It's about that time of year to start making those New Years Resolution lists that never get completed. My husband asked me just yesterday what would be on my list this year.

I told him, "Probably nothing. I never follow through after the first couple of weeks anyway."

Feeling guilty, I succumbed to thinking about starting a list - and five minutes later, promptly forgot all about it. Until a few minutes ago when I came across a post at Critical Mass. She's so inspiring!

So, here's mine:

1. To be thankful for something every day of the year.

The goal is to find five things you are thankful for each day of the year. I guess I'll start today. (This will give me something to write about if nothing else). :)

For today here's what I'm thankful for:

1. Bright blue skies

2. Diet Coke in the frig

3. Most of the laundry being finished - AND put away!

4. That there are other moms like me out there - somewhere...

5. That my husband loves me - he even said so this morning. Awwwww!

By the way, are we supposed to be serious doing this? Ok, ok....I'm really serious about the Diet Coke!

Blessings to all of you!


  1. Definitely, if anything,- Diet Coke in the fridge. Amen.

  2. I'm happy my family is healthy and my husband still has a job in light of the recession!
    Thanks for your inspiration of the day!

  3. Awesome New Years Resolution, it would be great to write them down somewhere and then look back at the end of the year!!!

  4. I think you can be thankful for whatever you want to be - serious or silly! Personally, I have been thankful for Tivo several times, and that is pretty frivolous!

    Tee hee! I am so tickled that you grabbed the Comment Your Balls Off button. It was my very first button. I am working on one for Critical Mass.
