  1. This is fun to read! I wonder if I will write one too. Not because I should, because I have a ton to be thankful for.

  2. You are blessed.Pat Sent from my BlackBerry 10 smartphone. From: monagustafsonaffinitoSent: Saturday, July 30, 2016 4:09 PMTo: patgitt@gmail.comReply To: monagustafsonaffinitoSubject: [New post] MY CURRENT PERSONAL GRATITUDE LIST

  4. Hi, Mona, WOW that is quite a list. What a challenge it would be if you had to reduce the list to only one item, What would it be?

  5. Marilyn is right, I have started my gratitude list in my head. Working on it. Glorious idea!!!

  6. Jack is right, too. How to edit one gratitude out of the bunch. Oh dearie me!!!

  7. Your list reminded me to be grateful for the years I ran and did races. Sometimes I forget to be thankful for that instead of feeling bad I cannot do that anymore. Thank you.

  8. Number one on my gratitude list for today is that on Sept. 23rd I will see my Grandson Nathanael for the first time in 20 something years.  Tears of joy. Kerri can’t stop this. we were in touch on Facebook last year and he said if I was ever coming to Michigan to look him up.  So the other day I sent a message and said- Morning, I was just thinking that September might be a good time to come to Michigan for a day or two. What do you think?  And he said YES!
