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.

Shylee came to stay with us for the weekend while her mommy and daddy went away to celebrate their anniversary.  I'm thankful I'm well enough now to have her stay.  I'm also thankful she took a nap on this particular day!  She is a bundle of non-stop energy and gave up naps over a year ago.  It is rare to find her sleeping in the middle of the day.  I'm thankful for her.  She rocks my world!

I'm also thankful for
     *  invitations to parties, even if I can't go
     *  Erin's opportunity to go back to school
     *  the sweet smell of lavender when I walk into my sewing room
What are you thankful for today?


  1. So sweet! I remember being thankful for naps when my boys were little!! :-D

    This week I'm thankful for my son being able to come to work with me yesterday. It was so sweet to see him playing with the little guys and being so gentle and patient with them. It also made me realize how big he is, seeing him next to those tiny 3 year olds!!

    Thankful for a potluck party with some friends tonight and a planned date night with my hubby tomorrow.

    A busy but lovely week!

  2. Oh wonderful youth - so sad it's wasted on the young - all that energy, what we could accomplish if only we had a fraction of it. :)

    Shylee is so beautiful, looks like a little angel as she sleeps.

  3. I'm grateful it is Friday tomorrow and that in about a month, I'm going on vacation for a week!!! She is just a precious little thing. She MUST be related to you ;)

  4. So beautiful. I love your Thankful Thursdays Annette. I love the gratitude for invitations (even when you can't make the event, I totally agree). Today I'm thankful: for another day with my 16 year old dog, a husband who brought me a yummy lunch, and co-workers who are also good friends...

  5. She is so beautiful! The photos are wonderful, there is nothing more sweet then a sleeping child. I hope you had a wonderful visit.
