2019...Great Moments of Gratitude

 

On occasion, I’ve compiled a list of my most memorable moments for the year and what I have to be thankful for. It serves no purpose other than to remind me of the blessings I’ve had throughout the year. To some, they may seem ho-hum or big woo, but as I look back at the year, raffe's adoptionthese are the top 10 things I am grateful for. 

 

The 10 things I am most thankful for in 2019

 

1.  Moving back to Houston. It was time and I had had no regrets.

 

2. Rafael officially became a part of the family. This beautiful child had added so much to our lives.

3. We got through the year without a hurricane. Even though we no longer live in FL, the Texas coast has its fair share of hurricanes. Larry and I were so relieved not to have to put up hurricane shutters.

4.Renewed friendships with old Houston friends. Even with social media, being able to connect with old friends in person is so much better. 

 

bluebirds5. Became a part of a small (4) women who meet once a month for lunch.  While I was already good friends with one of the ladies, she invited me into her group and it’s as if we’ve known each other for years. 

 

6. My Astros went to the World Series  I did a lot of cheering and screaming for the Astros but they did not win. 

 

7. Larry and I had a bluebird nest in the box we’d placed in our backyard and we got to see the babies as they flew away. It all started with one bird feeder and just grew. We got to watch the bluebirds build their nest and then watch when the babies left.  

 

8. Traveled to Omaha and got to see our oldest grandson and Larry fly drones together and to watch our youngest grandson at batting practice with his coach. Larry was hoping that at least one of the grandsons would like flying so it was fun when Larry tried outlarry and hugo flying Hugo’s drone. Thatcher is our athlete and we often text each other during football games. But to get to see him bat with his coach was a thrill because he’s so good!  

 

9. I had a milestone birthday and I’m still kicking! This age is one that always seemed so old to me and yet here I am and I feel like I’m 50. 

 

10. I learned that you CAN go home again. People always say that you can’t but I learned that you can. Yes, things change but they will change wherever you are. 

 

 

What about you?  What would be on your list??

Hi Kathy Streib,

Your list weighs heavy on the Houston side of the equation and I think it is wonderful! I am very happy for you. 

I spent most of my years in CA and I would not go back. I hate to say never, but I will never go back.

Kathy,

What a beautiful list of memories you shared with us to be grateful for...It seems to me that not a day goes by that something new and wonderful comes our way to be appreciated and cherished.  By the way, we both feel like we are 35, and we certainly proved that on the slopes a week ago.  LOL A

Morning Kathy.

A milestone for me, we are now over 100 agents strong.  One of  my great grandsons is doing better after a scary start. Otherwise, so far everything else is good
