Giveaways and gratitude

Chocolate Covered Katie is giving away some lovely coconut goodies, yummm!  I haven't gotten to try any vegan recipes with coconut butter yet, but I'm excited to try!  Her fudge baby creations certainly look worthy of repeating as soon as I finish off the coconut macaroons I melted over this week.

So I remembered that I was going to do a gratitude post for Thanksgiving and just never got to it with all the hosting responsibilities.  With such a stressful day today, I think it's well overdue.

I'm grateful for a roof over my head, food on the table, clothes on my back, and love in my heart.
I'm grateful for my family and friends.
I'm grateful for the puppy that loves me unconditionally.
I'm grateful that my hubby believes in equality and is open to changing our eating habits.
I'm grateful for this great state I live in!
I'm grateful that I have a job.
I'm grateful that I was able to receive the gift of a quality education.
I'm grateful that I am healthy and can strive for greater health still.
I'm grateful for my love of learning.
I'm grateful that I am a happy person!
I'm grateful for my best friend.
I'm grateful for all the people who make me laugh and smile.
I'm grateful that I have all the little quirks that created my unique personality.
I'm grateful that I am so loved.
I'm grateful to be an optimist.

Yep, life is pretty darn good!
