Thankful Thursday

As some of you know, I was working on a One Thousand Gifts list before I took a break from blogging.  I went back and forth about continuing it here on the blog, because it became very personal.  Although I have gotten personal here in this space, I decided there are some things that I'm not ready to share with the whole world.  I continue to keep my personal list going, but will start up Thankful Thursday again.

This week I'm thankful for:
     ~ the ability to help my children when they need it
     ~ GPS on road trips
     ~ real handwritten snail mail letters from a friend
     ~ supportive friends even if they don't understand
     ~ a cold rainy morning, a cup of tea, a warm sweater, and Shylee singing softly while building Lego masterpieces                   
     ~ being able to do more physically
     ~ watching movies all day while it snows
     ~ all my blog friends and their warm welcome back

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Being all snuggled up on the couch watching movies all day sounds pretty great :)
    Today I'm thankful for leftovers. It's always a good day when I don't have to cook :)

  2. Hi A. :)

    I totally get the too personal thing, I wonder sometimes about what I write, to start with I kept things very neutral but I guess as I connected with more Blogger Buddies I think I might have gotten a little too comfortable, unfortunately we have no clue who is out there reading our words, well I know we can see the clicks but who are they????

    Isn't it wonderful to get a hand written letter in the mail, I feel it is slowly becoming a lost art, I was a big, big letter writer but now only a handful of my friends still write in snail mail form and card sending also is becoming a thing of the past, oh well, I guess we have to accept the new things, but it doesn't make me happy :(

    No I'm sounding just plain old and grumpy, lol :)

    Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday, Cheers, T. :)

  3. You have such a gift for noticing those little things that make everything better.

  4. I have a few posts that are really personal, but I find that readers don't really remember that stuff anyway ;-)
    Those are wonderful things to be thankful for. I can just imagine Shylee singing while playing with Lego...


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