Thankful Thursday

 Thankfulness happens in many ways. The world is filled with chaos. People tend to focus on all the bad. How about finding one good thing each day and share it with someone?

1. Yesterday I stopped by the mexican drive thru for a quart of green chili. The regular guy was not there but a young lady was at the window. She was so nice conversing with me and treating me so kindly. She had a huge smile and was super nice. SHe made up for any unkindness I had to deal with. THANKFUL

2. Snow on the ground, we need moisture but I currently prefer rain. We had both but anyway it came to us I was very THANKFUL

3. I had my annual mammogram today. It is not my favorite thing but I do it diligently. My paternal grandmother was a breast cancer survivor. So were three of my dad's five sisters. THANKFUL

4.  THANKFUL the month of March was a good one It seems to have flown away. I refuse to be caught up in all the nasty hateful social media garbage. I repeat, please find one good thing in your life each day and share it with someone. 

5. Starting to fall asleep in my chair. THANKFUL I can get a few extra zzzz's when needed. I like to let the hubby sleep soundly while I putter around taking care of a few odds and ends before bedtime. 

6. THANKFUL the mister still has a job and grateful he likes the fast pace when they are busy. So many are out of work. I can P R A Y.

7. I love the quiet and stillness at night. But I also like to snuggle under the warmth of my heated blanket and fresh sheets and enjoy a nice rest. Today we saw a man rising from a tent he had pitched in  on a median off the highway as we were heading to my appointment which is closeby to downtown Denver.  Makes me sad to see this. 


Folks my father lived by this verse. When his brother passed away and later his brother-in-law, he took care of my auntie Elsie K and his sister Anna S. He made sure they had everything they needed. Not for any pat on the back, he truly believed this was what he needed to do. He would be sad to see the condition of our world and how everything is backward. We are not taking care of our own here in our own country first. Tragic but THANKFUL I learned from my father what God's truth is.. I am forever grateful for him.

9. THANKFUL for the kindnesses shown to me by those who know and care for me as the days approach for more anniversaries of loss , my sister Pat's birthday and the loss our our unborn child Rachel Lee on the same date. The 36th anniversary of my father's passing approaches soon.  My mother's younger sister Ann 8 days after my father's passing and the loss of my sweet Tata Rose a month later. I am very grateful for the parents I Had. Grateful for the education I was given at a young age and grateful my parents were proud of their heritage and not concerned with hatered and disrespect. I wish I were more like them and pray each day I can be a person person, the way they were.


THANKFUL for these sweet Baby Yoda shares. Thank you Cynthia in Illinois for making me laugh today.

Please visit Thankful Thursday  and always be THANKFUL.

Wonderful thankful things, Anne. There are so many things and I am thankful for them each and every day.

I quit listening to politicians, hollyweird and the lamestream media. I deleted Facebook and Twitter. I've never been happier.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, honey. Big hugs. ♥

Wonderful! I love your challenge to find something Good in Every Day and share it with someone. These anniversaries you cite are so poignant. Do you know, yesterday I realized for the first time in 8 years I totally forgotten March 12 when we lost Caraleigh ... and I've been beating myself up about it since. Hopefully she knows I prefer to celebrate her date of birth. {{{HUGS}}}
