Monday Moments of Gratitude!!

Full disclosure here...I started writing this post last Monday!  But I took a  blog break!  I'm back at it today because it's something I love doing and it's something I'm grateful to have in my life!

It's been quite some time since I've linked up for a Monday Moments of Gratitude with my blogger buddy Shaunacey.  Quite simply, since I've been back from my vacation, I've been in a slump!  I had a great time on the trip, that was soured after I came home to find that half the contents of my suitcase had been stolen!

I realize the things that were taken are exactly that "THINGS"!  And that I am home safe and sound, I wasn't there the following day when I hurricane rolled through.  But I think I'm allowed to be a little angry and feel violated!  So after a week that found me hours on the telephone with the airlines, and sorting of the rest of my stuff, I'm back to blogging!!

Because even though some of my things are forever lost, there are so many things to be grateful for every single day!

A wonderful trip with my two very bests in the world. Will recap the trip soon!!

A family that I spend hours and hours laughing with...because I know not every family is as lucky as we are! Last Sunday my Mom and Dad celebrated their 45 wedding anniversary.  Their life together and the life they give all of us is certainly something to be grateful for!

Summer days and nights filled with good friends, good food, good music and tons of  fun!

And last but not least, changes and new things on the horizon as I get ready to begin a new school year!

And God Bless sisters with pools in this hideous heat!  Whew...when will it break!?!

I'm doing a lot of reflection today! Come on over to The Blended Blog tomorrow to read my 10 years forward post...eeeekkkk!!  Why is this so hard for me!!??

What does this week find you grateful for!? Let me know in the comments below!

May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short!
