Once again, it is another edition of Thankful Thursday. Thursday is the day I pause and reflect on how very fortunate I am. There is usually something big or small to be thankful for and we all feel better when we accentuate the positive. I hope you will consider joining me. Mighty Mom has joined our thankful party. Go over and check out her Wonderful Life!

I am thankful that I passed my karate test this week. Orange is my new favorite color!

I have season tickets to a local theater and the season starts tonight. I am thankful that I have a wonderful friend to go to these plays with. We go out to dinner first and it is a very enjoyable evening.

I am thankful that I have a super sized weekend to look forward to. I have Monday off so I decided to really stretch things out and take tomorrow off too. My husband and son also have tomorrow off so we are going to do something fun.

I am thankful for my facebook and bloggie friends. I was bombarded with birthday wishes. It was great to hear from so many old (and I mean old!) friends.

I am thankful that my husband and son are meeting with the music teacher today to talk about the possible eagle project. He is on his way!

I am thankful that I got my car fixed this week and the cost was $125 less than the first estimate we received.

I am thankful that I live in New England where the foliage is so beautiful.

I am thankful that the Red Sox made the playoffs so I have more games to watch. What will I do with the extra time when the season is over?

I am thankful that I live in the United States where we all take our freedom for granted.

What are you thankful for today?

Here's to everything wonderful!


  1. Happy Thursday! So many blessings in our life -- it's nice to stop and appreciate them. :o)

  2. That's a lovely list!! Congrats on the orange belt. That's no small accomplishment. Your son is discussing his eagle project? How exciting! Please keep us posted on that one.

    This week I'm thankful that my kids are working with compassionate teachers. I'm thankful that all the adults in this house have jobs. I'm thankful that when my dog killed a squirrel yesterday, she didn't bring it in the house. I'm thankful that this round of flu was relatively quick.

    Belated happy birthday!!

  3. We're doing the same long 4 day thing!! Which means today is Friday and I'M VERY HAPPY!!

    Hallie :)

  4. I'm thankful for the fact that they finally turned on the heat here at school, on this cold and rainy day. So sorry that your Tuesday day off is wet.
    I hope you had fun anyway.

  5. I am thankful that I have blogs like your's to come to to remind me that I have many things to be thankful for... not the least of which is when we get moved I will not have to tiptoe through the potholes on my country road.

    Thanks for this Thankful Thursday.
