, which helps us all stay in touch when we can't be together.

  5. That my sisters, in addition to being great sisters, are such good moms and aunts.

  6. Mikayla, who is the best PLANNER and found the PERFECT Christmas PJs for us this year at Old Navy!
  7. Plans with friends (like painting ornaments and making chocolate covered preztels at Jan's! Thanks, Jan, we can't wait for Saturday!)

  8. BFFs at work who always listen, provide a boost when I need it, and always, always make me LAUGH.

  9. The company I work for promotes and supports so many programs for giving back to our communities, and that I get to participate on some of the planning teams.

  10. People in power who DON'T "kiss up and kick down."

  11. That Rob never, ever, complains about my crafting/creative/sewing piles.
  12. RAKs and cards in the mail - I love snail mail!

  13. My weighted pin cushion and scrap bag combo next to my sewing machine! Best $4.99 I ever spent.

  14. Endless 40% off coupons at Michael's, AC Moore and JoAnn Fabrics!

  15. The drive-thru at Starbucks when it is raining. : )

  16. Whoever invented the little green-plastic-coffee-cup-hole-plug-sticks at Starbucks, so I don't have to curse out whoever invented the MOUNTAIN HIGH speed bumps in our parking lot at work! (seriously)

  17. TV's GLEE.

  18. iTunes

  19. GOOGLE LOGOS that make me smile, especially the Sesame Street ones this week. (Love that they catalogue the logos....why does that make me so happy?)

  20. Jeans passes at work!

Sooz! Yaeh! what an awesome list- so full of generosity to others and joy in your life. I just love that "glee" has been on almost everyone's list. We are a tribe!
