Great list. That had to have taken some time! How many times did you have to stop and get something for Thomas? Hope he is healing well.

Debbie said...

You know, I consider myself to be a thankful person but I bet that would be a very difficult task!

Love your list. I love it so much I've made one on my blog. Thanks for sharing.

Heatherlyn said...

I have that many things to be grateful for ... but doesn't it take a long time to write it all out? I think it's a good idea though. Maybe next time my kids start complaining I will have them do this 100-grateful list idea!

Vickie said...

I like just about everything on that list except hotdogs and seafood:)
