Thankful Thursday

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.

One of our nephews passed away yesterday.  It's just very sad and heartbreaking, but I'm thankful he was able to spend his last days with his family and that he went peacefully.  I'm thankful his family find peace and comfort in their faith.  God is good!

I'm also thankful for
     *  not having a job!  I'm still battling this virus and I probably would have been fired by now.
     *  my sewing room is ready to organize and decorate
     *  my new found distaste for diet coke.  Being sick has messed with my taste buds and I've been trying for ages to give up the soft drink.
What are you thankful for today?

Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. Sorry to hear of your loss Annette. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Touching photo. :-)

    I too am thankful for no job (at the moment as it's Summer vacation) I need the recharge and am enjoying projects around the house and hanging out with my boys. :-)

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your family's loss Annette. I love your photo and always find cemetaries to be rather comforting.
    Oh a happier note, I am looking forward to seeing your new sewing room!

  3. Sorry to hear about your nephew's death.

    I gave up Diet Coke for Lent, but unfortunately, I still drink. I'm trying to cut back and drink more water instead.

  4. My sincere condolences to you and your family. It is never easy to lose someone, especially when that person is young. Our greatest comfort is knowing that they are in a far better place.

    Some viruses are more resistant and persistent than others, sounds like you caught one of them. :( Take care and get well soon. :)

  5. Annette, I was saddened to hear about your recent loss. My condolences to you on the loss of your nephew. I will keep you and your family in my prayers - sending you a big hug.

  6. Oh Annette,

    I am so sorry to hear about your Nephew.

    It is always so sad when a member of the younger generation leaves us.

    Keeping your family in our hearts and prayers.

    And ditto Cindy sending you a big hug :) T.

  7. I'm so sorry about your nephew. Truly devastating.
