I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

Gratitude Tuesday

CeeCi, I know that I am jumping in late, but this is such a wonderful idea that I wanted to be a part of it. I had to jump in on the letter I, it was a bit tough to get started! But here goes and again, thanks for the inspiration.

Inspiration – The ability to change the lives of others with your thoughts, your writing, your creativity and your love and to be able to be inspired by these gifts from others.

Imagination – I could not have survived this far in life if I hadn’t had my imagination. My favorite toy as a child, my friend as an adult.

Ideas – Where would we be with out them? Ours, other peoples, good ones, bad ones ideas tell who we are. I love the look on Nick face now when I say, ‘I’ve got an idea!’

Image – A picture, a visual. The images that you all post on your sites tell so much about you. Whether you created the image or chose it, it speaks volumes.

Implement – There are lots and lots of implements I am grateful for. I hope for even more of them to be grateful for in the future.

Identity – Who we are. I have several identities. I have my identity as a daughter. I have an identity as a wife, as a lover. I have an identity as a mother. And I have yet another identity at work ,another with my friends here and still another as a blogger. I like the fact that I am the only one that knows my true identity.

Income – So very helpful. We often complain about the size. But when it goes away we realize just how good it actually was.

Infants – Both of mine and all the other I see. They give hope for the future; they soften the heart of anyone who sees them. They make me want to protect and care for them. Usually they bring out the best in people.

Intensity—A new feeling for me and I do love it!

Internet – Of course, a vital a source of inspiration, encouragement, acceptance, and information. It has provided me with friendship. It provided the catalyst to transform us from a middle-age couple in the doldrums to wild, crazy, sexy, amazingly passionate lovers. That’s a pretty awesome tool!


  1. Elis:: Honey!!! **that's me shouting** What a fantastic list! I chuckled out loud over "ideas" with your "imagination" I'm sure you've caused Nick's heart to pound and flutter on many occasions lately.

    What an eloquent description of "Identity." I'd not thought of it that way before...you're right. We're different beings when we're in different situations. Some of the personas I assume, I like, others can be tough as they're not comfortable. Like you, I savor knowing I'm the only one who will ever know the real me.

    I'm so happy you've jumped on board. This was a tough letter, I noticed that with the letter "e" as well. I'm beginning to think words that start with vowels are emotion words.

    **Big Hugs**

    ps:: You done good!

  2. Excellent list! So many things that I hadn't thought of.

    I just love that about GT!


  3. Love your list Elis, isn't it amazing how we all come with something different.
    I wonder how many different identities I have.
    Big hugs,

  4. What a great start Elis... may there be a great many more for you... all the way to Z and beyond. (I'm eager to see what CeeCi does after Z, he, he).
