Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that today is Saint Patrick’s Day. I love all things about this day of celebration. Especially all things that are green. I also love corned beef and cabbage, but will pass on the green beer. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’m thankful for my caring husband that will do whatever needs doing for his family. He’s had a difficult several weeks, yet he’s always right there to take care of whatever needs attention. This past Saturday hubby had the difficult task of putting mother on hospice care. It’s what she wants and at 96 I can’t blame her. Her quality of life is poor at best and with losing her daughter on February 23rd, she’s just given up.

I’m thankful that we visited a yacht club that we had been a member of several years ago. An issue took place and we left the club. This coming Saturday we’ll rejoin the club we love so much. What club? Ebony Boat Club. There isn’t a nicer group of people anywhere.

I’m thankful that the weather is again warming back up after several weeks of rain. We need the rain, but the sun and the warmth are most appreciated.

What are you thankful for today?

      We've already had corned beef and cabbage twice. Hubby wanted meatloaf so that's what's for dinner. πŸ™‚

    So sorry to read about your MIL. That must be difficult.

    Hurrah for St. Patty's Day. I'll have to remember to wear green or my kids will pinch me! πŸ™‚

    Wishing you and your husband peace. I know it's hard to put a loved one in Hospice, I'm thankful that Hospice is so wonderful to people they care for, at least that has been my experience with both of my grandparents.

    • March 17, 2016 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm

      Hubby is doing pretty good, but mom is still here. When she's not that will be different. πŸ™‚

    I'm so sorry about Zane's mother. His heart must be breaking at this time. My prayers will be for him and his mother at this time. I lost my mother two years ago and I still feel the hurt with the loss of mom.
    Have a prayerful Thursday Sandee & Zane. See ya my friends.

      Thank you Paul. She wasn't doing as well today as she was on Tuesday. She seems much weaker. πŸ™‚

    My thoughts are with you and Zane during this difficult time. I'm glad you are going back to your favorite yacht club. I'm thankful it's going to be sunny today after days and days of rain. I get to go out in it too for a haircut this afternoon! Yay! Can't wait to get out of the house for awhile!

    Hope you have a Happy St Patrick's Day!

    • March 17, 2016 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm

      I'm enjoying the sun too. We had a lot of rain too.

      Thanks for your kind words. πŸ™‚

  10. March 17, 2016 7:29 am at 7:29 am

    The joke is on them. I don't have any clothing that is green so I can't wear anything today.

    • March 17, 2016 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm

      Well, I hope that works out for you. πŸ™‚

  11. March 17, 2016 7:58 am at 7:58 am

    Oh my gosh I am so sorry. It is hard putting someone you love in Hospice, even if it is the right thing to do. Hugs my friend and hope you a fun St Patrick's Day!

    • March 17, 2016 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm

      It's the right thing to do but it doesn't make it any easier. πŸ™‚

  12. March 17, 2016 8:26 am at 8:26 am

    I am thankful that your blog reminds me to be thankful every Thursday.

    The Hospice is choice is a hard choice. Give your husband an extra hug from your friends in the blog community.

    • March 17, 2016 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm

      Extra hugs are always welcome. πŸ™‚

    the sun is shining, my sweetie and I are enjoying the beginning of yet another lovely day together and family members who have needed to change life styles are FINALLY getting help. Big hugs to you and Zane! Have a lovely St. Paddy's Day!

    • March 17, 2016 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm

      Thanks Kathe. Getting help is a good thing. πŸ™‚

  14. March 17, 2016 8:48 am at 8:48 am

    Wishing you and family members peace and health. Good to know that you are back with the boat club. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    I am thankful that I am finally back in the blogging world again. I loved it so much and just let it get away from me for a while. I'm also thankful that I'm getting to reconnect with all the people I miss interacting with through it.

    • March 17, 2016 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm

      Welcome back and get busy writing that book. πŸ™‚

  16. March 17, 2016 10:23 am at 10:23 am

    Sorry to read about your mother in law sometimes it is very hard doing what is best but the right thing to do πŸ™‚

    Best wishes to you both


    • March 17, 2016 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm

      It had to be done and it's what she wanted. That does make it a bit easier. πŸ™‚

  17. March 17, 2016 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm

    Sorry to hear about your husband's difficult time of late. None of us gets away without sorrow. It's hard to feel thankful some days.

    • March 17, 2016 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm

      I always feel thankful, but there have been too many bumps in the road lately. πŸ™‚

      Oh a Ruben sandwich. Now I'm hungry for one. πŸ™‚

    Continued love and hugs. She's lived a good long life. She's ready. I'm thankful today for sunshine. We have it.

    • March 17, 2016 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm

      She is ready. She has told us that, all the nurses that and hospice that. She's ready. πŸ™‚

    Boating season is almost here! I just wrote something about Natalie Wood's death for an upcoming blog post…and I dreamed about being on a boat last night!

    • March 18, 2016 7:03 am at 7:03 am

      Boating is a fabulous way to enjoy long weekends. We love all things boating. πŸ™‚

    Your family will be in my prayers at this most difficult time.

    Today i'm glad i got to wear green!

    • March 18, 2016 7:04 am at 7:04 am

      Thank you my friend. I know prayer is an intricate part of your life. πŸ™‚

  22. March 17, 2016 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm

    I am so thankful for you and that you don't give up on me. Thank you for your friendship. Much love and hugs.


    • March 18, 2016 7:04 am at 7:04 am

      You've been in my reader for many years Lydia. I won't give up on you. πŸ™‚

  23. March 18, 2016 4:05 am at 4:05 am

    Thankful my pet rock, Seymour, got to spend time with y'all. He's pestering me for a return trip. I'm thinking April πŸ˜‰

    • March 18, 2016 7:04 am at 7:04 am

      April works for us. Just send him and we'll be waiting. πŸ™‚

  24. March 18, 2016 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm

    That must be very hard on your husband and his mother. A difficult time indeed.

    • March 18, 2016 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm

      I'm sure it is. Hubby doesn't say much about it and mother just says she doesn't want to think about it. πŸ™‚

  25. March 18, 2016 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm

    96 my goodness, God love her. My heart is just breaking about her losing her daughter and your husband losing his sister. Hoping you had a wonderful St.Patrick's Day!!! catchatwithcarenandcody

    • March 18, 2016 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm

      She's tired and wants to be with her daughter. It's okay. Her quality of life isn't all that good. You're so sweet. πŸ™‚

  26. March 18, 2016 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm

    I'm sending you and Zane extra love and hugs, honey. Losing a parent is a tough thing to go through, but at 96, it is time. Xoxo

    • March 19, 2016 6:38 am at 6:38 am

      I agree, her quality of life is dismal at this point. πŸ™‚
