Day Twenty-one What song are you grateful for? So many songs. I love all kinds of music so this is hard. I love the Gaither Vocal Band, especially when they sing with Mark Lowry. I love Reba McIntire (I know all my friends are thinking that is bad). Honestly, when I am in a dark place I can sing a long with Reba and it all looks better. My favorite current song is Breath. Listen to the words of that song on you tube. It describes my life perfectly. Sometimes in the middle of the craziness I forgot that I can set at his feet and just breath. This summer I went away with other moms and this was our song. Oh, how I needed that time. So now I can listen to this song and remember that time. Something happened during that get away. I realized that I can still breath. I can still laugh and I am still a person. Not just a mom and wife.

Day Twenty Who are you grateful for? I want to say that I am grateful for our civic workers, our police, fireman and military. I am grateful for the men who work in our church. I am grateful for my husband who has worked so hard to give us everything we have. It does not matter if he is tired or sore he just keeps working. He gives the same dedication as a soldier and I am so grateful for that. I look up to him regularly. I am grateful for the Sunday school teachers we had when we lived in Kentucky. There marriage gave us something to look at. They were honest about how life is. I could still call them today for advice.

Day Nineteen: What touch are you grateful for? I am grateful for our dogs and the way they reach out and touch you. We have two rescue dogs that came from a amazing rescues. We do not know what happened to them before they came to the rescue. So when they connect with us I feel honored. I feel safe when my dogs are around. If I go upstairs they follow me. They only go into the basement unless I am in the basement. I love how they have touched us not only physically but they have touched our hearts.

Day Eighteen: What piece of art are you grateful for? I am grateful for so much art. For the art my children give me. A downside to homeschooling is that we do not have all those cute little craft projects coming home. No cute little mothers day poems. So anytime I get something my kids make, I am thrilled. I also am grateful for art work from friends. I have a milk can that a friend painted and it is precious to me. I have a friendship picture that a friend made. Anything homemade is special to me.

Day seventeen: What knowledge are you grateful for? I know weird things. Things like chickens and ducks are not normally together because ducks have a penis and chickens do not. Until this post I thought bubble wrap was used for wallpaper. I do not even know where I learned this but when I looked it up to write this post I realized that is not true. I am sad that I have told people this and it is not true. Hmm, what other knowledge do I have? I know how to make goats milk soap and how to bake. For that I am grateful. I love to bake for others and for my family. I am glad that my daughter is allowing me to teach her to bake.
