Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for. I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

I’m thankful that today we’ll head for our boat for the weekend. It’s the commodores picnic and since I’m a past commodore I should join in the fun.

I’m thankful for the peaceful life hubby and I enjoy. We don’t like conflict and will avoid it at almost any cost.

I’m thankful that we had our precious Little Bit for almost thirteen years. She went to the bridge October 22, 2015 and I still cry. She was the best four legged family member ever.

I’m thankful that both hubby and I had a fulfilling career in law enforcement. It is so sad the hatred so many have with law enforcement. I will tell you without law enforcement there would be anarchy. Without law enforcement there would be no justice system.

What are you thankful for today?

    Enjoy the commodores picnic.
    I have so much to be thankful for. My job that keeps me going, a boss who is supportive, friends like you who encourage me. And the list goes on.

    Peaceful is always a good thing. I can sure tell you we appreciate all law officers and the special things they do to keep us safe. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

    I am thankful to those who uphold justice and keep peace in my country, including those civil servants who deserved to be praised for their good job. I am thankful for life, for love ones, for health and for little things we have taken so much for granted.

    I am thankful that The Hubby and I stretched our hearts, and adopted cats into our lives. They’ve made such a difference to us, and life would be less fun without them. Now to convince him that we have room for more…hehehe! Have a good weekend on your boat!

    I think we’d all love to see pics of the boating weekend! I’ve learned a little more about you with this post, and want to thank you for your years in law enforcement. I have a deep respect for those that put their life on the line for others. I, too, tear up when thinking about the pets that have traveled over the bridge. They’re in our lives entirely too short a time. Hope your weekend is a lovely time.

      Looks like we both learned much about each other today. That’s a good thing. Monday I’ll be thinking about Little Bit all day long. I know hubby will as well. Little Bit was daddy’s pup. Followed him everywhere. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sandee, it’s a testiment to Little Bit that you still shed a tear for her. It’s heartbreaking loosing a pet, but would we have it any other way? I think not… People who hate law enforcment are out of their minds. I take my hat off to you, your husband and anyone who spend their life protecting others. I hate to think what the world would be like without you all.. I’m thankful for freedom. I too lead a simple life, but I am free to lead a life that makes me happy.

    When you say you’re a past commadore. Is that the Commadores?.. Just thought I’d ask. Have fun on the boat.

      We loved her so. She was the best baby girl dog ever.

      Past Commodore refers to boating. When you go through the chairs you start out as port/fleet captain and are responsible for all vessels in the fleet to get tied up wherever you’re cruising to. Rear Commodore is responsible for all drive in functions and those are in the winter months. The vice commodore is responsible for all cruise outs and these are in the good weather months. There are many things that need doing as well. Raffles and other fun activities. The commodore is the CEO of the organization and keeps all the wheels churning. After you complete the commodore year you are the staff commodore and it’s an advisory position. πŸ™‚

    We hope you have a wonderful time on the boat. Our Mom and Dad are very grateful for our law enforcement folks too. Here in OP we have a great police force, always there to help and always very friendly.

      We are having a wonderful time on our boat. I’m glad you have a great police force. Have a great day and weekend. Extra lovies to Lightening. πŸ™‚

    • Comedy Plus says:

      We loved our careers and treated people with respect. The average life expectancy for a retired law enforcement person is five years. That is if you make it to retirement. We beat both of those odds. πŸ™‚

    I did not know you had been in law enforcement. I thank you and your husband for risking your lives to keep others safe. I hope you have a wonderful yacht trip. XO

    We hope you have a wonderful time on the boat. The Mom is wishing that her and the Dad could go kayaking. Poor kayaks have been stuck in the garage for over an year with no outings.

    • Comedy Plus says:

      Being on the water is most relaxing for us. It’s a wonderful way to get out of the house and have fun with friends. I hope you get those kayaks out next summer. πŸ™‚

    I’m sorry about your furry love, Little Bit. They just really crawl into our heart and souls don’t they? Hugs to you..<3 – I’m happy you’re on the boat this weekend and enjoying an amazing picnic, I’m sure! But wait, does Lionel Richie know that you and the hubs were in the band?? πŸ˜‰ – And, I cannot thank you and your husband enough for putting your life on the line to keep all of us safe, even if we weren’t in that area. Keeping this country safe is a coast to coast, north to south effort and people really need to stop and think about how blessed and fortunate we all are to have law enforcement. You chose to protect us. You didn’t have to and I, personally, thank you for that. <3 You’re amazing, Sandee. <3

    I am sorry that Little Bit has passed but she was lucky to have had you for so long. I am also sorry that you had to face the prejudice during your career. They should have a holiday like vet’s day to honor police and firefighters (I’m thinking one holiday together to honor both so the companies don’t yell about people taking another day off to watch the parades) because both put their lives on the line when they go out to do their jobs as much as soldiers do and we often forget that.
