Month of Gratitude 2013

It's that time again.  Bloggers and others are listing what they are grateful for each day of the month of November.

I've participated for the past two years. My 2011 gratitude list was very different than my struggle to find gratitude during my very difficult 2012. This year I'm in a very different, yet better, place and I'm not sure where my gratitude list will go.

I do know though that these past couple years have taught me, if nothing else, even in the darkest of times there is always something to be grateful for. Always.

November 1, 2013

1. Safely guiding my unsafe car to a place I can pull over and call for help.
2. Having car insurance that includes roadside assistance and towing.
3. A pink mohawk tow truck driver who wouldn't leave me alone on the side of the road.
4. Kids and a staff who were willing to drop what they were doing and come rescue me.
5. Long distance phone calls.

1. New friends who willingly hand over keys to their brand new car so that I'm not without transportation to work.
2. Old friends who save me money by fixing my car for me.

All the kids piled on my bed waiting their turn for one of momma's back massages.


  1. Thanksgiving is just 'round the corner, so it's great to see people listing down the things that they are grateful for. Though it's sad to hear that you don't have a car for the time being, it's nice to hear that you have wonderful people around you who would always lend the keys of their beloved cars so you can go to work with much ease. Best of luck, and I hope you'd have a car real soon!

  2. That's the spirit, Jennifer! Dwell on the blessings and be grateful for each. Glad to hear that you can rely on your car insurance just when you needed it the most. Stay positive always! How's your car, by the way?
