Thankful Thursday

Hello Friends!  Every Thursday I share what I'm thankful for.  Sometimes it's a serious or big thing, and sometimes it's a goofy or small thing.  I believe that no matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for.  Always.

Today I'm thankful to be done with physical therapy.  After twelve weeks, my knee is doing much better and   I'm able to do most of my normal activities with a bit of modification.  I'm still not able to walk up and down the stairs in a 'normal' fashion, but I can do 4-6 steps before I have to switch from normal to not so normal.  I still can't walk through the grocery store and do a week's worth of shopping, but I can go in and get a couple of things.  This is progress!  So I will do the exercises the therapist gave me to do at home and I will continue to be thankful for the progress I've made.

I'm also thankful for
     *  the support and encouragement from my blog friends
     *  family time this past weekend
     *  signs that the muse is on her way back
     *  the thoughtfulness of my son and daughter
     *  being able to see the beauty that surrounds me
     *  not getting rained on while I was out this morning

What are you thankful for today?


  1. What a stunning shot! A real beauty!
    Good luck with your therapy too.
    and so true we all have something to be thankful for everyday.....thanks for reminding me!

  2. So thankful to hear you are feeling better and the muse has been whispering to you!
    This picture is so cool! As I was scrolling down to reaveal the whole thing I thought, first, of a sunburst and then I thought of popcorn. How cool that it envoked two very spontaneous thoughts! I believe I have heard that is the job of being an artist. Well done my friend.

  3. So glad to hear that you are making progress!! :-)

    Sometimes it's hard to slow down, but little steps and you'll be on your way.

    This week I'm so looking forward to the long weekend!! We have a big project planned in the house and hopefully a movie too!!

    ps...I'm hosting a fun Summer Swap on my blog - do stop by and take a peek. ;-)
