I read a short article today about being grateful. In the article, the author quoted Thomas Paine, "These are the times that try women's souls." She is right. She states that for 2008 we've had our own revolutionary drama. From the recent hurricanes, the trouble on Wall Street, gas prices, and the outcome of this election (whether your happy about it or not) is enough to cause most women to fret. But she reminds us that we need to remember the simple things, the things that remind us that no matter what is happening we have a choice. So in the spirit of gratefulness I am listing just a few things that I am extremely grateful for...

Cold autumn days,
A warm fire,
Smiles, and
A good book to read

What are you grateful for?
