  1. Sometimes it is enough when there is a warm blanket and a book. You have so much more on your list. May your list keep growing during this month.

  3. All good thing to celebrate, Michelle. I miss having so many stickers, but do buy a few for the grand-girls. Even my middle-schoolers loved them!

  4. Michelle, I believe you when you say that practicing gratitude is powerful. It has gotten me through some rough patches for sure. I love how your list gives me a peek into your world. I am wondering what kinds of pens you like...and the one about memories of your dad resonates- my dad died twenty years ago this month. I think about him a lot, but especially in November. You set such a good example for all of us- not just through your commitment to writing, but by the way you live finding the good.

  8. I'm grateful for special pens and notebooks, too! And favorite authors and fresh new sheets, and a daughter who is standing next to my bed getting ready to apologize for her over-reactions! Thanks for reminding me to be grateful!

  10. I'm always a sucker for lists & yours are some of my favorite. I agree...a waiting notebook is a good reason to be grateful.
