Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Great list Amy, and you're so right, we all have so much to be thankful for. Even the mailman bringing the mail, LOL!

Have a wonderful day!

Ridz said...

wonderful list!

we always forget to be thankful for the simplest(yet most important of stuff)

Happy TT~!

Caryle said...

You're so right about the mail! And yes, you don't realize how important your car is until you don't have it. :)

Thanks for stopping by last week. I was hit by a monster cold, and didn't make it to all my visitors. I'm trying to make up for it this week by hitting them first. ;)

Chana said...

What a positive post! I LOVE it! I am glad there are others out there that are looking for the positives in life. Congrats on the adoption too!

Thank you for stopping by. I like the pear jellies too...I LOVE the sour ones, cinnamon, blueberry..well, just about any of them.

Indiana Amy said...

what a great list Amy!

I am thankful for so many things too! Today it was for a really good episode of LOST! Can't wait until next week!

Samantha Lucas said...

Congrats on the adoption! That's sooo exciting. :)

My favorite 90210 season is senior year. :)

I almost did a list very similar to this one and changed it last minute. It was really nice to see yours.

Mom of three said...

A thoughtful list, thank you! By the way, I have a friend who is adopting from China and she is on her way there as we speak (left yesterday). It gives me goosebumps to write about it. I am so excited for her and can't wait to meet the little one! Glad you liked my TT and glad I found your blog! :)

Kadesha said...

Hey! I came here through the link you left me.. but I've already seen your picture once tonight... but this is a different list!! How weird is that?

I love this list and its a great idea. I think everyone should remember their lists every day. I might do that next week.

J-Dawg's Realm said...

Awesome list :) Thanks so much for stopping by! I wish you the best of luck with your adoption. I hope all goes well for you. Sometimes I know I dont take the time to be thankful for all the little things that makes us who we are

Shoshana said...

That is a very nice Thankful list. I need to make one I think.

marianne said...

wonderful list - we do get complacent sometimes and forget about those little things that mean so much.

Thanks for stopping by! :O)

Coco said...

It's amazing how most of us relate in taking things for granted.

Great list :)

Wendy Ann Edwina D'Cunha e Pereira said...

a great list... We really should spend time counting our blessings... then maybe the obstacles and difficulties won't seem so big...

Lazy Daisy said...

I've been without a car for the last month and a half so I can relate to what a blessing it is to have one. You are right...there are so many things we forget to be thankful for.

Boltbabe said...

Mail, never thought about it. Everyday things we seem to take for granted, huh?

Kim said...

My brother and his wife are in China now picking up their adopted little girl. Good luck to you! Thanks for sharing your list! Happy TT!!

debi said...

Wonderful list, Amy! I think living in a state of thankfulness is one of the easiest ways to stay happy!

Today I am thankful for our local library!

GreenEyedGirl said...

Awesome list.
It is hard to remember to be thankfull for everything.

Heather Rae Scott said...

This list gave me such a pick me up today and I needed that.

Wonderful list and as always, thank you for dropping by my blog!

Karen said...

What a great list! Reading someone else's blog today made me thankful that I got to know Heather, the former children's librarian at our library in TN. She rocked. She was so great with the kids and formed great friendships with the mommy group:-)

Amanda Young said...

Great list! I'm jonesing on the mail one. I live in a rural area, and they don't deliver everywhere. I have to drive to the post office everyday. Small thing, I know, but it can be a pain sometimes. Especially for someone like me, who won't leave the house without her makeup on. :)

Sparky Duck said...

boy 90210 really throws this list for a loop. though it was great overall. Its amazing how much we love our cars as soon as we first own one.

Amy said...

I've heard people gripe at how much stamps costs, but I say they are crazy! Where else can you send a piece of mail from Indiana to California and it only costs .39 cents?

I am thankful that even though the cost of stamps is going up, it is still cheaper to post it rather than drive it there!

Stephanie said...

Good luck with your adoption!! Thanks for visiting my TT. Stop by tomorrow for the trivia answers.

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Wonderful list, and congrats on the adoption!

Dane Bramage said...

Wonderful list! It is so easy to take little things (and even the big ones) for granted!

Ahhh...childhood memories! :)

Ctina said...

I think its so awesome that you're adopting! My husband and I've talked it because we know a few people, at our old church and our new one, who've done it. I hope it all goes smoothly!

JennyMcB said...

Amy- nice list! Thank you for making me blog of the day, what a surprise when I came here to check out your 13. I am thankful for all the sites that I get to visit through yours.

I am right with you on the comfortable furniture. 22 years later we still have our first living room set which we just covered. The couch is an awesome couch to lay on when sick.

Have a great evening!
