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 the holidays are over and we can focus on spring. In about six weeks we’ll be having spring weather during the day. I’m waiting for that.

I’m thankful that in about six weeks we’ll start seeing buds on the fruit and nut trees. It makes my heart happy.

I’m thankful that we’ll be planning boating trips again and getting back out on the water with our yacht club and our friends.

What are you thankful for today?

    I was just thinking yesterday that it won’t be long before spring returns but I know when the weather turns frigid again then it’ll seem like forever! For now, I’m thankful for the mild winter weather and even though it’s cooler than I like, it’s better than what others have. I’m also thankful to have you for such a good, sweet friend! xx

    Ooo thoughts of spring are nice right now, though we’ll have longer to wait in the chilly UK for nice spring weather. I’m grateful for my migraine medication working today! I’m also grateful for being able to take a little walk and get some fresh air earlier to clear my mind. Happy Thursday – I hope you have a lovely end to your week πŸ™‚

    I am thankful that the temps have stayed above freezing here in Dixie. WHY because there has been so much rain.
    I’m way over winter already

    I’m thankful that Christmas & New Year are done and now I get on my cruise. I was just wondering Sandee, you checked into my blog and left me a comment that either I can laugh or get excited. You said that you will be on the cruise ship with me. Is this really true? If so, I’m excited. Tell me it wasn’t just a joke at me. See ya for now.

    It wasn’t a good holiday for The Female Human so we’re happy the holidays are over too. We have a longer wait for spring but, we’re on the short side of winter and we’re thankful for that!

    You have a very positive attitude going into the dark days of winter. As I age, I like winter less and less but try and find the beauty in the season anyway. I’m thankful the PACE of the holidays are past…but I love the holiday feel. Take care, my friend.

      As long as I have some sun now and then I do just fine. It’s when the sun goes away for days on end that I have an issue with winter. πŸ™‚

    We are thankful that we had a nice day here today with warmer temps so Mom could take us for a long walk. But truth be told, we Sibes would love some snow.
