weird that ashley tagged me with this today. i was just thinking about pollyanna. growing up, i loved the movie pollyanna so much that i swore if i had one, i would name my daughter pollyanna someday. things change, i named her elisabeth, but i still love the movie. if you remember, pollyanna invented "the glad game." that is what this tag is all about.

i know it would be fun to have a list of my favorite things here, like maine cottage furniture and bella notte bedding, but more than ever i have felt that things are just really kind of silly. even home things. i love my home, i like buying things for it and i suppose i always will, but i am kind of sick of stuff right now. so what am i grateful for? i guess it is more like who am i grateful for...

1. friends who cry with me, laugh with me, and laugh at me
2. a husband who brings me coffee
3. old church ladies who make jello salads and knit shawls
4. neighbors who wave
5. the milkman who appreciates my business
6. strangers who have prayed for me
7. second cousins twice removed who care to know me
8. my children's teachers who give them (and me) hugs
9. people who go above and beyond to take care of others
10. you

I just bought this for my daughter and me to watch together during her Sppring Break. It was a favorite of mine as a child...
Happy memories.

I love Pollyana too! I may have to rent that this weekend!

You have a milkman? How cool is that. We had a milkman back in the early 1960's when I lived in the city.

I also really like Pollyanna and think it has a very good message. I'm thankful for you too. I know you and your family have been through so much this month. Thank you for the reminder to be glad and thankful for the people in our lives, rather than the "things". My best to you.

I just read your blog all the way through. I love it. I understand all about ripping up carpet on a whim...or even taking down a wall. I used to scare my husband but he's getting used to my "ways". My sympathy to you & your's on the loss of your nephew.

Your list was sweet and your blog shows what a creative person you are. I feel that way about "things" too sometimes. I know what it is like to loose someone close. My heart goes out to you.

PS....I absolutely love old ladies and their jello salads. They make me feel so warm and fuzzy.
