you are awesome!(with goodies!)

Thank you so much for your comments and emails.
I can't tell you, how much that means to me. I tried to get back
to those of you, whose emails I have but wanted to say thank you
to all of you here too.
I'm really blessed to have so many people caring about me and how I feel
(I feel fine btw. cried a bit on saturday, chattet with people on sunday and since then I'm pretty busy and did some major retail therapy today and bought 4 pairs of shoes (on sale though!))

Thank you!

And I want to give goodies:

Either a skein of sock yarn dyed to your specs or roving (need to order that though!)


an Issue of the Philday knitting mag ( autumn 2006/2007)

Just leave a comment till Friday 15th of august 6 p.m. CET and tell me what you are gratefull for!

I am grateful to have found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.
Though we will not have children, and the length of the life we have together will not be as long as some.
You see... I met my husband when I was 41 and he was 43. We married 5 years later, at 46 and 48. (actually exactly 2 years and one day ago!)
My parents will celebrate their 50th anniversary this Winter. We probably won't get to do that. (and if we do will we know who each other are?)
But I wouldn't trade one single second of our time together for anything in the world! Except maybe more time together.
Oh dear... I hope this doesn't sound sappy or sad...because it's not. I am gloriously happy and madly in love and grateful as all get out to have him in my life.

Woops!... I meant to say that you don't need to enter me in the goodies offer. I live in US and the postage would be terrible. But since it is my anniversary I felt so grateful for DH and your post made me think of saying so.
And your sorrows recently too. Because I understand.

Hi Tini - sending a hug. I'm glad you are feeling better.

What am I grateful for? Oh, there's so much. Certainly, my family tops the list. I think I've been very fortunate in my life.

I should have posted earlier, especially since you were so kind to help me with your advice, but I'm not so sure about your situation and I don't want to say the wrong thing. I'm pretty sure I want to have kids, but I don't have a partner and I'm past my twenties...

I don't want any of the goodies either, because I'm just glad you showed up at my blog and posted some words of encouragement. :)

I'm glad I left those crazy toxic people behind and made new friends who brighten my life up.

hi tini,

me again - but who could resist goodies? ;)

I'd like some roving, please :)

What I am grateful for?
My family, since that isn't something you can take for granted.
My health, since I had/have some issues.
Our overall situation - a nice house, enough money to live comfortably, and even enough for that little dose of luxury now and then ;)
My friends. Not many, but I know they are there when I really need them.
So much to be grateful for!

Oh, more things than I can count! I have cranky days like you had, where it's hard to see the positive parts, but mostly, even my problems remind me of how very much I have to be thankful for: when I'm sick I can at least be grateful that I'm alive now, instead of when doctors used leeches; when my husband irritates me I can still remember that we've managed to stay happy together for 14 years, which is no small achievement; when Firstborn was diagnosed with ADHD, I thought, well at least he's healthy otherwise. I am continually amazed that this accident spun out of fire and space dust has led to oceans and mountains and kittens and chocolate. Every day is a miracle.

Of course, I'm probably only saying that because the sun is shining. If it were raining, I'd be all, "blaaaagh."

"Major retail therapy" - I like that!

I am grateful for having my kids, my husband, a fairly normal life. I am grateful that we are blessed with so many things that I have the luxury to feel cranky some days with my kids, my husband and our ordinary life knowing in the heart of hearts that I do not have any real sorrows!

I am most grateful for my wonderful husband and my family! They support me when I need it most.
