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 I have all my medical appointments almost completed. It seems when you are in your late 60s you spend a lot of time going from one medical appointment to another. Nothing wrong, it’s just the way of things.

I’m thankful that hubby and I are pretty healthy. We are funny to watch sometimes when we get up after being seated for a bit. We just laugh at ourselves and move on. Well we move on as soon as we work out the kinks.

I’m thankful for my friends. I have a lot of acquaintances, but just a few friends. They know who they are. They are most precious to me.

I’m thankful for all the pups and kitties I visit each week. You all bring me such joy. Many I love and that’s a wonderful thing.

What are you thankful for today?

    • Sandee
      July 4, 2019 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm

      Yes, and sometimes it’s a very slow process of getting up. Oh well, at least we can still get up. πŸ™‚

      You’re much to be thankful for, Paul. It’s a good thing too. πŸ™‚

  15. July 4, 2019 7:21 am at 7:21 am

    It’s easy here. There are some streets where every building is a medical office or hospital. A quack on every corner.

    • Sandee
      July 4, 2019 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm

      We have the same kinds of streets here too, Kismet. It’s a good thing. πŸ™‚

      If we just take the time we can come up with all kinds of thankful things. πŸ™‚

  18. July 4, 2019 8:36 am at 8:36 am

    I love your photo commemorating Independence Day! And, I resemble your remarks about getting up after sitting a while. πŸ™‚ And, then we think we’re 30-something again and try and move heavy furniture! I hope you and yours have safe and happy celebrations today. ❀️

    • Sandee
      July 4, 2019 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm

      I remember moving furniture. I thought nothing of it in my younger years. Kills me now and I need lots of help. πŸ™‚

  19. July 4, 2019 8:38 am at 8:38 am

    Have a blessed Independence Day! And that photo is cool. Having ridden in a hot air balloon, I cannot believe it’s a real image as ocean winds I’ve experienced are highly unpredictable but I like the lighthouse in the scene with the balloons’ pretty contrasting brilliance. Be well!

    • Sandee
      July 4, 2019 2:01 pm at 2:01 pm

      I thought is was most unique. I’d be afraid to get in one. I’ve a fear of heights. πŸ™‚

  20. July 4, 2019 8:48 am at 8:48 am

    Happy Fourth of July!! May the Fourth be with you…((Hugs)))

      Yes it is. It’s the best gift one can have. πŸ™‚

  22. July 4, 2019 10:52 am at 10:52 am

    Great thankfuls. That “getting up” seems to get harder and harder as we age. Have a happy and safe 4th. Sawyer and Cooper Murphy send purrs. Hugs, Janet

      July 4, 2019 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm

      Yep, hubby is 70+ and I’m in my late 60s. It doesn’t get any better. πŸ™‚

  28. July 4, 2019 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm

    Luke is thankful to be one of the pups you visit that bring you joy. We love your comments. β™₯
    Aging is not for the feint of heart, is that not what they say? I am in my late 50’s, and hubby early 60’s, and we already feel those aches and pains at times. I do not like doctors so do not look forward to a time when I will have to visit them more! LOL

    • Sandee
      July 5, 2019 5:21 am at 5:21 am

      I love Luke. He’s such a fun pup.

      I’m in my late 60s and hubby is in his early 70s. We are at the doctors office more than we like, but we go and do what’s required. πŸ™‚

  29. July 4, 2019 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm

    You are such a gem! It is a real privilege knowing you. I enjoy spending time creating posts to share and always enjoy your posts. We aren’t are quick as we once were but we keep keeping on.

    Happy 4th July! A lovely thankful post. I am thankful too for the little things we tend to take for granted.

    • Sandee
      July 5, 2019 5:18 am at 5:18 am

      Yes the little things are the very best. We just have to notice them. Happy Friday, Nancy. πŸ™‚

  31. July 4, 2019 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm

      Yes there are so many small things that make life so sweet. πŸ™‚

  32. July 5, 2019 11:26 am at 11:26 am

    Oh yes, those post 60 creaks. That brought a big smile to my ancient joints and bones. Keep up the good work, physically as well as bringing smiles to your readers.

    • Sandee
      July 5, 2019 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm

      Yes, I can creak very well. We just roll with them. πŸ™‚

  33. July 5, 2019 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm

    “Lurching around like Frankenstein” is a description someone used once to describe how they are when they first get up. Pretty much sums it up! πŸ™‚ Glad to know you and your hubby are relatively healthy, Sandy! Without good health, everything else becomes less important. I’m thankful for that, too, minor aches, pains and annoyances aside.

    • Sandee
      July 5, 2019 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm

      I know. Yes health is so very important. πŸ™‚
