Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that this Saturday is my last official meeting to conduct for IOBG Delta District 19. I’m tired and it’s time to pass the torch to the next person. I’ll be district director next year and that will be a wonderful capstone to 10 years of volunteering in the boating community.

I’m thankful that we can boat over to that last meeting and enjoy the cruise and the company of fellow boaters, along with a fabulous meal.

I’m thankful for the first face lift we’ve done on our boat. The transformation has been nothing short of amazing. If you missed that post click HERE.

I’m thankful for all the opportunities that have come my way throughout my lifetime. I recognized them and worked hard to succeed. Many were very difficult, but I kept at them until they became my reality. Nothing and no one can take those precious successes and memories away from me.

I’m thankful for my neighbors. We watch out for each other, care for each other and respect each other. That doesn’t always happen in neighborhoods.

I’m thankful that I wake up each day and embrace the new day with vigor. It’s a blessing to be alive. Most of all I’m thankful that my glass is half full. Actually it’s completely full and overflowing.

Have a fabulous day.
