Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful for a wonderful husband that shares his life with me. I’m most blessed.

I’m thankful for my health. I just celebrated my 64th birthday and I feel wonderful. Oh I have aches and pains, but nothing serious.

I am thankful for my family, even though some are going through some trials and tribulations, they are still wonderful. May they be blessed beyond words.

I’m thankful to love our boating life. It’s a wonderful venue for us that we both love dearly.

I’m thankful for our Little Bit. She is nearing the end of her life, but she has been a blessing to us for almost 13 years.

I’m thankful for all my blogging friends. I’ve met so many of you over the years. I’m going to meet another buddy from Australia next month. More on that later.

Lastly I’m thankful for each day I’m given on this awesome earth. Hubby and I embrace life and live it to its fullest.

      Some folks only look at the negative things, and that's not good when there are so many positive things to focus on. 🙂

    What a wonderful post! It's important to recognize what we're thankful for but so often we don't. You got me thinking of what I'm thankful for too and that includes you and Little Bit! Give her snooter kisses for me!

    wonderful words Sandee! I am also grateful for my life and who is in it- I count my blessing every day! And aren't we all so blessed to live in this part of the world. It is not perfect, but we are better off than a lot of other people.

    • September 10, 2015 8:43 am at 8:43 am

      We sure are and to see so many people so miserable it's a shame. A shame. 🙂

  16. September 10, 2015 8:59 am at 8:59 am

    I love this post because I'm not a perfect person either…

    • September 10, 2015 10:45 am at 10:45 am

      I know you do. I can tell by the way you write. 🙂

  18. September 10, 2015 10:17 am at 10:17 am

    Every day we have the choice to be a lot of things, but I think choosing to be thankful is best. Have a. lesser day my blogging friend.

    • September 10, 2015 10:46 am at 10:46 am

      I agree my friend, I agree. 🙂

    Sad about Little Bit. But glad to see such a positive post. Praying you aren't anywhere near the wildfires that are in the news right now.

  30. September 14, 2015 9:52 am at 9:52 am

    It is sad about Little Bit. We are not near the fires, but we do have a lot of smoky haze to deal with. 🙂

  31. November 28, 2015 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm

    We have had our older cats about that long.
    The oldest was abandoned in near our local Walmart (which has since moved).
    The younger we got from a friend. Our littlest we've only had a couple of years.

    So glad you weren't too near the fires. xoxo

    • November 29, 2015 6:15 am at 6:15 am

      We lost Little Bit on October 22 this year. Such pain. 🙁
