I like your approach to the thankfulness topic!

From one oatmeal lover to another, yes, it can get to be same ol', same ol' day after day. If you're looking for a bit of variety, I recommend quinoa (pronounced keen'-wah). It's a grain that many people with wheat allergies can eat. Quinoa takes a bit longer to cook, but it looks cute and has great texture. Plus, you can use it as the base for a lot of interesting recipes.


I really needed this idea at this moment. I'm letting way too much get me down.



It's an interesting approach. I have tried to keep a Gratitude Journal in the past and I always fail because I forget to update it everyday.


Great post with an interesting take on the powers of positive thinking. I love the old-fashioned oatmeal too, but with raisins and walnuts added. Oh and mine has to be cooked in milk not water. Makes it creamier. :-)


I am thankful that you are posting again!


Oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins makes winter bearable.


Your posts are almost very interesting, with great perceptive and understanding of human nature, including your own. I found a wonderful GF oatmeal and now it's disappeared from store shelves. Many other brands are just a gluey mess. Dang it. I love starting my day with oatmeal.


That's an interesting spin! Thank you!


Lovely post.


I'm thankful for your posts Terry. They are very enjoyable to read, you definitely have a knack for writing. Love your outlook on the day to day things in life, I have always tried to look at the positive side of things in my life and w/a positive outlook my predictable days turn into something interesting... at least I hope.
To "inglesidebelle" our family is huge fan of quinoa. I have never heard it described as "cute" but you are right, it is kind of cute. Have you tried red quinoa?


Are you able to have peanut butter? I have become a major fan of all-natural peanut butter in my old-fashioned oatmeal, with nothing else added. LOVE. Sort of savory, very different, and it really stays with me for a morning. (I add a heaping Tablespoon of p.b. with 1/3 c. oats and somewhat-less-than 1 c. water in the bowl and microwave it for 2 mins or so.)

Your thoughts are very inspiring. Even though you've experienced something of worst kind today (that leaky ceiling thing), you still managed to face it in a positive way. Continue inspiring us with your thoughts!!
