Thankful Thursday and on this day in history....

So, I'm linking up to Miss Buckle today and expressing my gratitude for some of the fantastic things in my life....

*fresh home grown tomatoes all sweet and delicious

*the opportunity to run my own business and take pictures of fun people

*a friend who likes to call and talk to me for hours at a time

* I love

*the amazing things one can learn every day from listening to others

*red, white and blue balloons
ignore the cheesy cns on them!!!! LOL.

And... on this day in history....

July 7th 2010... I lost my job, one I loved. But here we are a year later and all is well. I'm enjoying a new opportunity with new people and a promising future. I also backed into the neighbor's mini van on the same day, I should have known then it was going to be a bad day.

July 7th(ish) 2009.... we came home from a weekend trip to find our house flooded by a faulty water heater, 200 thousand gallons of water later and we were forced into a tiny apartment for six weeks while the house was restored to better than it's former glory... aaahhhh the awsomeness of homeowners insurance.

That's as far back as I can go.... you wanna know why??? because I didn't have a blog before March of 2009 therefore I probably didn't exist!  See, the benefits of a blog, it soooo helps out an old woman like me who can't remember what she did three years ago!!!

Leave a comment... tell me what you're thankful for and what you did on this day in history....thanks!
