I am going to have a GREAT day!

I have decided today to follow the lead of other bloggers today and post some gratitudes.

I am grateful for the day off yesterday. Kathy and I had a real nice relaxing day. I took her to the doctor, then we went for a nice lunch. I'm grateful for the extra money we had to be able to eat out.

I am grateful for thrift shops. In Barberton, Ohio, there's a store called New Destinations Thrift shop. Yesterday they were clearing out some winter merchandise. We were able to get coats for two of our grandchildren and a light jacket for Kathy for $1.00 apiece. For two dollars I got a tape series by motivational speaker Ed Foreman called "Happy, Healthy, and Terrific." This is a great edition to Automobile University.

Kathy's dad's health continues to improve. He's talking about taking us to a fish fry tomorrow. Maybe I will have him drive part of the way.

I am grateful for all you bloggers who continue to put out a fantastic product. If you are reading this and you blog, this means you.

I am grateful that my blood glucose level is going down. I'm also grateful for a family that cares enough to watch out for me.

Great catch on the motivational tapes! I got a Tony Robbins cassette-pack for a dollar as well at a different place. Aren't thrift stores great?

Nice! But I feel like complaining. ;)

A light jacket for $1.00? Wow! I have to start going to thrift shops.

These are great Cliff! I am celebrating right along with you! Thrift stores are the BEST, aren't they?! I've gotten some REAL finds at some local ones around here... and I always feel like that cat who swallowed the canary!

I love the "attitude of gratitude"... it does make a huge difference!
