Thankful Thursday

I'm happy to get back to my regular Thursday post for several reasons.  First, because I've missed hearing what you are thankful for, and second because focusing on the positive helps keep me from dwelling on the negative.  Unfortunately, I found myself doing just that the last few months but not any more!

Today I'm especially grateful for spring.  It is and always has been my favorite season.  Even though we had an unusually warm winter, it was still brown and colorless.  I love, love, love the colors and smells of spring, and the way everything comes back to life.  It's hard to stay depressed when everywhere you look is color and life.

I'm also thankful for
     *  my daughter and her willingness to help
     *  books and how they transport me to another place and time
     *  morning snuggles from a four year old
     *  a good session at physical therapy
What are you thankful for today?


  1. Yay!!! I am so happy to see you back to Thankful Thursday. I always looked forward to your reminders about all those little things that make life good.
    One of the memories that shaped my life were my grandmothers words that "you can never be sad or lonely when you have a good book" - words to live by! Those words defined an entire summer for me when I was in that awkward age. Thank you for the memories.

  2. Glad to see Thankful Thursday back!

    What lovely things you are thankful for. :-)

    This week for me...
    I had an old friend from my grade school days pass away. I was so thankful for a local friend here and all the hugs and support they gave me.

    And probably highest this week - thankful for prayer.

    I hope you have a lovely day!

  3. Beautiful photo...I love Spring too :)
    Today I am thankful for a 4-day weekend! I took a couple extra days of vacation and I'm going to enjoy them :)

  4. Such a lovely flower and you've captured the shot beautifully.

    I think it is hard to be upbeat when we're in the throes of an illness or trying to recuperate from a surgical procedure. Things take time to heal, and as we heal so do our emotions.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment.
