Another Thankful Thursday

Do we really take the time we should to reflect on the things that we are thankful for? I know I don't, so on Thursdays, I am going to reflect on the things in my life that I should appreciate more.

I am thankful that I have a 15 year old son that is willing to go out for brunch with his Mom.

I am thankful for Hallie who is passionate about making the world a better place. She is raising money and awareness about organ donation in honor of her Dad who received a donor heart. Consider donating to this amazing woman's cause as she attempts to raise $5,000! You could win a nifty prize too. You can donate here.

I am thankful that I had a good night's sleep last night. That doesn't always happen.

I am thankful that I have tomorrow off because our office is closed. I love 3 day weekends.

I am thankful that the forecast for tomorrow includes "partly sunny". I have missed my friend, Mr. Sun, greatly over these past several weeks and I hope we can persuade him to stay around for a little while.

I am thankful that my son's work permit came in this week. Now he just has to get on the schedule!!

I am thankful that I was able to attend my karate class this week. I really do enjoy it which is as big a surprise to me as it is to everyone else!

I am thankful that I have found someone to go to the outdoor performance of "Grease" with. "Grease" is one of my all-time favorite shows. You can't go wrong with an outdoor show in a beautiful park on the bank of the Piscataqua River.

I am thankful for the warm welcome I have received from Blogdom!

Last, but not least, I am very thankful that I live in the wonderful United States of America.
Happy Birthday, America.

What are you thankful for today?

Here's to gratitude.


  1. I am thankful for my health, that I am surrounded by people who want me to succeed, and that I have been blessed with six healthy children

    For starters...


  2. That you mentioned my fundraiser. I really am.

    That God has given me the strenght NOT to throttle my oldest son as he tests ever nerve I have.

    That John's hand is healing (albeit slowly) and that he hasn't had any complications.

    That God also sees fit to give me the strength to deal with our newest health crisis.

    That I have amazing friends that make me laugh when I need it most.

    Hallie :)

  3. I am thankful for every single blessing that I've been given. And there are MANY!!

    taking a day to say thanks is always a good thing!!

  4. love. this. post.
    I am thankful for my constant blessings....seen and unseen!

  5. I may have to get back to you! I guess I'm thankful for people and things to distract me when I need it most. And I promise to be extra-thankful if Mr. Sun actually shows his face!

  6. We all have much to be grateful for if we look. I'm happy for you :)

  7. This is a great thing to start!
