Thankful Thursday 03.27.14

It's Thursday! Time for another edition of Thankful Thursday. You don't realize how lucky you are to have the things you do until you hear about someone who lost all of theirs. I was touched by a customer this week who shared a very trying time in her life, and humbled because she told me that I made her smile for the first time in days. Wow. I have so many things I am thankful for, and I can't pick just one. For instance: *My best friend and her family are coming out tonight to spend the weekend celebrating Squishy's 13th birthday. Thanks to the weather Mother Nature threw at us earlier in the month, we had to celebrate later. I am … [Read more...]

Thankful Thursday: Grateful For The Simple Things

Thankful Thursday: Grateful For The Simple Things

It's seems that lately I have had a major case of "the whines". I am tired of winter. I am tired of cold. I am tired of not having my parking space. Blah. Blah. Blah.

So, time for me to shut up and be thankful for my blessings. I am thankful that I really do have my parking spot back. Probably seems trivial, but it means a lot to me.

When God shows just how great He is

So Very Thankful This Thursday

  I am so excited for a few things. First, time change is this Saturday night. Which means it is lighter longer. Of course, the kids have to go to the bus stop in the dark, but that won't be for too much longer either. Second, and hopefully an important point, Spring is 2 weeks away. Can we please make sure that Mother Nature gets the memo this time? Yesterday I blogged about 5 things I can't live without. Fun, but a little bit shallow. But on a slightly different path, there are a bunch of things I am grateful for this week: A friend's baby who they thought might have major health issues, came through tests today with a clean … [Read more...]

It's Always Great To Be Thankful

Thankful Thursday For February 27th

Today I am thankful for several things. I could go into a whole long spiel so I can make the SEO Gods very happy. But I am not going to do it.  I am going for heartfelt and simple tonight. And true to the heart. I am thankful for several things: That my oldest son's health issue turned out to be a minor thing. For his privacy, I won't go into details because well, it is a delicate area to discuss. I am thankful that hubby was able to get off this afternoon to take him to the doctor. It was much better handled by him. I am really thankful that we had a bit of sunshine today, as we are going to get slammed by yet another major … [Read more...]
