Sleeping with Bread

I thought today I would list those things that over the past week I have thought about how fortunate I am to be able to live in a country that provides me with the things that in so many countries are not seen as a basic need or freedom.

  • I am thankful that I have electricity and running water.

  • I am thankful to have air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter.

  • I am thankful for having a job.

  • I am thankful to have the ability to walk into a grocery store and find anything I could possible want or need.

  • I am thankful for the ability to travel freely across the United States of America.

  • I am thankful for the complete religious, social and political freedom that I have living in this country.


  1. I like that!

    We all need to appreciate stuff like that.

  2. fortunate we are to have what we have.

    Thank you for the reminder.

  3. "I am thankful for having a job." I have to remind myself of this often, lately, it seems - but yes, yes I am. We are blessed above measure.

  4. Yeppers and in this day and age,, ifn' you have a job,, better keep what ya have,, cause otherwise the other side of the coin is no so pretty...

    Take care love, hope you have a good day!
