Thank God for coffee. I wake up every morning gratefully anticipating a cup of coffee. I like my coffee bold with real half and half and a teaspoon of honey.

Thank God for spring. Today is a blustery day, threatening rain. My allergies are acting up, in response to the blooming trees and flowers. I’m okay with that. This year we are experiencing a long spring – arriving as it has about six weeks early – and lingering. Typically we have a short, cold, rainy spring followed by instant summer. Not this year – temps have typically been warmer than average, but still in the 60’s during the day and 40’s at night. I’m grateful for the rain, we’ve needed it.

Thank God for gardens. We planted our spring garden last week – brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and lettuce. We put little wire cages around everything except the lettuce – concerned that the predicted strong storms would harm the fragile plants. The lettuce is planted in between the other plants which should help to protect them.

Thank God for days off. I have a day off today. I’m not sure what I am going to do with it. I’m thinking about exercising and then going out to do something. Given the weather I will need to do indoor activities, so perhaps a museum?

But first, I am enjoying a cup of coffee. Thank God for coffee.

Thank God for all the blessings in my life. I have much to be grateful for.

For what are you grateful for this day?

    Like Hot Cup, I am grateful for heavy duty drugs–that keep my RA at bay (mostly). I am grateful for the rain that came today. I am grateful that you blogged about your gratitude.
