Blogging From A to Z... "W"

An Attitude of Gratitude 
I AM THANKFUL...
1) For my life-long love affair with words, and particularly written words that give me the means to express the thoughts and feelings rumbling around in my mind.  Writing is my passion!

2) For being the wife of the most wonderful man I've ever known!  I still keep expecting to wake up one day and find it's all been an amazing dream.

3) For this week away from work that has permitted Papa Bear and I to wander Savannah and the surrounding area as we please, to stay up late and sleep until we are rested, make beautiful memories together that will last for the rest of our lives!

4)  For the warm welcome Papa Bear received when he attended a Freemason's Meeting in downtown Savannah last night as a visiting Past Master.  The Lodge meets at this Scottish Rite Temple that was built in 1912.  He loves to visit other lodges when we travel!
5) For our side-trip to Charleston, South Carolina today, and the wonderful carriage ride we took thru Charleston's historic residential area, which included driving by the John Rutledge House Inn where George Washington slept in 1791.  I learned from the tour guide that 150 lb. cannon balls had a range of over five miles, which amazed me!

6) For watching local craftswomen weave beautiful baskets from sweet grass at the City Market in Charleston which has been in existance since 1807. 

7) For the mouth-watering low-country (soul food) dinner we enjoyed at Poogy's Porch in Charleston that included collard greens and smoky Gouda cheese wrapped in chicken breasts which are then lightly battered and fried, whipped potatoes, green beans, and melt-in-your-mouth biscuits!

8) For perfect trip weather, including light sprinkles of rain that cooled off our carriage ride this afternoon, and the downpour that held off until just minutes after we walked the six blocks from the restaurant back to our rental car which was parked by the carriage stables.

9) For the best sipping whiskey ever - Wild Turkey American Honey, served chilled or on the rocks!

10) For this beautiful wood puzzle box I purchased from a vendor at the City Market. It was made from an old cedar mailbox post, and it has another box nested inside...
