GratiTuesday- Don't Know What to Write About....

As I sit here trying to come up with something to write I'm having a hard time coming up with something.  You see, it's not that I'm not grateful for things, but I'm grateful for the usual things, and I'm wondering if you're tired of hearing about it? 

Like, I'm grateful for my kids.  They have the most amazing hearts.  They're always willing to give up things to help other people, and that never ceases to amaze me..... but I'm sure I've mentioned already how proud I am of the boys and their willingness to take the babies into our family and all that that entails....

I'm grateful that I have a daughter to have girl time with while we're surrounded by all these boys.....

I'm grateful that my husband has the most amazing heart.  He's willing to take in extra children, he puts up with me, etc....  And this past week when I was overwhelmed and PMSing and VERY cranky, he never retaliated against me...  He was very patient, and that was not lost on me at all....

I'm grateful for our fireplace and sitting by it on a cold day....

I'm grateful for my lazy dog....  I think she's the laziest ever, but she loves us....

I'm grateful that I know where I'm sleeping at night, and I know I'll have food.....

I'm grateful that I can go to God in prayer when I have to make difficult decisions and I don't have to make them by myself.

I'm grateful that my husband and I can make these types of decisions TOGETHER with mutual respect for each other.......

So, you see, I have a LOT to be grateful for.....  I just don't know what to write about ;)

    I stopped over when I saw the name of your blog, and found a great idea to be grateful, even when things are looking bleak and dreary.
    Thanks for making me smile.
