As this is my first list on my 52-week quest to post a list every Monday, I thought it was only fitting to start with the things I'm grateful for. 
So here we go.  I'm thankful for:

1. a deep-seeded faith which keeps me grounded
2. a strong marriage to a man I greatly admire and who consistently makes me giggle
3. healthy, happy, beautiful babies
4. my education
5. a roof over my head, clothes to wear, food to eat
6. access to clean water
7. a strong, healthy body
8. books
9. laughter
10. a job that I love
11. good parents who taught me well
12. my siblings
13. my girlfriends
14. handwritten notes (aka. snail mail)
15. rain
16. The Cheesecake Factory's key lime cheesecake
17. the willpower to eat it rarely
18. Facebook (now, now, don't hate- I've been reacquainted to so many long lost friends through Facebook and I'm honestly and sincerely very grateful!)
19. my SW girls- the list is too long- you're all wonderful!
20. crayons and paper, and the simple works of art made by my children
21. green grass... no, wait.  green ANYTHING!
22. air conditioning
23. quilts
24. solitude
25. old photographs
26. words of wisdom
27. the safety my family always seems to be blessed with
28. those who teach my children
29. homegrown tomatoes and fresh basil
30. electricity and indoor plumbing
31. the mountains
32. modern medicine
33. good music
34. the knowledge that I am unique and special and loved
35. the ability to choose and continually strive to make myself better
36. funny movies
37. the important life lessons I've learned and for those who taught them to me
38. the trials in my life which make me stronger
39. snowstorms
40. love notes
41. calculators
42. hot chocolate in the evenings with JT
43. my passport
44. citrus trees (always make me happy!)
45. changing leaves in autumn
46. Disneyland
47. wide-open spaces
48. Christmas decorations
49. homemade bread

This list is amazing - things I didn't even think of that I'm grateful for, too. I think I would need to add "spell check" to the list. And "hearing"... the sound of my kids laughing and running through the house is amazing.
Can't wait to see what lists you come up with!

I love your lists Rachel! I'm grateful for so many things, but right now I'm thinking of relationships. Relationships are everything. My relationship with God, my family, my friends, people I don't know but encounter along the way. How I treat other people, will remember them and them me. Thanks for getting this started.
