Blogging From A to Z... "Z"

An Attitude of Gratitude 
I AM THANKFUL...

1)  For surviving the Monday zoo at work and maintaining my smile, despite the dread of returning to the rat race after a wonderful week of escaping from it all.

2) For my Grandma's delicious zucchini bread recipe.  I love fried zucchini too!

3) For those who are zealous defenders and advocates of people and animals who are neglected or abused.

4) For being born under one of the more "interesting" signs of the Zodiac - Aquarius.  Ok maybe we're just a "bit" weird/eccentric/strange/stubborn... but I've never met one I didn't like! :-)

5) For zippers - they sure beat buttoning  up a long row of buttons; and while we're on the zip topic, I'm thankful for Ziploc storage bags too... so easy for arthritic fingers to handle.

6) For crocheted afghans stitched in a zigzag ripple pattern.  I once made a king-sized one in rainbow colors.  It was bright and beautiful.

7) For living in a zip code that doesn't experience snowstorms in April!! :-)

8) That the predicted zombie apocalypse didn't come to pass last December. Whew, that was a close one ;-)

9) For considering good reasons to complain about my life and finding zero, zip, zilch, nada!

10) For this personal encounter with a friendly zebra at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center near Glen Rose, Texas.  How many folks can say that a zebra ate from their hand?
 And this, my friends, is "Zee End"...
the final post for the 2013 Blogging From A to Z April Challenge... I did it!

  3. Such a lovely list! I like Zucchini too!! My mum is the same Zodiac sign as you :) Zealous people are hard to find even more so, are the ones who defend animals and humans! We need more people like that!

    1. Thank you Judygirl! Ahh, if your Mum is an Aquarian, then you have a pretty good understanding of what I'm like! :-) I agree, the world needs more people willing to take a stand against things we know are wrong. I am blessed to know some awesome people that are like that!

    1. Listing was just a simple way to do these posts, Shimon, I could have written them in paragraphs instead, I suppose. :-) I am glad to complete the project too, now I can be thankful for things that begin with all letters of the alphabet! ;-)
