Gratitude Countdown Day 2



I am grateful for Friday night date nights with my BFF hubby and grandson!

I am grateful for my nieces and nephews!

I am grateful for children. They make my heart very happi!

I am grateful for Arizona weather this time of year!


Combine ALL of those and you have my gratitude story for today.

First of all, Kirt & I usually plan a date night where we get to take our Grandson. I am grateful for the memories we are able to create on these nights. I am also glad that it gives our daughter & her husband to go on a date and have a break from their son. This past Friday we went to Ry’s cousins home, then dinner, where our 2yr old Ryan took control of the chips & salsa! After dinner we went shopping where he took control of the toy department! Such fun times!!

That brings me to a week ago Friday!

We went to a couple of my nieces & nephews darling kids baseball game. It was such a BEAUTIFUL night. It was chilly, but not cold. Arizona has the most amazing weather for about 6-7 months of the year making being out in the good old outdoors a pleasure. This was one of those evenings to perfection! I don’t think Ryan had ever been to a game and he LOVED it! He stood up at the fence and cheered on his cousins. It was adorable. 🙂 I was surprised at how much he got into the actual game. Every time the ball was hit he would get so excited! Check out this video of him watching his little cousin hit the ball and run…


 Super cute huh?!


Then about 10 of his little cousins came and he got to run and play with them.

We got to see 2 of our great-nephews pitch, hit a double and a home run!

It was wonderful evening of creating memories and enjoying blessings!

I am sharing a Gratitude quote from Oprah that I really like.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more.

If you concentrate on what you don’t have,

you will never, ever have enough.”

~Oprah Winfrey
