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

Another Gratitude Tuesday has rolled around. This week I have been grateful for so many things. It’s nice to be able to concentrate on just one letter!

Josette – Josette was the beautiful, young, black and white cat I got the day I started college when I was 18. She was one of the best friends I ever had. During the 7 years I lived alone I sometimes felt like she was my only friend. This beautiful animal lived for 15 years. We grew up together and still think of her and miss her. Even both of my children refer to her as my first born!

Junk food – I can’t help it! Comfort food is such a … well a comfort!

Journey – I am so grateful for journeys. To travel, to see new places is wonderful. But the real journey, the one of discovery – now that is a trip! The journey that Nick and I began such a short time ago had already been a mind blowing experience! I can’t wait to see what is around the bend.

Jokes – I am so grateful for a good joke! Clean, dirty I don’t care. I love it when friends share. The latest I heard – A man comes home from work to find his wife in a sexy night gown. “Tie me up” she purrs “and you can do anything you want” So he ties her up and goes golfing. Actually that’s not too funny!

Justice – I am grateful when it happens. No, justice is not always wide spread. But it is a wonderful thing and sometimes it does win out.

Job – I am very grateful for my job. First, I love it! Being with the kids and teaching is fun. I also love the time I have off to be with my own children. One more thing that is special about my job, is that where we live, it is about the only job that has real job security.

Jewels – only Nick’s family jewels. The other kind doesn’t interest me much!

Julie – a close friend to really helps me keep my head on straight!

Joints – I am grateful for my joints. They are working at the moment. Sometimes they don’t and I truly miss them when they don’t!

Juicy – I love every possible definition of this word!!

Juke box – The old juke box at the dance hall near the cabin my folks rented in the summer sparked many a summer romance. I loved that old thing.

Jack-o-lantern – I love fall, Halloween, and everything to do with it.

Joy - I am most grateful for the absolute joy I feel these days! I have had a good life. It has always been calm and content, but the joy, the joy is new! I am grateful to Nick and all of you for bring this into my life.

    I loved your list and the joke you shared made me laugh out loud!! I know what you mean about your love for Josette, I feel that way about the fuzzy man in my life right now, we're totally bonded.

    Thank you so much for sharing your 'J' words with us all today. Every list I read tells me something else about the person who wrote it. I learned some very nice thing about you today.
