Thankful Tuesday...Big Poot Style

Today's Thankful Tuesday is brought to you by Big Poot... aka...my husband Scott!


My ABCs of Gratitude...

I am grateful for:

Amber, my heart and soul;

Bawdy broads, like Bette Midler;

Charisma, to which I owe every success;
Dramatic Literature, my professional passion;
Excelsior Springs, a quaint hometown;
Fliver, my reasonably reliable and spacious Ford Focus;
Germany, beer, schnitzel, sauerkraut, oh my;
Honky-Tonk music, the rock of my soul;
Imagination, which lights the days;
Jews, because they gave us laughter and Jesus;
Kansas City, a thriving arts community with room to breathe;
Lovely lady friends, like Cyndi, Sarah, Kerry, and Dawn;

Mer-Mom, who gave me an open mind;

Nighttime, because it's the right time;
Ozark Mountain weekends, a hillbilly hideaway;
Poot Manor, a house which is truly a home;
Questions, without which there would be no answers;
Rushing rivers, which soothe as they ramble;
Shakespeare, "better a witty fool than a foolish wit";
Tina Turner and Tom Jones, because they wail;

Utah, for inspiring so many good jokes and great stories;
Vegetables, for adding color and carotene to my plate;
Whiskey Sevens, to spice up the night;
X-cellent man-panions like Mark, Keith, Trevor, Patrick and Jeremy;
Yahtzee night with the Poot Crew;

Zinc, which tastes like metal but always works.

That was fun, but I left a few things out. I am also grateful for kind in-laws, a loving extended family, being able to do what I love for a living, three acres of natural beauty, skylines, oceans, lakes, peaches, plums, soft pillows, yellow legal pads, roosters (from whence my name comes), Russian novels, French cheese, Missouri wine, Arkansas woodlands, Texas hills, Florida islets, Minnesota friendly, monkeys and all things Poot.

Thanks Poot for such a fun and sweet list! There is never a dull moment in my day thanks to you! I love you!

XOXO

What a great list until the Tom Jones part. Everyone around here loves him too, don't get it. But a very good list.
