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.

Today I’m thankful for the many blessing in my life. I have a roof over my head, food on the table and transportation to get to the places I need to go. Many don’t have these things.

I’m thankful that I have a warm bed to rest each night. Many don’t have this.

I’m thankful I have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. Many don’t have this.

We all need to look around at how fortunate we really are.

What are you thankful for today?

    So many things to be thankful for today. I guess the most recent would be that my lawn is freshly mowed (last night) and I was able to purchase the new mower to get the job done easily.

      I’m happy you have a new mower that works the way you want and that your lawn looks good again. πŸ™‚

    I am thankful it is warming up in Arizona but it’s not too hot yet so no need for a heater or air conditioner, just open the door and let the breeze in through the screen. My favorite season.

      We’ve had a few days of no heater or air conditioner. I love it too. So does my wallet. πŸ™‚

        Yeah, that’s the other reason I love it.

      Some folks never look at all the good around them. I don’t want to be one of those folks. πŸ™‚

    Sometimes I feel bad that I want to move into a bigger better house when many do not have especially those who it’s no fault of their own just bad circumstances. I’m very thankful for a roof over my head protecting me from the elements. I’m always reminded of those less fortunate when the weather out isn’t purrfect and I know I have a snuggly place to lay my head. Blessings to you, my friend!

    • Sandee
      May 2, 2019 11:01 am at 11:01 am

      Don’t feel bad about that. If you can afford to do that then go for it. Be thankful that you can. Blessings back, Cathy. πŸ™‚

    I’m thankful that I have a pet rock that doesn’t insist on delivery Chinese food when I have a medical bill to pay. That’s loyalty.

      Seymour is a favorite pet rock in my view of the world. πŸ™‚

    It’s the things we take for granted that you brought out that I am most grateful for. Also that spring is here even if it is 3 months late.

    Am thankful that I didn’t need to get to work in a boat, and I worry about all of the folks who are having flooding problems.

    Wise and compassionate words. ~hugs~ I keep reminding myself how much worse things could be while dealing with stupid and persistent ‘first world problems’, a term a dear friend taught me. Be well!

    • Sandee
      May 2, 2019 10:56 am at 10:56 am

      They can always be worse. Be well too, my friend. πŸ™‚

    Happy Thankful Thursday! <3
    At the moment I’m thankful that I have a washer & dryer. It’s out there doing the hard work, while I get to stay in here and read blogs!
    For several times in the past we didn’t have them, and I had to either schlep the laundry to the landromat, or wash things in the sink with an old fashioned rub board. πŸ™‚

      I so remember not having a washer and dryer. Tough times. πŸ™‚

  20. May 2, 2019 11:32 am at 11:32 am

    Exactly, we should focus on what we have, not what we want to have. Thanks for reminding me!

      May 2, 2019 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm

      I agree. Want is not always need. πŸ™‚

    Today we are thankful the sun is shining and hopefully the ground is drying up a bit. It’s tough for Mom and Lightning with all the storms we have had. Rain returns overnight:( But let’s be thankful for all the beauty that rain brings to Mother Nature.
